    I had no morning sickness at all, it was very odd actually! I didn't feel any different, it worried me in the early days as I would think the worst.

    At about 36 weeks I started vomiting when ever I ate meat.
    chicken, steak, fish.. It always just came back up.

    My DD was born at 40w 1d and weighed 10lbs 2oz.
    I didn't have a very healthy eating mindset during my pregnancy and my appetite went through the roof, I put on 30kgs.
    I would be more inclined to say my DDs weight was either my eating habits or my husbands genes (he was born 6 weeks early and weighed 6lbs something)
    His brothers were all on time, MIL never went overdue and their birth weights ranged betwene 10-12lbs.

    Suffered hyperemisis with all 3 and lost an average of 10-15kg off per pregnancy weight.
    Both DD's were 7lbs 13ozs and DS 9lbs 9ozs.

    I was in and out of hospital suffering hyperemesis from 6wks till the day i was induced cause i was so ill.

    DD2 was born at 37wks - 7p1oz which was the same weight as DD1 who was 2wks overdue and a perfectly healthy pregnancy.

    Morning sickness until at least 25 weeks and then returned at 34 for all of them. My smallest baby was 3.55kg so I don't think that at all.

    Babies are real little parasites - sucking all the goodness out of mummy. It takes a fair bit of weight loss during pregnancy to affect most bubs (although the weight loss may not be good for mum!). I had bad morning sickness in both of my pregnancies and my ds was 4kg (8pd9oz) and my dd was 4.4kg (9pd11oz I think). No little babies here.

    Yeah that's probably very true. My first pregnancy was particularly unhealthy and stressful so maybe that explains my prem low birth weight baby. Our bodies are truly amazing at nourishing and protecting our bubs.
