I kneel and vomit into toilet. My hubby thinks it's disgusting to vomit in toilet, he will always go outside and do it in the bush, I find that a bit weird.
Stand and aim. Getting too close to toilet makes me feel worse and I hate the smell of chuck which usually sets me off for another round.
I use those handy hospital vomit bags ,still have a supply of them in the cars from my last pregnancy as I had hyperimesis for all 3 pregnancies and I vomited while driving ,shopping and anytime it was inconvenient lol
I don't like the loo as it is not a good position if your constantly vomiting and gave me stomach cramps.
I do remember with by last bub I had just given birth and was holding her while sitting up and just vomited on the floor in front of me leaning over bubs as there was no vomit bags in the room but ya know I just didn't care at the time lol

But if its only vomiting I squat in front - less mess and I find that being so close to the loo gets things over and done with more quickly lol
I stand to vomit... my DH thinks it's strange
Kneeling on the floor so I don't end up chucking on the floor, or if I'm really hungover or drunk with my arm on the seat and head on my arm, trying to keep so much body against the floor tiles or wall to keep cool. When pregnant with dd usually re bath cos I couldn't make the toilet.
I kneel over the toilet bowl. I generally only vomit when I have gastro so it's bucket by the bed and I carry it with my incase I can't make it to the toilet on time...unless I'm sitting on the toilet and need to do both, then it is the bucket but I hate cleaning the bucket afterwards...gross!!
Plus I vomit through my nose as well as my mouth and have to spend a good amount of time blowing my nose to get the chunks out, and then some of it generally goes down the back of my throat as well and I then have to force that up...it's easier to flush and have the vomit gone while I deal with that.
aargh tmi areca! I'm off to chuck now
