Not really a vent, but I am curious to know...

Those who have both boys and girls or even just one gender, what was your morning sickness like?

So far, my sickness with this pregnancy is different then it was with my two boys, so of course I keep throwing around in my head, well maybe this baby is a girl because of the difference, but I obviously don't want to drive myself crazy with this or be disappointed, but i'm curious to know how other mothers sickness is or was like.

I can't help because I'm one of those horrible women that don't get morning sicknes :-P

I've had 2 boys and a girl and each pregnancy was the same, I got HUGE but none of the horrible symptoms.

It doesn't really matter what the sex of the baby is because each pregnancy is different. I was pregnant with my daughter and I never had morning sickness. I had a friend who was pregnant at the same time I was, who was also having a girl, and she was sick all the time.

I've only had 2 pregnancies but my morning sickness was worse with the boy.

For me, with both my boys, nausea started at around 7/8 weeks. It was all day, every day until around 16-18 weeks. The nausea was really bad to the point I couldn't even talk at times, but I only actually vomitted in the evenings. I had to stay away from certain foods too.

So far with this pregnancy, nausea started at around 7/8 weeks again, but for the most part it is only a few minutes here and there. It is worse is the evenings, but I have not vomitted. I am still able to eat everything.

Wow Kelly that sounds brutal. I don't know how you made it through work.

J was on a schedule--that ended once he was born :P

Every single morning, up to about half way through the second trimester, I woke up at 2am and puked every 15-25 minutes until 5am. It was ALWAYS over by 5am, so I ate and got dressed for work--after the morning sickness, I felt fine, even energetic, for the rest of the day.....until about 6pm when I had to go to bed in order to be up and functional by 2am.



EDIT: J is a boy.

I had morning sickness with my first girl and not with my second girl. So it all just depends. I was convinced I was having a boy.

Well... I can't really tell you since in my girl pregnancy there were 2 of them and w/ my son it was only one. ;)

I was nauseous w/ the girls almost constantly from 6ish-16ish weeks, but only ended up actually puking 2-3 times/week. When the morning sickness ended... the heartburn started and it was WICKED... and lasted til after they were born.

When I was pregnant w/ my son.... the morning sickness wasn't quite as bad or as long and the heartburn was easier to deal w/... I did puke a lot more throughout the pregnancy w/ him, but that's more cuz I had a constant cough (that I had for 3.5 years straight actually...) and if I was eating and coughing.... I'd choke and puke. :(

I had a girl first and I was sick almost all the way through her pregnancy. I am now 28 weeks along with a boy and I was sick from about week 8-16. Since then I've felt great! My sister was equally sick with her son and her daughter. I think the difference this time is how I'm carrying the baby. My daughter was really high and I had serious heartburn which contributed to the sickness. This baby is super low so that helps. Whether that has to do with gender- who knows!! Good luck with the pregnancy :)
