I'm a few weeks into my 3rd trimester and I have begun to experience morning sickness again. My 1st trimester morning sickness started out about the same as I'm having now, but quickly progressed. I had about 6 weeks where I was basically bed-ridden and could literally eat NOTHING but bread and water and that came up anyway. I lost 6lbs. I am also waking up for no apparent reason every few hours, but can't get back to sleep at all. I am sure this is all normal but it'd be nice if I could eat real food when I need it the most. I would appreciate input to calm my fears that these things are abnormal.

They only advice I have is for the sleeping. I would get up in the middle of the night and take a bath, that always seemed to help relax me for a few more hours of sleep. And like one of the other ladies already said a body pillow can be really helpful in making you comfortable. Hope all goes well. The best thing is to remain calm getting worked up never helps.

I had the same issuses. I would wake up every hour on the hour and had morning sickness through out all 3 pregnancies. My doctor suggested keeping a pack of saltines next to the bed. He said don't sit up right away, nibble on saltines and then get up. The saltines will settle in your belly and will help you from being sick. It helped me. As for sleep, I had to take naps during the day which helped. It's normal! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. Hope that this helps.

You don't have a doctor to back you up?



You want us to tell you this is abnormal? I can't, its totally normal. Go see a doctor, a real doctor to rule out and wipe out any worries.

i had morning sickness all through my pregnancy, my doesn't sound like it was as bad...I wasn't bed ridden but i did have weight problem, i lost weight until i was about 6 months. Can you hold down your prenatals? I never could because they made me more sick but i would be most concerned with what the baby is/isn't getting i would ask your doctors about that the doctors thought my son was going to be small because i wasn't taking my prenatals but quite the opposite happened, my son was 11lbs. As for the sleeping thing that is pretty normal i think. I could never sleep once i started to get pretty big. It's just too uncomfortable. not to mention your nerves keep you up because you are going to have a baby! I used to always sit awake in the middle of the night.

I lost 15 lbs in my 1st trimester and also had morning sickness in my 3rd trimester. I would avoid foods that seemed to bring it on the most. I also talked to my doctor and he gave me some medicine for the sickness. I would talk to your doctor and see what he says. I think it is pretty normal to have morning sickness in the 1st and 3rd trimesters. I also had sleeping problems but I never asked my doctor about those. I just figured it was part of it! LOL Something that helped my sleeping problems was a body pillow and sleeping in the recliner. For some reason the both helped A LOT! =)

My doc had told me the morning sickness is NOT abnormal even in the the 3rd trimester. She suggested eating---sounds like that is problematic for you. Maybe when you wake up in the middle of the night you can snack on some apple slices or crackers. Eating (slightly) calmed my sisters morning sickness.
