<p>Ladies, in anticipation of us all reaching our 2nd trimester sooner rather than later, I figured I'd start a thread for all of us to look ahead...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>-  When did your morning sickness "peak" in this pregnancy and/or any previous ones?</p>
<p>-  When did you find relief and/or are you starting to feel any better these days?</p>

<p>Last pregnancy I was very sick until halfway through the second trimester. This time I am not as sick as last time for the most part. Recently, though, I've been feeling pretty blah, so maybe it's just starting for me. </p>

<p>I started getting sick at 6 weeks. I'm 9 weeks 1 day and I still have morning sickness but only when I forget to take my B6...it has SAVED my sanity. Not sure when it'll be over and I can't remember when it ended last time. *facepalms*</p>

<p>I started feeling sick at 6 weeks.  Last week wasn't too bad at all.  Today am only 8 weeks (due 8/22) and it's my first pregnancy.  This morning I woke up dizzy which I think made me feel sick.  But, it's hard to say if that's because of congestion due to my cold or actual morning sickness.  My doctor asked me to change the time I take my prenatal and that seemed to help my nausea but I stopped taking it when this cold hit me on Friday --- all the post nasal drip is doing a number on my tummy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So far only nausea for me and less so when I keep eating.  I am hoping things don't get much worse.  Mom didn't have any M/S with either pregnancy so I'm hoping that some of that is rubbing off on me. :)</p>

<p>I also started feeling nauseous around 6 weeks with this pregnancy, but it's definitely been getting worse as the weeks go by.  I'm just over 8 weeks and from around 3 pm until 8 pm, I am nauseous and dizzy.  I'm going to have to try the B6 thing.  I did try a Newman's Own Ginger candy (looks like a lifesavers) with some success, but it only took the edge off.  With my last two pregnancies, I had little to none morning sickness, so I'm thinking this one could be a girl, since the last two were boys. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My mom also did not have any M/S with any of her 4 pregnancies, but I'm having it.  I definitely wish I took after her on this one!</p>

<p>Mine peaked at 7 or 8 weeks. It was awful! Doing much better now, I don't have to think of eating every few hours. It's nice. :)</p>
<p>I eat thinking only of blood sugar, so lots of protein and it's keeping me more stable. Very helpful.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Feeling shaky today, though, so we'll see what this brings!</p>

<p>I think mine also peaked somewhere around 7-8 weeks. I'm 11w now, and I feel SO much better. I feel like I can recognize what I need, and when I need it (which is super crucial for me!). I'm still somewhat tired, but nothing like I was a few weeks ago.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Only 2 more weeks until the 2nd trimester. I'm so excited!</p>

<p>I started getting nausea and vomiting at 6w too. It has been wretched, in the beginning I was throwing up so much that I started loosing weight, so I went on Zofran. Before taking Zofran I tried B6, ginger, eating regularly, high protein, accupressure, and nothing helped unfortunately. Zofran has helped me keep stuff down (I only throw up once a day now, right when I get out of bed) but I still have been really nauseated pretty much all the time. In the last few days I have felt much better, still a little queasy but nowhere near as bad as the last four weeks. I am HOPING that this means I am starting to feel better for good, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I am at 11w today.</p>

<br><br><p>Oh my goodness.  My heart goes out to you, sweetie!!! </p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>AFM</strong> - I think my ms peaked at 6-7 weeks.  Rather, I hope it did.  I'm 9 weeks now and have been feeling ok the past few days (better than usual).  The only thing that really truly helps is making sure I"m taking the B6 and never letting myself get too hungry.  I vomited once and vowed I would NOT let it happen again.  *knock wood* so far, so good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The end of this is in sight, ladies!!  We can do it! </p>

Nausea probably peaks for me at 9/10 weeks but doesn't completely disappear until 14/15 weeks.<br><br>
I've given up on trying to alleviate it- I just try and distract myself by reading or sleeping ( which isn't easy to do with four kiddos running around). I'm usually a hiighly energized and motivated person but I have given myself permission to ease up and just do the bare minimum.

<p>I was throwing up at 6 weeks and I still felt really nauseous till about 8 weeks. Now I only am a little bit for awhile after I wake up, other than that I've been fine. I'm 10w4d today.</p>

<p>Pregnancy #1- never had any m/s</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Pregnancy #2- m/s from weeks 7-9</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Pregnancy #3- m/s from 6 weeks-13 weeks</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Current pregnancy- m/s started at the beginning of week 6, I'm 8w2d now and it's still hanging around, but I had a few hourlong periods of relief today, which was really nice!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The best remedy for me is eating small amounts all day long. Eating fruit (apples, mainly) in the morning helps to take the edge off, and I've been on a big chicken noodle soup kick as well. If I let my stomach get too empty I'm just asking for trouble.</p>

<p>My m/s has come on earlier, gotten progressively worse and stayed longer with each pregnancy....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This time I was sick at like 7dpo..... it was my first symptom. I feel sick from the time I wake up, and then it just gets worse and worse and peaks around 3pm... by 5pm I feel great... well, until 8pm, when I'm falling asleep standing up LOL</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll be 7 weeks on Wed... so I'm hoping I'll be beginning the decent into non sickness within the next two weeks or so.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hubby and I joke that I have three modes right now. 1. OMG I am so sick, don't even look at me. 2. FEED ME NOW!. 3. Zzzzzzzz</p>

<p> </p>

<p>There were a few days around 5 and 6 weeks that I felt nauseous, but never puking or anything. Just couldn't look at certain foods. Now I'm 10 weeks and a few times since 6 weeks I've felt hungover in the evenings. Same thing happened with DD, so I'm hoping this means I'll never get full fledged morning sickness.</p>

<p>Morning sickness started at 6 weeks for me.  I had already gone to the ob to get meds though.  My last pregnancy was BAD!! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>1st-no morning sickness at all felt great the entire pregnancy</p>
<p>2nd- felt sick from about 6-8 weeks</p>
<p>3rd-sick from 6 weeks to about 12 weeks</p>
<p>4th-VERY sick from about 6 weeks-14 weeks</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This time around I have been pretty nauseous, but when I take my pills it's better.  The last few weeks though I've been having good and bad days.  Like, yesterday and today I haven't felt well at all.  But over the entire weekend I was fine.  It's annoying.  Because I think that I'm getting better then wake up feeling like crap again.  But I'm a little over 10 weeks so hopefully it will be gone for good in a few more weeks.  I'm so ready to feel better so I can get out and do things with my youngest! </p>

<p>I have been sick since 6 weeks (still sick at 10 1/2 weeks).  I keep hoping it will improve....yesterday was a horrible day, today has been better.....taking it one at at time!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have all day nausea and some vomiting.  The vomiting has stopped since my midwife started me on the B6/Unisom at around 8-9 weeks.  With my DS I had only slight queasiness, and then I would eat and feel better - nothing like this time around!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't even think about taking my PNV which always makes me worry, but I know it would just come right back up.  Might try to take them after I start feeling better which will *hopefully* be very soon!</p>

<p>psulalie: have you tried switching to a regular gummy multi-vitamin? I had to give up on my PNV at 8 weeks for the same reason as you, so I started taking the One-a-Day gummy vitamins instead. They are much better on the stomache since you're not swallowing those huge horse pills, and they have %100 of your daily Folic Acid. I am hoping to start my PNV again as soon as I start feeling better though, because they have raspberry leaf in them, which is supposed to be good for your uterus. Good luck!</p>
