<p>I'm almost 12 weeks, and a couple days ago I took my sea bands off and didn't feel like I needed to put them back on.  In the last two days I have eaten better than I have in weeks.  I still get waves of queasy-ness here and there, but overall I have noticed just in the last two to three days I am really starting to feel better.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And I must confess, while I know it's pretty normal since I'm nearly 12 weeks, I really liked being sick because it reassured me. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, anyone else starting to move into the days of feeling better and being able to eat?</p>

<p>No. :(</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm on 9+ Diclectin a day and a few days in a row I skipped my night dose with no negative repercussions so I tried also skipping a morning dose... and spent the entire day throwing up everything from my $30 sushi lunch to a glass of water (which I drank while trying to take my Diclectin!!). It was past 10pm before I kept a thing down. If I miss a dose or I'm late on a daytime dose that's pretty much my experience regardless of what I eat or how often I eat it.</p>

<p>no I'm not yet and I'm almost 13 weeks. Well, I feel a little better somedays but I cannot wait for it to go away. I think I remember it going away closer to 13 weeks with my others so I'm crossing my fingers that any day now I will wake up and it will be gone.</p>

I have been slowly starting to feel better since about 13 weeks. I'm 15 weeks now and feel almost normal.

<p>Well, crud...I don't like being the only one that's starting to feel better, that doesn't do good for my anxiety!  I'm sorry you guys are still feeling bad.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I still have small moments where a smell will make me kind of queasy and my gag reflex is still really sensitive, so I guess that is good!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I rented a doppler for my last pregnancy because of my previous losses, and I'm trying really hard not to do that this time around.  This is the toughest stage where you go so long between appointments and can't feel movement yet.  Although I keep thinking I may be feeling movement, but I'm not 100% sure.</p>

<p>I feel much better! <img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif"> It's only been for about two weeks (I'll be 14w on Friday) and gradually at that but I don't feel terrible every moment of every day and, while I'm still tired, it's not the same kind of devastating, overwhelming exhaustion I was going through. I still feel very sensitive about what I eat and smell, my back and hips ache and I'm not tip top but man, I do feel better.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm so sorry for all of you lovely mamas who are still struggling <img alt="hug2.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/hug2.gif"></p>

<p>Oh I think its totally normal that you're feeling better. I know that its hard when you have had previous losses though. I feel like I'm always looking for something to go wrong.  A few more weeks and hopefully we will start to feel movement right?  I don't think I'll feel better until I get to that point.</p>

<p>I'm 11w5d and feeling better, but this has been a much more mild first trimester than I had with my daughter. I had days of nausea here and there, or hours of it really, but I found that this time as long as I was stuffing my face constantly, I could keep the nausea at bay. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>It feels strange to feel "good" right now, I've got slightly more energy and don't feel nauseous at all (as long as I'm eating regularly) and no real hip/ligament pain this time around either (at 12/13 weeks with my daughter I was REALLY feeling like I needed to start yoga. so much different & easier this time!) so it's slightly worrisome, but i know each pregnancy is different so i'm trying to just accept this one as it is and tell myself that everything is fine. </p>

<p>I'm 14w3d and my morning sickness has been better for about two weeks, but on Monday night I was in the hospital overnight with food poisoning/dehydration (ugh) which was kind of like a little taste of morning sickness again. At first I thought it <em>was</em> M/S, and I took a couple diclectin, but I couldn't even keep the diclectin and water down.</p>
<p>Good luck to all of you still feeling it! It will pass, but until it does, most of the rest of us understand what you're going through, and know how hard and exhausting it is.</p>
<p>Take care mamas!</p>

<p>I'm 11 and a half weeks and have had all day sickness since pretty much right after I found out at 4 weeks. I never actually got sick. It's just been the constant feeling like I'm about to regardless of whether I had food in my system or not. Just within the past week it has eased up a bit. As long as I keep something in my stomach I feel alright. Just within the past couple days I have noticed that even if I do let myself get hungry I don't get crazy sick to my stomach. It's much more tolerable. And like you I've been able to eat much better! I'm a foodie so I've really missed enjoying food! ;) I've got a nice little belly starting so even though the nausea is going away I've got my little belly that certainly makes me feel pregnant. (This is #3.) That and I heard the heartbeat for the first time on Monday! There really is a little circus peanut in there!</p>

<p>Thanks guys!  I know, I try so hard not to worry but I always find something to worry about.  I do seem to feel better if I am constantly eating, I noticed today on the way back from picking up my son that I was a little queasy and it had been an hour or two since I had eaten something.  So I guess it's not completely gone!  Just better.  I do have a little more energy too, which is nice.  I cleaned the bathrooms yesterday!!!  Shocker!!  LOL!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Melanie, yes...I am so looking forward to eating good food again.  For some reason I can only tolerate crap food at the beginning of my pregnancies, it's been the same each time.  I hate McDonalds, but I ate there at least once a week the past few weeks!  I have barely cooked in the past month because I can't stand the thought of anything I'm used to cooking.  Just yesterday I finally ate a big green salad with lots of veggies and homemade brown mustard, maple syrup, and lemon juice based dressing.  It was so good, my body needs good food again!</p>

<p>I'm almost 14 weeks and I am just starting to feel better in fits and starts.  Some days are better than others, some hours are better than others, but overall I am doing better now than I was 2 weeks ago.  I am still on the Zofran though, and I will know that things are looking up when I don't need to take it anymore.  Definitely not ready to clean bathrooms yet, but I did give my kids a bath tonight for the first time in many weeks!  (DH has been doing it while I've been sick).</p>

<p>When I said I cleaned the bathrooms, I should clarify all I really did was clean the toilets.  And we only have two toilets, so it wasn't a huge accomplishment.  LOL!  More than I have done in the last 6 weeks, though!</p>

<p>Mine started at 7 weeks went away at 10 weeks, but I really only had slight waves of nausea if I went too long between eating or if I was very tired mainly in the evening. I do feel for those of you that suffered and are still suffering.</p>
