    Default Curious...."Long term morning sickness = lower birth weight babes?

    I had ms right until DD was born then it magically disappeared instantly. I gained 7kg the whole pregnancy which total 4kg above my pre preg weight. I was classed high risk as she was IUGR/ SGA/ low sac fluid. She was born 3.0kg with none of the problems they assumed. Clearly she was taking everything needed despite my food intake

    Not for me. Chronic m/s first trimester then again in the third. DS2 was almost a kilo heavier than DS1 (when I only had nausea in the first trimester).

    Would be something interesting to study. I was sick until 34/35 weeks, DS was born at 38+3 weighing 6 pounds 10 ounces. So not huge but not small considering he was a little bit early.

    Could be possible however I had no MS at all and my son was only 3kg birth weight

    Not true for me - my boy was 6 pound 11, and I had 2 days of feeling "off", but nothing else. I felt fabulous, no morning sickness at all really.

    My friend was dreadfully sick through both pregnancies. With her last preg it was up until about 6-7 months. Both her babies were over 11 pounds.

    This. I was breast feeding, vomiting constantly and trying to grow Katelyn. I was concerned I'd lose her early on because I lose 6kgs in 2.5 weeks. It took about 3 months (on anti-nausea meds) to just get back to weight at conception.

    THOUGH when stopped being sick (around 18 weeks) I REALLY felt like I was eating for 3. But I still didn't gain a lot until I weaned jasper (around 7months pregnant)

    But yeah it's hard on your body, but baby - or in my case "babies" - get dibs on the nutrients and calories and if they can't get it from your diet they strip it from your body.

    I was sick pretty much the whole way through (had a 4 week gap in the middle), lost 6kg by 20 weeks but gained back 2kg by giving birth. My boy was 3.47kg, so around 50th percentile.
    But who knows, maybe he would have been bigger if i hadn't been so sick. He is 2.5x that weight now at 4 months, and has been hovering around or above the 97th percentile for weight since 1 week old.

    I had no MS to speak of and my daughter was born 5lb6oz (she was IUGR though). My mother had three kids - I was 6lb11 and she had mild morning sickness with me, but she had hyperemesis with my brother (8lb2) and sister (8lb6). So I'm not sure there's anything at all to the theory
