Sorry if my response is not what you hoped to hear.
With my first (DS) I was severely ill from 6 to 12 weeks, spent the entire time hospitalised and on a drip. Maxalon did not help and I was offered nothing else. At 12 weeks I suddenly felt fine and had no nausea the remaining of my pregnancy.
I am now pregnant with my second, a girl, and am now at 20 weeks still vomiting every morning and taking zofran. Without the medication I spend the entire day wrapped around the toilet bowl, but with it I vomit once in the morning and then feel nauseous but no vomiting for the remainder of the day.
My midwife said from her experience it gets worse in subsequent pregnancies.

This is probably no help but thought I would comment. I had zero morning sickness with ds but with dd this time I was in and out of hospital because I had to be on iv meds because if hg......will play a massive part in choosing wether or not to go round three and try once more.....

This time im going to chat to my Dr about an action plan to deal with it. I cant afford the zofran (and it didnt work last time). It took me being transported to hopsital in an ambulance for them to take notice, then they did nothing anyway. I will rock up to the hospital for iv fluids every week if i have to. That was the only thing that made me not throw up (even if it was only for two or so days after the fluids). Ive also started keeping track of my hydration, and im making sure i drink at least 2L of water a day from here out as i found the less i was hydrated the worse i felt then it was a big cruddy cycle of sick from there onwards.

I didn't get it 1st time around with DS, in fact I was barely sick with him. This time around I have been sick pretty much since I found out I was pregnant. So far I have had 3 stays in hospital and am on zofran. The zofran doesn't work all the time. I've lost over 10kgs since Easter and most of the time barely feel like eating. They think it could be a hereditary thing in my case as most of the women in my family have had it in some form. I'm hoping that it will stop at 12 weeks but I don't like my chances. If it gets worse each time this bub will be my last

I had it right up to and during labour with DS1 at 42 weeks, up to 34 weeks with DS2 but thankfully only til 17 weeks with belly babe.
However the HG is the deciding factor in why there will be no #4 for us. I cannot go through it again. I am now 33 weeks and I am over 12kg lighter than when I got pregnant.

I'm now 5+1 and so far so good. I got sick at about 5+4 with ds2 so I'm expecting it. With him though i wasnt sick at all then bam! This time i get a few queasy waves here and there. I'm eating all my favourite things now, just in case i can't have food for 4mths.

Yup, I got it again this time around. It lasted a few weeks longer this time around as well. With DS it was up until 12 weeks and this time around 15 weeks. Torture!

Its not fun, I'm hoping mine will stop or at lease ease shortly, but I don't like my chances. When I was in hospital the first time one of the midwives/nurses told me to use breathing techniques and that will help stop me from feeling sick. That and to drink ginger beer, ginger tea and ginger supplements as well as get sea bands. She basically was implying that it was all in my head. Its easy to say breathe through the nausea when its so distracting you cannot think of anything else. I was so glad that she wasnt on the next time I was in there other wise it would have been "see where your breathing techniques and ginger got me" I was not impressed.

Ginger makes me sick so no good. With ds2i tried maxalon, zofran, stematil (im allergic), homeopathic stuff, mylanta, b6, sea sick bands, and ginger tablets. Nothing stopped me throwing up multiple times a day except iv fluids. I was in hospital 3times between 6wks to 20wks, I refused admission because if my other child not having a carer as my dp works fifo.

I'm dreading it if I go back in. It's ok at the moment because DS is away on holidays. But DP works in the railway so his shifts are irregular and he goes away to barracks. Not quite as bad as if he was a FIFO, but it makes it hard - especially with no reliable family to help. The only thing I am able to keep down at the moment are small amounts of gummy lollies. I think the sugar hit is enough to keep me going. Hoping that it all eases for everyone soon
