Anyone else? I start getting (more) tired around 2-3 pm and even if I take a nap, I feel lousy(er) in the afternoon to night. I know I get more nauseated when I am tired.<br><br>
Around 8-9pm I finally give up and go to bed, where I lie in agony for about 45 minutes before I fall asleep. Sometimes I get someone to rub me as that helps me relax.<br><br>
I wake up every 1-2 hours after that to go to the bathroom and I feel lousy. I am sick all night and in misery.<br><br>
I start to feel better around 3-4am, but that's when I start getting hungry too. I drink a Boost protein shake then to help me not feel really sick when I get up.<br><br>
I actually feel SO much better in the morning than at night!!! It doesn't last long though. Maybe 30 minutes. *sigh*

Yes Yes and Yes. I'm about 3 weeks ahead of you, and 2-3 weeks ago I could've written that post. I found that eating something right before I laid down actually helped me (yogurt was the thing for me), it seemed to hold off the 4am starvation and settle my tummy long enough to let me get to sleep.<br><br>
The good news is, I am falling asleep more easily now and usually only waking 2, maybe 3 times to pee. The mid-afternoon hours are still pretty rough, but not nearly as bad as they were. Hang in there! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Me too - although I'm about a month ahead and am now sleeping through the night many nights. Before I was waking up 2x per night and feeling sick and having to pee. Still start to feel lousy around 2-3 pm and am going to bed around 8 or 9. I don't get to take a nap because my son gave them up around 6 months ago, so we've been watching lots of DVDs, which we normally don't do. I've gotten so I can't eat a real dinner 'cause I feel so icky.

Well, at the height of my morning sickness, it was all day, 24 hours a day, but when it started easing up, I noticed it was the worst first thing when I woke up (from not eating all night) and in the evening when I was tired. Now it's pretty much gone, thank goodness!

With all four pf my pregnancies now I am ALWAYS sicker in the late afternoon and thru the evening.....I hate it!!! I guess I would hate it either time of day but its horrible too when you have errands to run with dh and the children and your riding around feeling like you are going to get sick....I will be glad when the 2nd trimester starts for me....

Yeah, by mid afternoon I start to droop significantly, can't decide if I need to nap or eat, usually can't do either because I'm at work and have no food. I perk up a bit when I go home because I get some calories and we spend time in the yard since it's been nice out and I find fresh air is always helpful for the nauseous blahs. But by later in the evening it's back to being blah.<br><br>
Oh, and don't get me started about having to pee at night. I have to, but I also have to sneak out of bed without waking up DD which is nigh impossible so I usually only go once.

Was definatley sicker in the evenings. I would also just put myself to bed, what was the point of stayiing awake ill? It would usually start just in time for dinner, around 5 or 6, so I just made sure to eat early in the day. And, I'd hate to jinx myself, but I think ms is gone...

Mine really varies. I haven't been sick sick yet...just ultra gaggy. As soon as I'm gaggy I need somethign to eat whether it be a piece of fruit, some veggies or an all bran bar (it's all about the poop...LOL) Within minutes...I'm okay again. Good idea about the protein shakes though...I should pick some up....

Oh you don't know HOW much I needed to hear this. I am just barely hanging on at this point! I am at my wits end.

I'm sick almost all day right now too, but its much worse in the morning in my case. That's when I do all my puking. The rest of the day I swing from extreme fatigue to extreme nausea.<br><br>
Today wasn't too bad. When I woke up, I made sure I ate some fruit (one of the only things I can eat!) and didn't sit up too fast. Seabands help a bit with the worst nausea. I haven't taken these damn things off in days, because the minute I do, I feel the ship starting to spin!<br><br>
I also try to force myself outside even when I feel like puking. It helps a little bit to get out of the house and my head. Anxiety seems to make the ms worse.<br><br>
Hugs to all of us...it will get better soon! They say ms PEAKS at 8 weeks! Please someone say this is true!!

OMG peaks at 8 weeks! If I could get back down to what I was going through even 3 weeks ago, I would be SO happy. I could handle that. THIS is awful.<br><br>
STILL so much better than my other three! I don't know how I lived thru that. I knew this pregnancy would be better, but I guess I was too delusional and didn't realize how tough it would still be.

Absolutely! I had to cut down my hours at work because I HAD to nap at 2pm or else I'd fall asleep at work... *laughs* Then I get really sick in early evenings though it's just nausea and not vomiting for the most part. It's a pain in the rear!

Add me to the night sick crew. I'm twelve weeks along and sick at night. I've tried everything and it seems some things work sometimes and then stop working.<br><br>
Right now I'm on Morning Sickness Magic (B6, rasberry leaf, ginger) and hopefully that is helping.<br><br>
People keep telling me it gets better but this is my first and I'm having a hard time believing i yet...
