For the past two days, after eating a meal I feel like seriously throwing up.<br>
Is this typical? I'm almost 36 weeks. Anyone else experience this?

That baby of yours may just be crowding out your stomach so there's less room in there, causing you to feel nauseous after a meal. Try eating small, frequent meals instead if you can.<br><br>
It really sucks that once you're in the home stretch, and you're good and hungry, you can only eat little bits at a time.<br><br>
peace, Beth

Mamaley...I TOTALLY hear you...every time I eat lately I have experienced nausea to the point of gagging.....I thought it strange and the thought crossed my mind as to why I feel like I have morning sickness again and I'm 2 1/2 weeks from giving birth. Since our lungs are crowded, it makes sense the stomach is too.<br><br>
I haven't been eating as much in one sitting and it does help a little.

Not badly enough that I want to throw up, but yes. I'll get waves of nausia that I have to sit in front of a fan to make it go away (moving air helps SO much)... And when I eat I think Orion likes to bat at my stomach! :LOL Because I frequently feel 'squished' after I eat, and he's usually wiggling around a lot at that time too... I try to eat little meals, it does help, but with all the unpacking, I forget to eat until I'm *starving*...

Mamely - a woman I work with had this all through her thrid trimester - really bad too. Not just nausear but vomiting all the time. Also, at each appointment my m/w asks me if I've had any nausea. I finally asked about that and she told me many women have "morning sickness" like symptoms in the thrid trimester.

Just wanted to say yes, I have it too. My nausea never completely went away, but I've noticed I've had a lot more serious nausea/ occasional vomiting since the baby got significantly larger. I'm about 33 weeks.<br><br>
At least I know it can't last much longer... I'm just concerned that my appetite is way off when I know I should be eating a good deal right now. I don't even want one small meal, much less 5!

Yup, once it showed up in the beginning of pregnancy, my morning sickness was with me until I gave birth (except for one glorious two-day period in the third trimester).<br><br>
I was so tired of it by the end that I finally called and demanded a presription for anti-nausea meds.... and went into labor before I even got them! :LOL<br><br>
Of course, none of this stopped me from gaining a zillion pounds <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

After reading all these experiences I feel kind of bad for saying I had morning sickness in the 3rd tri, because I've just experienced a little nausea here and there--not real morning sickness!! That would be horrible.

I am almost 39 weeks and still have the morning sickness - I take diclectin (combination B vitamin with a mild antihistamine) every night before bed... My nausea has worsened in the past couple of weeks - I think, as others have written, it is because baby is so much bigger.<br><br>
Just try and eat little meals frequently - take care<br><br>

Mine has never gone away. I started meds at 7 weeks, got re-hydrated w/ IV at 10 and stayed on a daily Zofran until about 22 weeks. Since then I've gotten sick once every week or two and a couple of weeks ago felt like I was back in the first tri. Tossed breakfast 3x in one week and called in sick one day because I couldn't keep anything down for a while. I was afraid that would persist, but it got better. I have gotten sick a couple of times first thing in the am this past week, but I have a cough and think my reflex for getting sick is just waaay more sensitive then before pg.<br><br>
So, long story short, I agree that limited space is probably your biggest issue, but also (personally) the nausea reflex is just heightened in pregnancy.<br><br>
I hope that this doesn't persist... and really, it won't last longer than the pregnancy!<br><br>

I totally feel for you. I had "morning" sickness right up until my water broke. I grazed all day, never eating a full meal and that kept me from visiting the porcelain goddess too often.

i didn't have 3rd trimester m/s with dd at all, but have had it this time. mostly, its just EXTREME hunger in the morning. my tummy is very empty when i wake up (despite eating some yogurt before bed)...and i'm sure if i ate something besides plain cereal or toast, i would feel very queezy.
