I was sick 24/7 for the first 3 months! I had horrible morning sickness, could not eat, was so weak I did not leave the bed for a week at one point, could not go ANYWHERE without puking out the car door, and both my husband and mom had to take time off work to take care of me. I was so depressed and felt like I was dyeing. I thought it would never end! But, trust me it does! My second and third trimester I have not thrown up or been sick one time. It's been wonderful. Support from my family is what got me through the first three months. The only thing I could eat was soup, and drink sprite..I lost 8 pounds in my first trimester. And Im having a boy! Trust me it could always be worse. You will get through it! Congrats on the new addition!

My dr. took pity on me because I had 2 year old twins at home when I became pregnant with my third so he prescribed some zorfran- which does not make you sleepy. phenergen does make you sleepy so I took that at night if it was really bad- i can't sleep if I'm nauseous. I lived on the preggie pops and the hard candy. It's actually early to be having morning sickness- i think it usually starts at 8 weeks. With the twins I started puking right after implantation (about 5 days after conception). No nausea at first, just sudden vomting. i was given the anti nausea meds after 12 weeks.

I feel you! I'm the same way (also 6 weeks along), and it wasn't like this with my son. I'm having pain everywhere but my lower abdomen, too. I've never had heartburn this early. Something sour (preggie pops, lemon drops) usually help with nausia. I had to have sour gummy worms this morning because we couldn't find anything else. Congrats on the baby!

I was like that with my son, but not with my daughter. Every pregnancy is different. I always made sure I had something in my stomach. I used to eat a snack every couple of hours. Saltine crackers helped me a lot as well. I hope you feel better. I remember that feeling.... not a good one, but well worth it.
Hope this helps.

Oh man, I feel your pain! I had two boys and had morning sickness with both of them for the entire nine months! Stay with the bland food and if it does continue into your second trimester the Dr. can issue a medicine. Good luck and Im so sorry!

I spent the first 3 months that way. Hang in there.... it will pass. I lived on those sweet stripes peppermints and baked potatoes because the smell of anything else made me nauseous. The doc did give me a prescription for phenergin, but I didnt want to take it unless things got very bad, I fought through it and found a few foods that made me feel better and lived on them until it passed at around 14 weeks. I was told by a friend "the sicker the mommy the healthy the baby"... but that didnt make it any easier. Best of luck.

Look in to Hyperemesis. I had it with my son not with my daughter. I aws sick for almost 5 months and coul'dn't keep anything down not even water until 4 months. If you are getting some food and not losing weight then it's just morning sickness. I had lost 25lbs in 4 days so my Dr gave me meds and i was on IV for the first 4 months off and on. If you can eat ginger cookies and ginger ale. it has to be real ginger ale though for it to work. Or some tea.
Ah, maybe this time you are having a girl. Every pregnancy is different and a lot of women say that the gender of the baby has something to do with it. Nibble on gingersnaps. They helped my nausea a lot. I also ate saltines and chewed on TUMS (which aren't harmful and will provide you with extra calcium). If your morning sickness isn't getting better you can talk to your doctor about a prescription med that will help control it.
