I love being pregnant, but I have never had any morning sickness with any of the 5 pregnancies. The only tough part of pregnancy for me was at the end with the twins. I am small and carrying two was very difficult at the end. I could barely move, sometimes couldn't walk, etc. That last month was very rough. But normally when pregnant, I feel terrific and always in a very happy mood.

Hey there!!! I have four children 13,9,8 & 1. Every pregnancy is different for every woman, but I can say that each of mine were different. My first pregnancy I did not get sick at all. I wasn't even nauseated. My second one I had hyperemesis gravidarum which is excessive vomiting during pregnancy that leads to dehydration and weight loss if it is not dealt with. I could not eat or drink anything with her for about 17 weeks. Every smell made me sick and I was constantly vomiting. My husband was working the night shift at the police department and my mother in law had to come stay the night in case my oldest needed something because I was in bed all of the time. My mother in law even drove me to the doctor one time because my husband had court or something I can't remember. I was vomiting the entire way to the doctor's office. I had to sit in the bathroom that was in the lobby of the building until they called me in the doctor's office. My mother in law had to leave their office and come get me in the bathroom. I lost ten pounds and ended up in the ER with dehydration. They put me on Reglan and sent me home. The Reglan didn't really help me but I took it a couple of times. My third pregnancy I was nauseated in the morning and vomited once the entire time. My youngest which is my first son ( I have three girls and one boy) was interesting because I had evening/night sickness. I was good all morning and early afternoon but by the time 4pm hit I was extremely nauseated. I vomited once and lost 5 lbs in the first few weeks. I was also extremely tired. I suffered from bronchitis that lasted about 3 months but that was most likely a result of my blood sugars. Mine were extremely high and I was on large doses of insulin. My husband tells me that he knows when I am pregnant because I sleep like a hibernating bear. All of this wore out by the third/fourth month. I was a high risk pregnancy with all of my children due to Gestational Diabetes and I had preterm labor with two of them. My two oldest were born at 38 weeks, my third at 36 weeks and my last one was an emergency C-section at 35 weeks. My 35 weeker was 7lbs 4 oz when he was born so he would have been HUGE if I had gone to 40 weeks. I was induced with all because of the diabetes. The induction did not work with my last one because of his heart rate and it acutally stopped as I was being rushed into the OR. I had been receiving steroid shots to speed up his lungs and had an amnio to see if his lungs were mature prior to them delivering him. All four had some sort of drama for me, but that isn't the norm. My mom had four too and it was a breeze for her. She didn't have any problems at all. My best friend had pregnancies like me but her mom did not. None of my other friends had any problems in their pregnancies. Most women do just fine and have completely event free pregnancies.

I was misreable. For the first three months like clockwork I was sick as a dog. 24/7.. .not just in the morning!!! Then progressed to constant heartburn no matter what I ate or drank (went through Tums like water!). Then the swelling begain. My feet were the hugest hamhocks you ever saw and my fingers and legs.....it was terrible. But, on the other hand, it was also very exciting. Everytime I felt the baby move, or towards the end when my whole stomach would move, I was in awe. It was totally amazing. I had my very first baby at 39 and just celebrated my 40th birthday in May, so I think it's even more amazing to me because I never thought I'd be a mommy! My baby was 8 pounds 13 ounces and was a c-section because the cord was wrapped around his neck two times. He is no a few days shy of 2 months old and is the healthiest and happiest baby!!! AND he's close to 13 pounds already!!!

Well with my first I was put on bedrest at 6 months because I had early stages of pre eclampsia, but the delivery went fine, just 10 1/2 hours labour, and my second was much easier, mind you I had a fibroid tumour while I was pregnant so I had to have a c-section because of it and my son was also breach. So certainly not a breeze, but much easier then some moms.

Quoting Jessica:

My 1st pregnancy went well, no morning sickness at all. My second pregnancy wasn't as easy, I did have "morning" sickness...ALL DAY LONG for about 3 months! Plus I had GIGANTIC babies with both (10+ pounders!) so I was huge and miserably uncomfortable with both from about 4-5 months on. By the 7th-8th month I would have paid someone to "GET THIS KID OUTTA ME NOW!" if I could've! lol, but it was all so very worth it!


Oh and heartburn....HOLY COW!  I had never, in my life, had heartburn until my 2nd pregnancy...awful!  Come to think of it, my daughter (the 2nd child) really put me through a lot while pregnant...lol, but now she is my GOOD little mermaid!. ;)

My pregnancy was wonderful. I had a girl, no morning sickness (just some food aversion for a few weeks, which wasn't so bad), and was pretty healthy and happy the whole time. Aside from at the waiting at the end, of course! And some low BP issues which just meant I had to sit down if I got dizzy, which happened frequently.

It was great. I would do it again in a heartbeat (though, not for a few years) :)
