<p>I am 12.1 weeks, and this morning I brushed my teeth and BAM...out came my breakfast.   Last time I actually vomited was around 8 weeks, and I thought things were supposed to get better.  Also for the past few evenings I have felt pretty crummy as well.  Has this happened to anyone else?  Should I be worried?</p>

<p>This has happened to me in the past few days. I have to brush my teeth really fast or I gag and my food aversions are worse. Good to hear I'm not the only one.</p>

<p>With DD I threw up once a day consistently for a month starting around week 12.  I actually felt ok most of the time - it was just that one morning event every day :)  It helped when I brushed before breakfast, so it felt even more minor.</p>

<p>I'm a little over 11 weeks and have felt worse the past few days.  Well, today, I'm a little better.  I'm thinking this might be my last huge hormone rise and things should level off soon.  I have been gagging like crazy and my food aversions seem worse.  I don't know about any else, but I am SO OVER this 1st trimester!!!  Please just feel better already so I can start to enjoy this pregnancy and get my life back!!!</p>

<p>Good to know others are having a last morning sickness surge - I was starting (well - continuing <span><img alt="redface.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span> ) to worry about it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had a pretty smooth week 10, but week 11's been rough so far...</p>

<p>I'm so sorry you guys are still feeling so awful -- or worse!  I really really hope that things ease up soon for all of you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am only 9 weeks (a little behind most of you) and you are totally freaking me out.  My fingers are crossed that I don't have to join you in this thread in a couple weeks! </p>

<p>I just read an article that said that HCG levels can peak between 9 and 12 weeks.  So, maybe you guys are late peakers?  I hope that means that in a matter of days you'll be feeling much better. </p>

Hm...maybe that's it!  I know that my own hormone levels are screwy (hence my IVF), and as of now, the placenta is supposed to be producing most of them.  So maybe that's it?  The placenta doing a better job than my screwy endocrine system...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Or, it's a girl!  Ha ha...I don't believe that one at all.</p>

Yesterday was by far the worst day yet. Nothing sounded good to eat, felt nauseous, exhausted and not even a moment of reprieve. I thought I was 10 w 4d but my u/s today showed I'm closer to 12 weeks. Today, while not completely better, was so much better than yesterday even with the constant nausea. Here's hoping we're all in the final stretch of m/s!

<p>I hit 12 weeks today and it has not been a very nice day!</p>
<p>Not sure if it's because I screwed up my food (boy, I've eaten badly today!) or if the eating was part of the drama but ugh! Ugh, I say!</p>

Dislike!!! That's so not cool. I'm still holding out hope that I'll magically feel better in 2 weeks, regardless! Lol!

<p>My gag reflex is always off the charts during my whole pregnancy, even after most of my morning sickness is better. Brushing my teeth is an exercise in caution and I may or may not skip a few days and just use a lot of mouthwash.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Maybe something to consider?</p>

Ok, good to know I'm not crazy! My week 10 I felt really good, enough that I was really, intensely worried. Then week 11 I started to feel pretty gross again, and I think it's morphed into less of an all-day experience and more of an intense shorter nausea. I've had moments while teaching where I had to stop and take deep breaths and hope I didn't puke right then and there, all of a sudden. My gag reflex is definitely strong, and I've dry-heaved (sorry, tmi) while brushing my teeth several times this week. I'm wondering if this has something to do with my stomach adjusting to the shrinking space it has in my gut. Does that make sense? Anyway, my sister said she started throwing up at 12 weeks and her nausea finally went away around 14 weeks, so maybe 14 weeks is my new magic number...<img alt="upsidedown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/upsidedown.gif">

<p>With my last pregnancy my morning sickness didn't go away until 14 weeks.  I'm 12 weeks today and not feeling so great.  So we'll see how the week goes.  I didn't sleep well at all last night and that usually messes me up for the whole day.  My youngest fell out of her bed last night at about 1:30am and it took me forever to fall back to sleep.  And then I kept waking up every hour or so until 7:30am, when I finally gave up.  Ugh!</p>

<p>The all day nausea has seemed to subside, but the nausea at night has gotten a lot worse in the past few days. I'll be twelve weeks tomorrow. No actual vomit yet, but boy can I dry heave.</p>

<p>I've not had any issues with morning sickness with any pregnancy... until now. Last week I threw up a few times. Last night I threw up a few times. Right now I can feel it brewing in my belly. <span><img alt="puke.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/puke.gif">  This sucks!</span></p>

<p>You guys are starting to scare me.  I suffered from hyperemesis during my other pregnancies.  This time I've had nothing more than some random, mild nausea.  I was starting to relax and think that maybe mother nature was cutting me some slack for my last pregnancy.  Now I'm nervous wondering if it just hasn't really hit yet.  I have had a few really icky moments this week.  I am 10 weeks today.</p>

<p>Hate to scare you, but good to know that others are suffering with me ;)</p>
<p>This is what I get for saying that everything would be better starting yesterday! Blech.</p>
<p>Still nauseated after eating, if not halfway through eating. Which makes it hard to eat.</p>

Oh I'm glad to read this!  <span><img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif">  I realized tonight that we didn't talk this weekend and I was thinking of you.  I'm glad you haven't puked in front of your class yet...that would put the secret out in the open, yes?  Keep that trash can nearby...  I remember that's how it was for me too--all day nausea through 12 weeks, then more puking than before, but periods of not feeling sick each day (heaven).  Finally felt better at 14 weeks as you said.  I want to see your belly...  (it's starting to feel really real for me that you are pregnant...I'm starting to count on it without being (as) scared...it's so exciting!!!)</span></p>
