Hi ladies,<br><br>
I'm just wondering what's going on with my body. Last week on Wednesday (6w2d), I had a day of diarrhea coinciding with several days of nausea. I threw up once on the first day, which was the most intense/exhausting. I had been feeling fine up until that point, but I started thinking "oh boy, here it comes, I'm in for a few weeks of yuck." But then it stopped, and I've been all-clear since Saturday night.<br><br>
So I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping it was just a bug (we ate at $%#@ Olive Garden the night before it all started, and husband had diarrhea too), but wondering if anyone can share experiences - does your MS give you days of relief at a time, or is it pretty consistently a daily affair once it kicks in? It's driving me nuts trying to plan my work schedule, wondering if I should keep things low key in case it comes back, or if I can just plow ahead. Plus I've read things like "report loss of pregnancy symptoms to your midwife," but then again my boobs are still like rocks.<br><br>
thanks!

My symptoms come and go, helen. Some days, I feel awful, other days, I feel pretty good. My boobs stopped hurting like crazy about a week ago, but I'm not too worried. I think it's normal for your body to get used to the level of hormone for a bit, and then have symptoms again when the levels increase.

I haven't had days of peace yet, but I've had a few hours at a time where I'm not throwing up. Hopefully you'll luck out and not get too sick, I didn't with my DS. This time, however, I think my stomach hates me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Korin, thanks for sharing. I think it's amazing how differently our bodies react to what is essentially the same process. I'm not really worried about lack of symptoms, in fact I'm crossing my fingers that the barf stays away!

Amazing how different each pregnancy can be for the body. I really hope you feel better soon! I've heard a "more nausea with girls" theory, but I'm sure there are plenty of people who can anecdotally contradict that.

I know my nausea usually fades for the day around 3 or 4 p.m. - but some days are better than others too...I think w/ the m/s there are other contibuting factors like your blood sugar, how much you've been able to keep down, activity level - that can affect things sometimes. Mine is bad & I'm 6 weeks (& 3 days iirc?) Last time it didn't start till 8 weeks & wasn't as bad as this.<br><br>
Hope yours is on it's way out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

CaraboosMama: I hope you feel better soon! I guess what I'm learning is that everyone's body is different, even from pregnancy to pregnancy. So interesting. I am constantly feeding myself little meals, so maybe that is helping keep it from flaring up too badly.<br><br>
Your username makes me grin because my younger sister Cara was always called Caraboo too.
