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.

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.

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.
