    Default Morning sickness - what's your experience?

    Hi girls, just looking for some (hopefully) good news stories to help me keep my chin up. I'm almost ten wks struggling a lot with 24/7 nausea and vomiting a couple of times a day. Last night was horrible. I was up and down all night feeling sick. So...

    1. When did yours peak?
    2. When did it get better?
    3. When did it stop altogether?

    or anything else you want to add.

    Thanks

    Hi
    Mine peaked around 9 weeks then was gone by 16/17 weeks. It came back in the last trimester though especially if I ate too much.
    The best thing to settle my tummy was lemonade icy poles, plain chips and nectarines. There are plenty of things you can try like b6 tablets or head to the gp and get a script for zofran.
    Hope u feel better soon

    Poor thing! I know how u feel.
    Mine peaked at 9weeks and started easing about 27weeks. That was all day sickness. Multiple times a day.
    I eased off to once a day and then once a week after that.

    I are plain crackers. I had them stashed EVERYWHERE lol. I never let myself get that hunger pain. I was barely able to hold anything down.
    I second icy poles too. Towards the end I was having at least one frosty fruits lemon lime and bitters icy pole a day. It really helped.

    N I know it sounds gross but if u feel really crappy try 2 minute noodles. It's at least something going in and I found them to be the easiest thing to have come back up.

    MS is the worst. I absolutely hate/dread the first trimester. Give me labour over MS any day haha!

    1. When did yours peak? With all 3, between 7-10 weeks. Weeks 9 and 10 probably being the worst.
    2. When did it get better? With number one, I stopped feeling all day sick at about 12 weeks and would just have one morning spew, which totally disappeared by 15 weeks. Bub #2 I stopped being sick all together by 12 weeks. With this current pregnancy I felt sick a lot earlier (started around 5.5 weeks) and stopped feeling all day sick by 11 weeks, but still had the occasional morning spew until 14 weeks.
    3. When did it stop altogether? Sorta already answered above, so anywhere between 12-15 weeks.

    I used Zofran infrequently in my second and third pregnancies which I found a lifesaver. It's not cheap but it's brilliant to get you through those days when you need to not being lying on the couch. Small frequent snacks were also key to it not getting out of control. Hopefully you only have a few more weeks left!!

    Thanks for the replies girls. It really helps to not feel alone.

    I've been on zofran since hospital at 7 weeks. It def helps but doesn't stop it altogether.

    I feel your pain!
    Mine started with my first and this one at 6weeks.
    It's all day for me and this time I'm on zofran for the days when I can't move!
    With my first it was each and every day (eased off at 33weeks) and finish the day I have birth.
    With my second I'm currently 14wks and hoping it stops soon.
    Hope yours does too

    Mine peaked at 7 weeks (spent that week in between bed, the couch and the toilet) then after that I learnt to force dry crackers down - sometimes it would take me my whole 40 minute drive to work to eat one Salada! But I found hunger was the worst thing for my MS and as long as I was grazing all day (crackers, grapes, apples, watermelon), I could mostly control it.

    Good luck, I hope yours passes quickly!

    My morning sickness peaked at 6 weeks and gone by the 16th week. The whole 10 weeks of experiencing dizziness, headache and just feeling sick with no apparent reason is challenging itself.
