    Default Might be a silly concern...

    I'm only 4 weeks and so far have not experienced any nausea or morning sickness at all. But I am really paranoid because I work in a supermarket, on the checkout and our toilets are right at the back of the store, so if I did need to throw up at work I would have a long way to run to get to a toilet.

    So what I am hoping to find out is, when you got morning sickness did it start suddenly or did you ever have a sudden need to throw up, or did you body give you some warning? I can't very well run off to the toilet if I'm in the middle of scanning through someone's groceries (well, I guess I might have to if it happens).

    Basically I'm just irrationally worried about it and hoping for some reassurance.

    If you pop into the chemist they normally sell plastic vomit bags. I kept a few in my handbag for those unavoidable moments Hope your morning sickness eases.

    I always had nausea first before the actual throw up!
    Hopefully you won't get morning sickness!

    I never spewed from morning sickness, but I carried around those plastic vomit bags just in case.

    I worked as a barista and had to keep a bucket under the coffee machine. Thankfully I only had to use it 3 or 4 times; I could generally hold on for the one minute walk too the bathrooms. Not my finest moments but better than losing it on the floor halfway there. It would come on very suddenly for me! Generally it would be a smoker or someone wearing heavy perfume that would set me off. Good luck!

    I'm really fussy about where I throw up and luckily have never had to have an emergency MS spew. I tend to be really nauseous to the point where whilst I could still not chuck it makes me feel an awful lot better to do so.

    I wish I knew about those vomit bags as I threw up in Big W once, there was just not enough time to get outside and find a toilet, I threw up in the street too.. I hated it!

    I can understand your concern as when i was pregnant with DD1 i worked in a job where running off to the toilet was not easily done (as it would mean leaving customers and a lot of money behind). I did have morning sickness and needed to take medication to stop vomiting before every shift, i also told everyone i was pregnant and had m/s so they understood if i needed to be taken off my table that it needed to happen asap or i would spew on it. Thankfully i only had to do the run off a couple of times, once i only just made it to the toilet as it was an issue getting someone to stand in my place - only when they saw me start to gag did the boss step in while i ran as fast as i could.
    For me it would come on suddenly, it could be a trigger smell that set me off (like perfume) or just a sudden queasiness out of nowhere, i could still hold it for a few minutes though.
    I suggest the spew bags - i had these in my car but never at work (would have been a good back up however).

    You may not get any m/s at all though

    With my morning sickness (only got it with DD), I had only a little bit of warning before chucking. One day I went to work during that time and a heavy smoker came in to pay rent. As she stood there while I processed her cheque, I felt the nausea coming on, then as soon as I left I had to run to the kitchen (would have gone to the bathroom but it was further away), and unfortunately had to chuck in the kitchen sink

    For this reason, I spent 5 weeks staying with my mum and stepdad, as I was too sick to even look after DS. I couldn't stand up without having to run to the toilet to chuck. Thankfully it eased by 14 weeks.
