I'm 24 weeks and I have still have it, doc gave me zofran and it is amazing have me phenegran first but I can't take that it makes me to sluggish and sleepy I still have a 3year old to take care of so I can't be sleeping a day only thing with zofran is that it constipates you and gives you a headache but that's better than vomiting and you can always buy stool softeners

Answering your question might worry you but, I had all day sickness the entire way through with both my children. I actually lost 20lbs. with my first and 25 with my second I lived off of twizzlers and green tea with my second daughter. I do not deal well with pregnancy, however my sister did well and was over the sickness after 25 weeks. So it really depends on the person.

i am at 29 weeks now and still have troubles with morning sickness every now and again but my doctor prescribed me something that helps out alot. it causes drowsiness so i take one at bed time and it still works in the morning so i can get up and get food in my system and get to my day.

i had morning sickness until the day i delivered with my second son, with my 1st it was only for about a month. every woman and every pregnancy is different. i tried everything. motion sickness bands ginger crackers. you kinda just gotta find what works for you

I had morning sickness until about 25 weeks. My doctor said it was normal for some women. My sister had morning sickness throughout her entire pregnancy, and that is what her normal is. I really hope you start feeling better soon!!

I had morning sickness up until the day I had my baby. I think Doctors brushed off how serious it was. I lost a lot of weight, and I think they didn't make a big deal of it because I was over-weight before I was pregnant. Anyhow I was constantly getting sick and I literally couldn't eat anything!! It was terrible! My baby ended up being 3 weeks early and only weighing 4lbs! I can't help to think that the sickness was the cause of this. I know it's hard because just the smell of certain things would make me sick, but try to eat as much as you can! The smell of herbs would make me soooo sick. Ugghh, my sister-in-law took us to the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate, and I felt so bad "cuz I ran to the bathroom like 10 times lol.

Im 29 weeks and still get nausea almost everyday... My mum and grandma and all 3 of mums sisters spent most of their 9 months in the toilet with all their kids, so don't stress.. Just make sure you drink PLENTY of water and try eating a dry biscuit as soon as you wake up.. I find that helps some days, or an apple.. and I usually keep a little container or almonds or something in my bag so i always have something light and small to snack on if I start feeling ill.. Good luck with everything :)

I had morning sickness the whole entire pregnancy with my daughter. It depends on what you eat during the day. My whole first trimester I couldn't even keep Ginger Ale and crackers down. During the second and third I couldn't eat anything that had Red Dye in it...and I couldn't eat any red meats. I was not allowed to eat anything with sugar or a sugar substitute because it made my daughter so hyper in the womb that she would kick a lot and it would make me sick. Every kind of Pre-Natal Vit. made me sick...so I was made to take good ol' Flinstones.
Not read through all the answers, but I had morning sickness, afternoon sickness and night sickness all the way through my pregnancy-I even had to be given anti sickness tablets in labour! Nothing would appease it either.
Where as it never stopped, it eased slightly between 16 and 23 weeks, and then it came back full swing, especially at night, i'd wake in the middle of the night, ready to vomit!
Some of us are just unlucky-my sister didnt get any sickness at all when she was pregnant!
But I did get told during my pregnancy that a recent study concluded that the more sickness you get during pregnancy, the higher the IQ of the child........ :) if its right, go us!

i was sick even at the thought of food my whole pregnancy & even threw up 3 times during labor. i lost weight up until 26 weeks when is started having contractions...my doctor put me on a cortisone pump & i gained 10 lbs in 6 days so they took me off of it the next week. after that i would teeter tottor back & forth, gain 3 lbs, lose 2. this kept going until my doctor gave me protonix & in the end i gained about 15.5 lbs. whats funny is i measured 3 weeks ahead the whole time (i had my daughter my daughter at 38 weeks due to a case of acute kidney failure & my bp) & my daughter only ended up weighing 6 lbs 12 oz...

I was sick with my first and fourth child during the whole time. I was even sick during labor. Both of my babies were fine and weighed over 8 pounds. My doctors never gave me any meds. I wouldn't worry unless your baby is not getting bigger and your doctor says there is a problem.

I had it right up to the end, last time I threw up was in labour. I was one of the unlucky ones and I chucked more than once a day, I even had a routine that woke me at 3am to be sick for some weird reason. :( I hope it goes away for you.
I had it up to about an hour before I actually gave birth, all day long for the first 3 months, then usually just once a day after that.

I had morning sickness until 25 weeks.....aahhhh the joys of pregnancy! Sorry I know how you feel! I have heard that some people have it the whole time....there is a medication your doc can give you or there are vitamins that help...just ask your doc!
I had night sickness all the way to the end .. This was with my 3rd baby too....
I think it had a lot with how much I was eating ...

I had all day sickness from day one to around a week after i had all my babies. Its not normal, but certainly not uncommon. Youre not alone. If you are still losing weight or feeling quite unwell, ask to speak to someone about pharmacological help with it. Its not good for baby if you are too sick. Good luck!
If Maxalon is making you feel ill (yes it does happen, though docs refuse to believe it!), ask for Ondansetron (Zofran). Its brilliant. Its the only way I could keep food down at all.

When I was pregnant with both my girls , I had morning sickness all day and nigh for the first 6 months. Your dr. should be able to prescribe pills for it, they're little white ones with a picture of a pregnant woman on them, they where like a god send to me!

i had it starting at 4 weeks (before i found out why i was getting sick, i thought i had the flu) all day long, right up until i was puking while i was in labour. never stopped. it was awful. the day after i had him i had the biggest meal i had in 9 months and enjoyed every nausea-free bite!

I had morning sickness my whole pregnancy and my baby was 8lbs so it does really effect them too much mosty just you. My doctor put me on a low dose of phenergen which helped a lot so you might want to ask your doctor about that. Good luck

At 4 months i had lost a total of 12 lbs. due to constantly puking (all day everyday not just in the morning) and i did until the day I gave birth... however I did manage to turn around quickly and gain everything back plus some when they put me on a high calorie diet. I can remember 1 day during the entire pregnancy I did not puke... It just became normal to me after awhile so just stick it out it will be over before you know it and once that baby is here you wont even think twice!

I had morning sickness until i was in labor...everything got to me...smells, motion sickness in cars, certain foods. it was terrible and the dr gave me suppositories to take since i couldnt keep pills down...they didnt help at all. i think some people are just more prone to it.

I had it the whole time I was pregnant with both my girls. And I even tried the medicine the doc prescribed,but it didnt help. My boys weren't so bad tho. The thing that helped me most was watching what I ate. No carbonated drinks,fried foods,spicy or rich foods. And one of the absolute best things that helped was to either eat a pickle a day or drink a very lil pickle juice. It REALLY helped. Good luck!
I had morning sickness with both mine,but with my son it was worse I had morning sickness on and off for my entire pregnancy,one day I'd feel sick all day( and being sick!) then I'd be fine for a couple of weeks. It was actually pretty annoying as I could wake up and feel great,then bam out of nowhere I'd be sick!

I am currently 36 weeks pregnant and still sick. I was put on meds that made me feel the same way. I just wanted to crawl out of my skin. I have hyperemisses and had a picc line (an IV) in my arm for 5 months. I didn't have anyone I could relate and wish I would have had support. being sick is the hardest thing to live with day-to-day.
