I have a weak stomach. Very weak. Before all of this, when the dog would barf, I would gag a few times and clean it up. NOw that all of this crap is going on, I actually do the sympathy barf in addition to tons more gagging. What is going on with me??? I've always had a weak stomach, and still celebrate the anniversary of potty training my youngest (we're coming up on 7 years, here, people!) but this is getting out of hand. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have any advice for this?

I used to have a weak stomach until I became a mother. Once I had babies peeing, puking, and pooping on me nothing phases me any more.

Could it be stress related?

You may just be so stressed you can't deal with one more thing!

I don't know how to change a weak stomach. That's why surgery was out for me as a med student (shudder).

When I'm more stressed it gets worse. I took a LOT of Zofran after d-day.

I assume you are a BS? If so it might be because you have thousands of dead butterflies in your stomach.

Symbolic yes. However I have cycled for years and can ever remember getting a stomach cramp. Ever since d day when I do a hard effort on the bike I get a stomach cramp. Someone hear told me the same thing - dead butterflies. Just got one last week and I td myself when I can go a month without one I can consider at "forgiveness". May sound silly, however at least it is a quantitative measurement, rather than a feeling.

Probably is stress related. Something gross added on top of all the other stuff that is going on just put everything in reverse. Thanks everyone. I appreciate the comments.

Stress triggers digestive issues for me too. I eat healthy but after DD I barely eat and what I do comes to haunt me in many unpleasant trips to the bathroom. I found crisp bread helps keep you full and firm things up. It also stays in your stomach to help absorb acid that gets over produced during stress time. The brand I get is called Wasa. Two of those with hummus or eat it with soup will do the trick each day. Good luck.

I agree. Stress is bad for you. It totally messes up everything.

I told WH that I was done on march 21. I ate very little the last week. Over the weekend I was so sick to my stomach from the constant emotional abuse he was meeting out that I didn't bother eating for three days. When I did try. I came back up.

Today WH and I were sorting through our life together. Splitting up everything. He actually was able to look semi meek. Like it bothered him too. Idk if it was a way to manipulate me. But I made sure he didn't lay claim to what i needed for kids. Most of what he wanted was just fluff. He can have it. I have kids. Who are awesome. They made bacon eggs and pancakes for dinner.

Stress plain and simple
Activates the digestive enzymes. I bit a gastric ulcer from mine and needed meds.
See your doctor, may need something to block the acids.

May be tmi but I also get diarrhea
