what are your thoughts?

High hormone levels = everything is progressing normally (were a miscarriage imminent, levels would drop)
Unique response to hormones = everyone's body reacts differently, meaning some people get sick in response to the hormones, some do not.
It's all just theories, except for I remember hearing about a study that correlated morning sickness with a decrease in miscarriage risk. I don't have time to look it up, though.
sorry that you're worried. does your mw or dr. think that the baby's heartbeat may increase? are they concerned about it? best wishes.

I have read the same thing, that the more sick you get the less likely to mc. I don't know if its true but I have had no "morning sickness" at all and I'm at 7w. I think I'll feel better after my first ultrasound, this Wed. :
Happily married, Waldorf-inspired homeschooler to Kylan (9yo), Everest (7yo), Bodhi (3yo), and a baby GIRL due in Oct 2015!
Hormonal effects I can feel include aversions to smells, incredibly sore nipples, and headaches. At 6 weeks my hormone count was 26,000 which is excellent.
For reasons yet to be explained, some bodies just react differently to all those hormones coursing through our veins!

She told me that morning sickness is not part of pregnancy and if it was then all females that are pregnant would have it, no exceptions.
She told me that it is actually a sign of unhealthy blood in your body. She said that she has very healthy blood and was never once sick with morning sickness with either of her children.
Now I had bad m/s with the first one and this one is looking to be no better....but according to her I have high yeast levels and need to avoid bread and dairy, which I haven't been doing. I don't like to admit that it is true because with the first one I would have considered myself very healthy and I **** got it...however how would I have known if I had sick blood?
The only reason I took her theory to heart was because I had no explanation why all woman don't get it?
Miscarriage rates are are lower among women who experience morning sickness. That doesn't mean that you can't have a healthy pregnancy without it. Only about 50% of pregnant women experience morning sickness and clearly more than 50% of women deliever healthy babies.
Morning sickness is actually not always related to the hcg level. While it is true that women carrying multiples, who have higher than average hcg levels, are more likely to experience morning sickness, women with levels on the low side of normal experience it, too. No one knows for sure what causes it. There are as many theories as there are pregnant women on the planet.
I had severe hyperemesis three times. I've read everything I could ever get my hands on about morning sickness.
I will say it kind of takes the whining out of my sails! I mean you can't whine about something you did to yourself.
Like I said she just told me that I had too much yeast in my body which is also why I have headaches, poor digestion, and low energy levels etc....
It is the pregnancy that is gives you those symptoms but if you didn't already have issues with your blood then you wouldn't be experiencing them. You see? She is saying that the pregnancy is just adding to your already impared body.
I definitely wasn't saying I believed her, I was just telling what I was told.
She also told my dad who has DANGEROUSLY high blood pressure and has been told by several DR that they are surprised he has not dropped dead yet....that the pills she has given him are working and breaking up the fat in his body.... Thus the nosebleeds that he is getting that are lasting all night are a good thing!! :
The one consistency is that my losses were pregnancies with absolutely no discomfort whatsoever. My later loss was also a discomfort-free pregnancy up to that point.
Different people, different body chemistry, different experiences.
But it's not myth.
LOL I think morning sickness is related to gender. I must be having another girl LOL.
If anyone told me morning sickness was a myth, it would make my blood boil I'd be so pissed. THEN we'd be talkin' bad blood!!
I had mild nausea in the beginning of this pregnancy [before I tested].
This pregnancy has been healthier than my first. Yes, my daughter came out healthy, but she also came out small and early due to pih/preeclampsia.
I don't know if I believe that myth necessarily. Not every woman/pregnancy is text book!!
For example, not every woman can be on the birth control pill. I am one who cannot as i experience similar symtpoms to morning sickness while on it. The hormones in it are just too much for my system and it makes me incredibly sick. So i think each woman will respond differently and im sure there are women out there who have experienced ms and still mc. I think instead of figuring out WHY we get ms these docs should be trying to figure out how to cure the blasted ms!!!!
