Does morning sickness get worse with each pregnancy?

This is my first time and I'm 9 weeks 4 days. My morning sickness hasn't been too bad. I haven't thrown up at all (yet), but I've been nauseous all day for weeks. The last few days its gotten a little better. I was wondering if it typically gets worse with each pregnancy. My husband said it does...he had 2 kids already with someone else, so I'm assuming he's going by what she was like.

I have no personal experience cause this is my first but i hope not. Listening to my mum, aunty and my cousins wife and they have all had 3 or more babies they have been better each time. But have herd that depending on the sex of the baby the morning sickness is better or worse.

Every pregnancy and every body is different. It is not uncommon to experience nausea all the way up to the 3rd trimester. I was experiencing severe nausea throughout my first pregnancy but during my second pregnancy I found a natural remedy called No to morning sickness tea that helped me a lot and eased me completely.

Yep, every pregnancy is different. This is technically my third pregnancy (I miscarried in my first). I'm still only in the first trimester, but the morning sickness is pretty bad with this one. What really works for me is little sips of ginger ale and red raspberry leaf tea. You can harvest the leaves yourself if you research it. :) I just order Sea Bands because I heard they're amazing for morning sickness, but I haven't tried them out yet. I'll update this and let you know.

I am almost 39 Weeks & I had morning sickness well ALL DAY sickness throughout my WHOLE FIRST TRIMESTER & the First part of my SECOND TRIMESTER. I hope you don't have to deal with that cause I was so sick I had to go to the ER & get an IV of fluids. NOT trying to scare you, lol! But I don't believe every pregnancy you have will be the same.. They say the 2nd pregnancy is worse but I have yet to know... There are people who nothing happens to so its kinda hard to say if it gets worse or not..
Just hope that doesn't happen to you...

Each pregnancy is unique and different. I think after you're first pregnancy you do toughen up to it a bit so it doesn't seem as bad. Knowing what to expect helps it not seem as bad.

i have a daughter . i was feeling sick about 3 or 4 days before i missed my period and at about 6weeks started to actualy be sick. i was sick untill 14-16week with her.

im 8 or 9 weeks pregnant with number two and i didnt get the sicky feeling before i missed a period like i did with my daughter. and it doesnt seem to bad at the moment. yesterday i went the whole day without being sick(although i felt a little). with my daughter i wouldnt have got away with not being sick. so for me its not as bad this time.x

no it doesn't necessarily get worse but each pregnancy can be very different than the last

I think it just depends on the pregnancy. I am 14 weeks with my second. I had severe morning sickness with my first, nausea and puking for the whole 9 months, although as the pregnancy went on it did get a bit better. With this one I have still been nauseous and puking, but less than with my first. I have heard that women who have severe morning sickness in their first pregnancy are more likely to have it in subsequent pregnancies, but every pregnancy and woman is different.
