morning sickness peak

My husband and I aren't sharing the news yet that we are pregnant, but that hasn't stopped the morning sickness for me. I'm almost 6 weeks, so I know it's early and that means I have many more weeks of this to look forward to.



Though I wish I felt better, it's relatively tolerable right now. I'm taking all of the morning sickness advice and it seems to be helping.



Here is my question: Does morning sickness typically get worse before it gets better (think: bell curve) or does it hit hard right off the bat and then gradually get better? I hope that makes sense. I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't get much worse than this!

My two pregnancies were different. My first, with DD, I was sick three times a day, until the 4th month. Second, DS, I was sick off and on at the very beginning, then it let up for the remainder.

Once again, Congratulations!

For me it was like a switch was flicked when I hit 6 weeks pregnant. It was pretty bad for me for pretty much the entire 1st trimester. I had it bad in the morning until about lunchtime. But it always hit me the worst around 4:30/5:00pm until about 9pm. Thankfully I only got sick 1x at work. The other times I was at home.

Hereís what helped me:
- lemon/ginger tea (I sipped it all day)
- pickles (Also sipping straight pickle juice - it sounds disgusting and counter productive but itís a strange remedy that really helped)
- snacking on salted almonds during the day (I lived off of the almonds and lemon ginger tea while teaching)
- Lays potato chips (only this brand

Also, once I got pregnant my body rejected dairy. I went from eating yogurt and drinking Kefir everyday to the thought, smell, taste made me vomit. My son is now 18 months old and it still kind of turns my stomach.

Congrats! This is such an exciting time. I know it can be rough....Remember even on the worst day - this will pass and youíre having a new baby!

Congratulations! As others have said every pregnancy is different. 25 years ago I had twins and never had any morning sickness ( but my first trimester I was beyond totally exhausted!!)
A co-worker/ friend had such horrible morning sickness with her child she swore she would never have another. However she has two girls now, who are both in college :-)

Congratulations!!! That's such exciting news!

As DSLBUG said, every pregnancy is different. I had three different experiences. My first two (boys) were much heavier with the morning sickness than my third (girl).

Same for me with my first! It hit me like a ton of bricks and didn't let up at all until about 13-14 weeks. Then I started feeling better.

With my second, it didn't come on quite as strong and wasn't quite as bad, but it was still pretty bad and lasted from 6-13 weeks.

With my third, it was much milder and not as lasting.

In none of the cases did it really get worse before better. It just stayed the same level of pain.

Congratulations!

Every pregnancy is different.

With my first I was sick all day, every day. Then when I hit my second trimester it was like a switch was turned off! I never got sick again for the rest of the pregnancy.

When I was pregnant with my second, I was a bit nauseous for a few weeks, but never got sick and it was only for a short time.

Congratulations! I was sick all day every day, with both pregnancies (one girl, one boy). I was still vomiting after delivery with the first one. Everyone is different and I hope that you don’t have to deal with it for too long.

For both of my pregnancies I had morning sickness from week 8-week 24. Iíd dry heave first thing each morning and that would be it for the day. Like clockwork.

Congratulations!

Like others have said, every pregnancy is different.

My morning sickness (morning? HA! more like 10am - 3 pm) didn't last very long, about half way into first trimester and then it stopped like a faucet on about week 15. For me, it was more queasiness than actual sickness and I felt horribly nauseated until I got this excellent advice from a friend who said, "listen to your body. If your body wants eggs, give it eggs." My body wanted plain yogurt and it was magical--within 3 spoonfuls of yogurt, I started feeling better. I ate a lot of yogurt during that time.

My friend with the advice said she had the same magical experience with eggs. My sister couldn't get out of bed unless she had saltines and orange juice--as soon as she had that, she was fine. Another friend said applesauce was wonderful.

I hope you feel better soon!

Congratulations!! No stupendous advice to give (never been pregnant myself), but I do know from others that doctors can prescribe some medications if it reaches the point where you want that help. ((hugs)) and best wishes that the morning sickness doesn't last much longer for you!

So true, GraceKrispy! I couldn't think of a better visual to represent what I was saying though.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Morning sickness is different for everyone. Some never have it, some time to time, some off and on throughout the entire pregnancy, some severe, some mild but for most it usually passes by the 12th week give or take. Once it hit I don't remember it actually getting worse other than the fact that some days or moments were worse than others. Its actually a sign of a healthy pregnancy!

I wish you the best and hope you are one of those moms whose morning sickness is short lived!

Nancy
