    Morning Sickness

    Does morning sickness usually occur within the first few weeks or can it develop later in the pregnancy ?

    It's really different for everybody Sharon. M/s didn't hit me until 7w exactly and it was all day continuous nausea. I didn't start vomiting until 11w and it continued until I was 23w.

    Sharon, i was one of the lucky ones and had no morning sickness at all. I might have felt a little queasy for an hour or two a few days a week, otherwise i felt fine and had a healthy appetitie indeed.

    Another one of those things that is different for every pregnancy and there is no norm.

    it can happen at any time as far as i know. i got it quite early on and seem to have gotten over it now - just short of 10 weeks (knock on wood). but my younger sister who is also preg at the moment, started to get sick around 12 weeks and it continued throughout her second trimester. my mum was telling me that for each of her six kids it was different. one she suffered no m/s and the others all at varying degrees and times throught her pregnancies.

    so i guess it is just luck of the draw.

    As the other ladies have mentioned, it can start at any time!!

    With me, it hit at around 7 weeks and luckily (I can say that now!!) all it involved was nausea, headaches and tiredness. I didn't actually vomit once in 3 pregnancies!! Having said that, I often wished that I did actually vomit because I reckon I would have felt a whole lot better!!

    Hope this helps and that you have a wonderful pregnancy!

    Best wishes

    i was like kelli - nauseous all day, but no vomitting - and maybe it would be better to just vomit and get it over with.

    as the others said, there are definately no rules! it seems to be different for everyone,

    Thanks for your replies. I so far have been feeling really good. I am only around 5 weeks though and was a little worried as people around me all seem to be surprised that morning sickness wasn't my first symptom of being pregnant and that I'm still feeling ok. I think they actually want me to have morning sickness, lol.

    Thanks again for your imput.

    the most common question as soon as someone finds out you are pg is "have you have morning sickness yet?" it is like they wont let you forget you should be sick!!!

    I wouldn't stress too much.... I thought I was lucky at 6wks that I'd had no morning sickness (my sister-in-law is one of those lucky ones with no M/S at all for the first pg and none yet for the 2nd). Two days later M/S (and a series of viral infections) hit with with vengence. All up Ive lost close to 10kgs and only now at 15wks does it feel like M/S is subsiding. It's finally got to a point where throwing up all day is inevitable if I get a nasty migraine/sinus; but generally can be controlled by eating regularly - esp. starchy foods.

    I know it's hard when you don't have M/S because you're almost searching for visable changes so you feel more PG. Rejoice in the fact that you may yet be one of the lucky ladies to escape the wrath of M/S! Gotta be handy if you work and you don't want anyone knowing until you're 12wks plus. EVERYONE at my work knew because I was so sick all of the time from early on.
