Ok i wanna know (if you care to share)...Who else is having morning sickness? When are you having it and how long does it normally last?

I have it, but only when I smell certain things...IE: cigarette smoke...My SO smokes (outside), and when he comes back in I can still smell it clinging to him...It makes me so sick!!! I haven't puked yet (thankfully -- knocking on wood), but I have come close.

The nausea comes and goes...I've never had it all day, or for an extended period of time...



What other symptoms have you hit?

My boobs hurt, but not all day, or every day...



All of this makes me wonder...Am I having a boy? ....When I had my first, I was sicker than a dog!!! The bathroom was my bedroom and living room...It was horrible!! I was so sick I was dehydrated for over half of my pregnancy!

I feel super lucky with my symptoms, I have only mild nausea and only occasionally if I smell something disgusting. Extremely sore nipples. Fatigue, but I also work at an active job 40-50 hrs per week. Shortness of breath when I get physically active. Frequent Urination. I am really enjoying my pregnancy, its my first and I am 10 weeks pregnant

Usually I don't even feel hungry because I go straight to starving with the sick feeling however today I did throw up from it and having some water usually calms it but didn't. I am approx 6 weeks. Would this be morning sickness kicking in?

Oh I am almost 8 weeks and all I do is feel nauseous or constipated! I'm nauseous 24/7 it seems! It affects me at work, home & college! I'm on Reglan & B6 but I still can't eat because the smell or look of any foo just turns my stomachs upside down! I have puked several times, and I have rushed to the bathroom several more! I love being pregnant but I hate feeling so sick :(

My 3rd pregnancy is so total different then my other 2 (both girls). I never had any problems eating, only a few headaches. This time, I don't feel like eating at all, but still make myself, constipated and bloated. Tired, with low blood pressure etc. Against the morning sickness, I start eating a tinned fruit like pear while still in bed, wait a few minutes, get up and eat my breakfast within 10 minutes of getting up (otherwise I get sick again) this seems to do the trick for me. At the beginning I also lived on peanuts for a day - provided me with the energy I needed, but caused no problems with my stomache.

against the constipation, I only eat 3 to 5 dried apricots or plenty raisins - that seems to move it.

maybe this one is a boy - fingers crossed....

If you have nausea, try atomic fire balls. My OB recommended them to me with my first pregnancy. They work wonders! Thankfully my all day sickness is starting to let up! It's being replaced with constant heart burn though. :( I don't know which is worse!

Preggie pop drops made me sicker...One thing that's helped me is gum...Doesn't matter what flavor...As long as I don't chew it too long, and am able to put it in my mouth as soon as the nausea hits I'm fine. My favorite is 5 Elixir...Yummy berry flavor!! -- And it makes my breath smell good!! LOL

preggie pop drops are amazing! But I got the same effect from any sour candy.

Eek. I've never been through this before, and everyone around me (mostly) hasn't had a baby in so long, they don't remember what its like. I'm only 19, and some of my boyfriends family is not supporting me in my decision to keep the baby. Lucky for me, his aunts, and grandparents are. So is his Dad, so it helps.

As for symptoms, I'm nauseated all day, and nothing seems to help...
My boobs have already grown a cup size, and they hurt like hell, all day, every day.
I've only actually gotten sick a few times, but I am super tired all the time, and take naps ALL the time. They are usually short 5-10 minutes.

I haven't had my first appointment yet, but the doctor thinks I got pregnant around New Years. It would make me closer to 9-10 weeks then the 7 she estimated a week ago. :-\

It also makes me Due late October, right around the same time my Aunt had a baby and he passed away.

I've had some headachs too, more than normal, but I also haven't been adjusted yet, they seemed to be ok when I was getting Chiropractic adjustments (It's a LONG story why I'm not, but soon I'll be back to them). Most of the time Tynol helps with the headaches, I don't like taking them too often though, I had one last for 3 days! I'm scared to take a really hot shower to help my back/neck out a little bit so I just suffered.

Ugh, my morning sickness and bloating have been HORIBLE the last few days!

Anyone else feeling the headachs? I hate them! Nothing helps... stupid increased blood flow! Im 6 weeks now and just don't feel hungry but no sick to my stomach other then first thing in the morning but eating fixes that right up! But I'd take that over these headachs! at least when I was sick after I puked I usually had a little while before I got sick feeling again... my poor son is getting the cold shoulder the last couple days cuz he is just too loud!!! :(

Ok...I think I spoke too soon...Today has to be the worst m/s day EVER!! It feels like a flashback of my 1st pregnancy!! I wondered if this was gonna happen...GRRRRR!!! This kind of m/s leaves me useless...I feel sick to my stomach and like I'm gonna puke at any given moment...It's frustrating since I can't get anything done...Just in writing this post I've been up 5 times, thinking I'll be puking soon...Life is SOOO unfair!!

I get nauseated. Never threw up w/my 1st & haven't yet with this one. Nausea either goes away when I get something on my stomach or I get nauseated after eating. The 1st time, I couldn't cook meat, but haven't had any problems this time around, so far. This time I'm getting heartburn, which I NEVER got with my daughter, who was born with a full head of hair. I'm on bedrest now, but still get really tired, even though I'm not doing much! I also get the headaches & my boobs are sensitive. As far as pickles go, I can only eat Valasic or Claussin; the others turn my stomach :P

Sore boobs is number one but it only happens sometimes like my first pregnancy and then i have no morning sickness yet (knock on wood) but it could still come. Pickles are the stuff OMG im really loving my pickles and spanish olives (green olives) and i cant stop eating i cook all the time and i clear my plate and then look at my husabnd like he better hurry up or else lol. I have a runny nose for no apparent reason im so tired that i make my daughter take two naps with me lol. I hope i dont get acne again my daughter stole my face when i was pregnant(old wives tale girls take your beauty) with her. So maybe its a boy for me this time. My mom says she wasnt sick but was ashy or rather ashen the whole time with my brothers and im the same way now so we shall see. Sex has been amazing for us lol i dont know why but its just so much better and more frequent. Right now im lovin this pregnancy

I've seen those Preggie Pop Drops a couple of places in town here...Was wondering how they tasted...Might have to go buy some soon...Cuz I don't think my morning sickness is gonna go away, just like with my first...

the other thing I forgot to mention about the morning sickness...I was recently introduced to Preggie Pop Drops. They are an all natural candy (brown rice, cane syrup, etc), variety of flavors (lemon, ginger, green apple, rasberry, etc) and they have been extremely helpful. I pop one in my mouth at the first sign of queasiness and by the time I finish the candy Im good to go:)

Im only 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant with my second child and Im having morning sickness...I actually started experiencing it at 4 weeks! My breasts also hurt/burn! When I was pregnant with my son I had terrible morning sickness that required medication and it lasted from week 7 until week 14 and then came back in the 3rd trimester! I hope you feel better soon!

I have had all day sickness that started this past weekend! Also my nipples are sooo sore and I'm exhausted and hungry a lot more. I'm starting to wonder if I could be having twins again because this pregnancy is going exactly like my twin pregnancy so far! The morning sickness has been so bad already!

At first I wasn't that tired...In fact, it felt like I had so much energy I could jump over my apartment complex! Now I feel just doggone exhausted, I can barely keep my head up! It's a fight to stay up and watch the 10 o'clock news, and that's even with a few naps!!! LOL

Interesting comment about sex - i feel the opposite, it hurts! It seems like my whoo-haa has closed for business - its so tight! Not that hubby is complaining, but why the hell does it hurt so much?! Could it be a hormone thing?

I'm only 4 weeks along so I luckily don't have any m/s yet. That came at 12 weeks or so with my first one so i'm hoping I have a good handfull of happy weeks. The only symptom i'm noticing is very tender breasts. I didn't have that with my first. Also, I'm just full of energy and my mood is great which is opposite of how I was with my first and the 2 years following her. This is the best i've felt in a long time!! I can only hope it stays that way :)

Pickles are OK, but I normally go for green olives, I'll eat a jar at a time! Also, DH informed me I've been snoring pretty loudly lately, I don't normally snore so it's kinda weird. I guess with all the extra snot I've got it's making me snore like crazy!

OMG Amy, I feel you with the pickles!!! But forget ice cream, which is my favorite!! I can't stand to even be around it...I notice more adversions every day...But there are so many I don't remember them! Raw meat is totally appalling!! I can't make any food which is killing me since I love to cook!

Oh crap! I forgot to mention that I have acne too!!! Geez....See there's the pregnancy forgetfulness too! The first few weeks the acne was HORRIBLE! It seemed like every day I was having a new one pop up. I was so not impressed with that...Never had acne with my first.

I've been sick since I conceived, but this m/s is better than with my son, this comes and goes all day. Mainly triggered by smells and hunger, right now i'm starving, so i'm sick. Boobs hurt but not all the time, mainly in the morning and after work. I'm so unbelieveably thirsty all the time!!! And I have acne, which i never had with my son. So cross your fingers for a girl this time!

I'm not having any morning sickness yet. The only symptoms I am having is being really tired, moody and very thirsty. My sense of smell has gone up too. My boobs hurt every now and then but I am suprised that I am not having any more symptoms. Maybe I am having a girl this time.

I'm feeling it most of the day, the morning is the worst, I can't eat till noon. Some things set it off in the evening. I've only puked a few times, so I'm glad about that!



I'm tired, VERY tired, I've been having horrible mood swings, increased headakes, sore boobs/nipples, bloating, very gassy, overall the classic prego symptoms. I am so far feeling exactly how I felt with my son.



It's hard to say if it's a boy or girl by those symptoms, I've had a friend who's two pregnancies were exactly the same and had one boy and one girl.
