Morning sickness ... whyyyyyyyyyyy??

I am 26 1/2 weeks. I vomited every morning up to about 23 weeks and then it subsided. Fantastic! I thought. Lots of people told me they'd been sick up to 5 months. That revolting stage has finally passed!

No such luck - for the last 3 mornings, I've been back to my usual violent 7.45am biley voms. My obstetrician told me that if you vomit up to 5 months, odds are you're going to vomit the whole way through.

Has anyone else had this? Why did it stop for 3 weeks (and give me false hope sad)?? It's not the end of the world, after I've been sick I feel okay for the rest of the day until the heartburn kicks in in the evening but the vomiting is quite violent, and I'm worried that, as I get bigger, my pelvic floor isn't going to handle it and I'm going to wee on the bathroom floor, sorry TMI

Pregnancy sucks!!

I had morning sickness up until 32 weeks and then it randomly stopped, only had one or two mornings after that when I'd throw up once. I'm 39 wks now, so there may be some hope yet! Though I know 4 women irl who had it the whole way through sad

Oh and yeah, I did wee myself once blush keep doing keegles!

Yep I've been there too CoolCat even though I've been doing pilates and I think my pelvic floor is in okay shape. The vomiting is just so violent!

Oh the glamour of pregnancy...

I vomit every day, until I go into labour. Some women vomit in labour, surprisingly I don't. I find that my vomiting gets worse if I haven't drunk enough, if I am constipated, if I am tired or sometimes for no reason at all!

Haha Dino I read that as

I find that my vomiting gets worse if I'm not drunk enough

CoolCat2014 Thu 28-Aug-14 06:07:59

Haha... getting drunk is the solution then?

Gennz - did you get projectile vomiting? I did many days, out of the blue. No one warned me about that blush

Mine stopped at about 22 weeks, but then started up again at 24 weeks... It's not as bad now though (27w1d)... I don't think it's actually the hormones making me sick now, I think it's the growing pressure on my stomach from my expanding uterus.

gennz, actually LOLing here! Perhaps I need to try that! grin

Something I forgot last night to say was that treatment for indigestion (I'm on omeprazole) has tranformed my vomiting. I didn't think my indigestion was that bad, but it must have been worse than I realised given how much better I am on it.

You has my full sympathy, mine went at about 16 weeks but is now back (27w). So far I just feel sick as a dog from lunch time onwards and can't eat much, no actual sick hmm . With my first 4 pregnancies I only ever had it till 11 ish weeks.

I'm still chundering at 39+5 sorry sadsad
I did have the odd week here and there where I wouldn't even feel nauseous and then bam!! Back to being sick 10 times a day.
