When did your nausea *peak*?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I started experiencing nausea at 6 weeks and it progressed to vomiting (a lot) last week (8w3d). I've got the vomiting under control (I was becoming dehydrated and was prescribed a medication to help with the vomiting some), but I am wondering when most people who have had nausea/vomiting felt theirs peak. I am now 9w2d and I am beginning to feel a little bit hopeful that maybe the uncontrollable vomiting I had late last week was the "worst of it" and maybe I will begin to feel a bit better (or at least, stop getting worse each week) in the next couple of weeks. I know it'll probably continue for a while, I'm just hoping I've gotten through (or am getting through) the peak.

I've read that nausea often peaks when hcg peaks - that should be around week 10 or so, right?

This is my first pregnancy and my mom never had it this bad, so I turn to you all.


Edit: I should clarify, I am more interested in when yours was at its absolute worst. I know I could potentially continue to feel sick for months, but I just want to know if I should expect it to continue to *worsen* or if this is as bad as it gets.

I had it for about 5 months. 20-22 weeks, with all my pregnancies.

When was it at its worst? Or was it the same the whole 5 months?

Mine started at about 9 & 1/2 weeks
stopped at about 14 weeks I think.
It was always worse at night. I woke up feeling ok..then about 1-4 in the afternoon I'd feel icky & it just progressed until I went to sleep.

For me the worst was the first trimester, but I vomited everyday for my entire pregnancy last time and so far am doing the same this pregnancy. I also still feel sick the majority of the day.

Mine usually starts at 6weeks. I'm at the peak right now at 10 weeks and it should be better soon. I've never had it past 12 weeks. I don't vomit though, just feel aweful and nauseous.

I had m/s from 5-10 weeks both times. I can't say really when it "peaked", though, as it just started suddenly one morning and just as suddenly stopped one morning.

I'm almost 11 weeks (will be on Friday). It seemed to be the worst last week and the week before. I was practically in tears a couple of nights bc it made me so miserable, and I missed a good friend's party on a Saturday night bc it took me out. It seems to be easing up a little this week. I'm hoping it'll fade out entirely once I hit the 2nd trimester. I miss enjoying food and I miss my energy.

Mine started at exactly 7 weeks (Mother's Day--how fitting!) and lasted until about 11 weeks. I remember starting to feel much better by 12 weeks.

But I should say I only vomitted once (that first day, Mother's Day), and then the rest of the time was just horrible nausea and food aversions.

For me it has always peaked at 8 weeks and been mostly gone by 12 weeks.

I honestly can't remember when the peak was with my other pregnancies, although the nausea was gone by 13-14 weeks.

This time I'm at 11 weeks and the last week or so has been the worst yet. I really hope it's gone soon!

Weeks 7 and 8 were the only weeks I felt nausea, never had to vomit though.

Ginger helps with nausea.

I'd say around 6 weeks it was horrible, then it let up, then was horrible again around 12 weeks. I had "morning sickness" until I was 6 months along.

I had all day morning sickness from 6-10 weeks (lingering a little until 12/13 weeks) and the absolute worst of it was around 7.5/8 weeks. I threw up several times a day in that time frame, but only a few times total after that.
