    Default Morning sickness and you

    Hey girls,

    Just doing some more research so I know what to expect if/when I get one of those wonderful BFP. I've heard that morning sickness affects everyone in different ways, which makes sense considering we're not all the same.

    Anyway, I was wondering if someone like me who doesn't throw up when sick (it goes the other way) am I likely to throw up with morning sickness, or will my body react the same?

    I hate throwing up (of course no one is going to say it's their favourite thing to do) and haven't vomited since for as long as I can remember, so I'm wondering if I'll be able to keep that trend going throughout morning sickness. Is anyone else out there like me and doesn't vomit when everyone else is?

    I'm very rarely sick...I think I've had gastro twice in my life, incl childhood. I was also wondering when I fell pregnant if that would follow suit, and sure enough while I felt nauseaus at times in the first trimester, I never once !

    I've actually developed a bit of motion sickness. When I'm eating, if in the car, I start getting really really spewie.

    I haven't really been feeling nauseas as such.. just sudden spewies!

    Howdy!
    I usually don't get sick either, mine is the other way too! TMI!
    But when I was preggers, I just was nauseas 24-7! It was a yuck feeling let me tell you! But I didn't ever throw up! And it lasted for about 9 weeks. Then the rest of the pregnancy, every now and then something would still make me feel like that! And even after I had the baby, I still get a bit nauseas with certain things! Bizarre hey!

    Never experienced MS with any of mine...Yes I do count myself lucky, and really sympathise with those that do.

    I had all-day-getting-worse-in-the-evenings sickness with all three pregnancies, but I didn't throw up.

    To be honest, there were times when I would have loved to heave, as I'm sure I would have felt better for it.

    What helped me was:
    weak spearmint tea
    ginger beer, especially one called Traveleasy which had ginger and peppermint, designed for motion sickness
    Martin and Pleasance Tissue Salts Comb-S for upset stomach from the health food shop (but only when dissolved in warm water, not chewed)
    lots of citrus fruit
    foods with a decent protein content
    sour fruit flavoured preggie pops

    but what works for one person won't necessarily work for others

    The bad news is that even if you don't throw up you can still feel like throwing up. That was me for my first pregnancy. I don't usually throw up but often wished I did - thinking that would make it pass. Second time round I had the same sickness, but also threw up a couple of times.

    As others have said, you may strike it lucky and not get sick at all.

    I hate throwing up and normally I will avoid it even if its a stomache wog! (I dont get sick often though).
    With my first I had a week of vomiting, but about 8 weeks of nausea.
    I have all day sickness with this pregnancy. I have vomited a few times a day every day for over a month. (Im 11 weeks and its only now just starting to ease up).

    With my first I felt sick (kind of like a hangover) constantly, but didn't throw up.

    With the second, felt sick and threw up daily for 8 months!!! The first two weeks and the last two weeks were the only time without

    But I have to say, once I threw up, I felt much better and was able to get on with my day.
