For those of you who've done this before, how long did your morning sickness last?
Mine - #1: 12weeks, #2: 11weeks (probably more like 15 weeks because my EDD was way off), #3: 26 weeks.

With my other 2, I never really had morning sickness. I was queasy when I first woke up, and some things didn't sound quite as good as they usually did... but I wasn't actually sick.

And with Weebu, I'm 10.5w and I'm still staying nauseated all day long, gagging over the littlest things, etc.

With ds I was nauseous until about 14 weeks but only threw up a couple of times (brushing teeth - ugh!). I was able to keep it under control by eating every two hours
This time I've been super nauseous from 5 weeks (now 9 weeks). Way worse than I was with ds but thankfully, not getting sick. I usually feel better after eating in the evening but I haven't been able to eat as much during the day because food turns my stomach.

I had it starting at week 5 and lasting until week 11 or 12 both of my previous pregnancies. I'm only 7 weeks right now, so I think I have a few more weeks of it coming up.

I was never sick with DS. With DD, I was nauseated starting at about 6 weeks until about 12 weeks, but I never threw up. This time, I've been a little nauseated, starting at about 7 weeks, but still haven't thrown up.

ds1 and ds2--right around 12 weeks. Ds3--about 14. I really hope this ends sooner rather than later.

I voted "other" because with both ds and dd the full-on m/s lasted until about 15 weeks but I felt nauseated throughout the entire pregnancies. The minute I gave birth I felt great and couldn't wait to get into real food again.

dd1 - lasted about 14-15 weeks (as far as I can recall, it was 13 years ago)
ds1 - I was sick until about 14 weeks, then nauseated the whole time, still throwing up occasionally until roughly 8 months...
dd2 - until about 14 weeks
ds2 - same as first ds, sick until 15 weeks or so, throwing up every so often all the way through
dd3 - sick until 14 weeks or so, threw up once in month 7, but otherwise okay

I think this one's a boy, going by my symptoms so far. Just my own little hunch.

Last time, I threw up multiple times a day until 14 weeks, once a day until 18 weeks, and then only a few times a week until delivery.

This time, I only throw up a few times a week total. So, even though I hate being nauseous, it's much, much better. Maybe it's a girl?

With all of mine it started to let up around wk 14 and was usually gone for good by wk 16.

I'm sorry for those that have it the whole time! That is just awful!

Mine lasted the whole time but it eased off after week 12 or so (before that I would have called it hyperemesis, after that just nausea without much throwing up).

27 weeks with #1
30 week with #2

H/G both imes.. dehydration, hospitolization... erg.

So far this time I am very very dizzy and nauseus. Actuall vomiting has been limited (thankfully). But smells are even worse now then the last 2 times. I'm not eating. It's near impossible. But at least I'm not expelling it all day long either.

I've run the gambit.

#1 Mild HG - lost 14lbs, lasted until 14 weeks.
#2 Morning Sickness - lost 6lbs, lasted until 16 weeks.
#3 Moderate HG - hospitalization, strong meds, IVs galore - lost 25lbs, lasted until the day I delivered. There were some days near the end where I only vomited once or twice that day, but then the next day I'd be back to 25+ pukes.
#4 NO MORNING SICKNESS. If I was a worrier, I'd worry something was wrong. But, I'm not a worrier, I really believe the HG protocol & immediate preemptive treatment made the big difference.

For me, with #1 it was 4-12 weeks and #2 was 6-12 weeks and was very severe. Imagine my complete surprise when this time I only "got sick" once rather than daily or several times a day. It was mostly feeling queasy and some nausea. Going into 9 weeks it's already passing. I'm almost shocked. I didn't think this was possible for me. I always figured at some point it would really hit me. I guess it's not over until July though.

With dd, I felt perpetually nautious and could only eat a few random (unhealthy) things until 11 weeks. After that I was fine. This time, the same thing seems to be happening. I have probably felt a little worse this time, but it seems to be starting to ease up now, at just over ten weeks.
The nausea I have dealt with makes my heart go out for people who are dealing with it. Even if it ends after the first trimester, that is a long time to be sick!

I picked other because with my first two pregnancies (and it appears this one too), I've felt mildly queasy at most (I've never thrown up from being pregnant) in the evenings until around 11-12 weeks and then from 12 weeks to about 18-20 weeks I have several migraines a week. I'm PRAYING I don't get migraines this time, I'm hoping it's exclusively a pregnant with a girl thing (I'm thinking maybe boy this time?) but we'll see as I'll hit the 11 week mark next week. I'm doing several things different this time too that will hopefully help (vitamins, acupuncture and I'm going to add chiropractor visits to the mix).
