I quit taking my prenatals last week to see if it would help the constant nausea and it did lessen it, but I'm still so sensitive to smells (tonight wheat bread set me off and I dry heaved for a good couple mins). SO over it. I've tried pretty much everything to get rid of the nausea.. I'm 13 weeks now and thought for sure it would be gone by now. And to top it off I'm still so exhausted all the time. My last 2 pregnancies were nothing like this!

I am 16 weeks tomorrow and I had to pull over today, dry heaving on the side of the road. It has eased up some, but I was hoping to feel like a new woman by now.

I'm 16w5d, and I'm right there with you. Sick, nauseous, exhausted. Still taking Zofran, and still throwing up at least once a week on it. (much better than 7 x's a day.) But, the bright note is I'm starting to feel like my bump is cute and not just extended flab.

I'm still sick as well, and I'll be 14 weeks Monday. Maybe it's the heat.

13 weeks and still sick as well. With DD it lasted until about 16/17 weeks so I'm prepared to still have another 4 weeks of this. I'm only throwing up once every couple of days now, I'm just constantly nauseated and still going to bed at 8:30 ...

I threw up yesterday morning and I'm 15 weeks today. I'm totally annoyed too, since my pregnancy with DS was only 3 weeks of nausea! This one's going on 8 weeks now

Me too, but my m/s didn't stop until 20w with ds and 18w with dd, so I don't expect it to go away quite yet.

Same here I DO think/hope? mine's "easing up" a bit - but not gone. I also had the STRONG sense of smell w/my first, but only "moments" of nausea. I KNEW I was lucky...NOT this time It's seriously every day - and has been most of the day/every day. I don't actually get sick/just nautious all day Also HARD to think about good nutrition when so little sounds good... I'm a HUGE coffee lover normally and switched to decaf right away (as I did w/my 1st.) - but this time I drank it for a few days and that was it - just the thought of it made me ill SO NOT FUNNY ;{ It definitely wears on you when you're trying to do other stuff and TRYING to be happy about being pregnant and birth worries, etc. if you're a "risk" - I have a T incision and am planning a homebirth so lots of research, etc. I've felt guilty that I've been "down" almost the whole two months we've known ;( You're not alone - feeling sick MOST of the time IS HARD ;(
Here's hoping we ALL FEEL BETTER SOON!!!!

Kimrose, my doula had a inverted T and had a successful, natural VBAC (though in the hospital) just a year ago. I'm sure she'd be glad to answer any questions you have!

i'm hanging in there too mamas... feeling better for sure, but still dry heaving daily, and vomiting every few days. but to be honest, i'm so grateful that it's not like it was in week 9-11, for me week 13 is utter relief, even if there's still the dry-heaving and occasional vomit. so weird to say that, but true! i'm hoping in a couple more weeks i can be off my bizarre diet of sandwiches and potatoes...i miss my other way of life! i do see hope, i've eaten a few nuts yesterday and today without them making me sick, and that was also a staple "before".

wishing us all much relief now!!!

I'm 13 weeks and had some mild improvement this week but yeah, I'm still sick too. Hugs to you mamas who are further along and still suffering so much. I know it's rough.
