I'm hoping that now at 9 weeks I'm just turning a corner and that it's not just the medication or worse, another miscarriage.
So for those who had morning sickness, when did you start to turn that corner??
I have a huge thing out of town on July 25th, so I'm really hoping to be all better by then!

This time my morning sickness definitely started to ease up at 9 weeks. It still wasn't great but it wasn't as horrible as it had been.
Try to rest, Mama, enjoy being a newlywed and newly mama, and repeat this mantra "My baby is growing normally, and is healthy, strong and vibrant" (got it from Katest.) when you feel like things aren't going well.
I'll bet your Dr. found something that works for you . Sounds like you were pretty darned miserable.

In all cases I had it from week 6 until week 11.
I do hope you are turning a corner!!!

Now at 26 weeks I am all over it unless I see something really gross.
I'm sure you'll start feeling better soon.
Week 10 was the worst, it was a bit better by week 11, and by week 13 it was completely gone except for the food aversions.
I had Hyperemesis with my first and now have it again with my second. With my first, I didn't take any meds since I just didn't feel good enough to do the research. before getting pregnant this time around, I read a ton about the meds on www.helpher.org and talked extensively with a bunch of midwives and doctors. Anyhow, the meds have helped, although I have to admit that I don't like taking them still. It was either that or puke every hour, which is far worse for the baby. I go in for IV's every week and that helps a ton. With my first pregnancy, it eased up around 11 weeks and was just about gone by 14. I am 10 weeks now and hoping it will be the same. Research shows that HG oftens mirrors previous pregnancies, but of course not exactly. Sometimes the length is shortened in subsuqent pregnacies, but my midwife told me it is usually NOT longer in subsuqent pregnancies (at least not by much).
Did you have HG with your first? Are you taking Zofran? Hang in there. It is pure misery, but it does have an end. ALthough when you are going through it , it sure doesn't seem that way.
