Hi

Everyone I was wondering if its normal for morning
Sickness to come and go?

Mine was bad until 16 weeks. I still get days when I feel awful - now 22 weeks - but it's more bearable now.

I had it through to 20 weeks, although the number of times I was sick reduced significantly at about 16 weeks from around one to three times a day to roughly three times a week. Was fine from 20 weeks to 29 weeks, but now it's back sad. So, from personal experience, I'd say it can come and go.

I hope so - I'm 11 weeks and had a day last week when it went, then came back and then another day this week that wasn't so bad. But I convinced myself I had a missed MC! I really can't get over how neurotic I've become in pregnancy - I'm normally not a worrier!

It was for me. I had some days when felt sick all day and then others when I felt like I was not PG at all. It really worried me at first as was concerned my symptoms had gone and the worst had happened but when I googled this I found many women said this also happened to them so I think it is reasonably common for this to happen.

God, pregnancy and sickness is so rubbish and worrying isn't it? Being very sick at the moment and wishing I wasn't, but then I know if I woke up tomorrow feeling better I'd be really worried.

I do think there are lots of different experiences of morning (!) sickness, including it coming and going. Unless you have other symptoms that are worrying you, I wouldn't be overly concerned. It's difficult but we have to learn to just go with the flow and what will be will be. Are you waiting to have a scan? I'm sure once you do it will all be fine and you might feel a bit more confident?

I do feel for you, early pregnancy is an uncertain time, just try to relax, and please help me take my own advice as well!

Mine did so I assume so! It was the first sign of it starting to clear up for me - I'd have good and bad days, rather than one endless stream of misery.

I've been for a scan the day and there was a healthy heartbeat
I'm feeling sick and weak at the min

I had it pretty constantly until 12 weeks, then a bit less in intensity until 14 weeks. Now I'm getting the odd day or moment of it (at 16w)
