(and maybe you'll be one of those lucky ones who gets a twinge or two of nausea and then flies into a "second trimester burst of energy" (another myth for me)...

"Did" I have morning sickness??? I still do. At 8.5 months pg.

I guess would say it's severity is fairly average, I haven't had to go to the hosp for an IV or anything. But by about 8 months you start wondering if it will actually go away even after childbirth. I can't imagine EVER enjoying food again, or being able to do the dishes without gagging.

This was my first pregnancy, so I thought it was normal. My midwife informed me that not being able to keep liquids down is not actually normal. She said it was hyperemisis and I took Unisom for a few weeks. It was severe from about 9 1/2 weeks to 14 weeks. Recurring mild nausea and smell aversions (like to my fridge ) lasted the whole pregnancy.

ETA: I lost at least 5 lbs.

Christian wife, busy happy mama to 4yo DS, 3yo DD, 15mo DS, and #4, expected next spring!

That must be me too! I am so phobic about throwing up, so I was scared to DEATH! I think I scared myself into feeling sick a few times but I never actually was. Thank God in Heaven!

Yep, I had average to severe, almost hyperemesis the first pregnancy. My OB prescribed some kind of medication, but I ended up forgoing it because I didn't feel comfortable with the possible side effects of it (I had looked them up at the time of prescription). This time my morning sickness is pretty average. I've only vomited once, and if I eat something right after waking, I'm ok for the rest of the day.

I think my morning sickness is attributed to my body "making room" for baby. With my first preg, I was pretty overweight, starting at 152. The first trimester left me so unable to eat that I lost about 20 lbs, but by the end of the preg, I was back up to 152 and baby was born healthy and strong at 6 &1/2 lbs (my family bakes small babies). This time around, I'm not as overweight as I was the first time, coming in at 138, but apparently, it's still too much for my body too handle in addition to a baby. So, as of today, at 7 wks, I'm up to 137. My body knows me better than I do!

I had "light side of average" morning sickness with all 3 of my pregnancies, though my 2nd pg it was the most severe (but still well within the range of "average") because I was caring for a toddler who needed less sleep than I did, and the fatigue made the nausea worse.
