Apologies in advance for the miami content of this post but I am sooooo fed up.
I have been sick now for 2 weeks straight and I am 7+4 weeks pregnant and I cannot tell you how ridiculously tired and emotional I am...(i can't tell you but im sure you all know full well how I feel!) I feel sick constantly the thought of food makes me gag and I really want to know when this is likely to end? When did symptoms start to ease for you?
I never had sickness but I did have a sicky feeling at the start, I didn't want to eat and to be honest I'm 20 weeks now and I still don't want to eat, nothing I cook I seem to like. I't does get better the sickness I felt better after 12 weeks and sometimes I forget I'm pregnant.
Mine has never gone- am now 29 weeks. I used to get really frustrated as people would say it'll ease at 12 weeks, then 16, then 20 and finally at 22 weeks they said it was probably here to stay. For everyone it's different.
Im 7+6 and feeling the same way, constant nausea and dizziness, mostly living on crackers and toast, cant bear to cook or eat any of the things i used to love. praying it will end soon. In the mean time I have found that sour sweets (preggie pop drops) or those atomic fireball sweets help. I also find eating before i get out of bed stops me from vomiting first thing, then eating something every couple of hours helps. Im drinking Ginger tea like its going out of fashion but not really sure if it works. I have just received a morning sickness relief tens machine type thing which im hoping will be a miracle cure!
You poor thing, I have just been through the same and really feel for you. I am 12 weeks now and just had a whole day without feeling sick, joyous! It is an awful time but try to take heart in the knowledge that it will come to an end. One of the things that really helped me in the worst weeks was lucozade. I read about it on here and it really was a lifesaver. I still have a six pack in my cupboard just in case. Hope you feel better soon :-)
First trimester was all sickness then it magically cleared up for the 2nd. I also stopped feeling like I had a months' long case of flu. Clearly we are all different little snowflakes but if it helps to have a goal try setting your sights on that second trimester.
I can totally sympathise. With ds I was physically sick every day until 20 ish weeks, felt exhausted and drained every single day. With current pregnancy I had horrendous nausea but only a little vomiting until About 15 weeks, then the sickness kicked in and one minute id be fine, the next I'd be running for the loo/sink/bucket whichever was nearest. It'd come on so suddenly I'd literally have seconds to find somewhere. But as soon as id been ill, I felt fine again so this phase trumped the nausea hands down! What got me through the early weeks were bread sticks, dry toast and water. I don't think I ate much else between 6-12 weeks in both pregnancies. It will eventually come to an end, but that ending point seems to be so different for everyone. Take care x
I was sick this morning and am nearly 39 weeks!! I was sick every day up til about 28 weeks. However, I do remember weeks 9 and 10 being the absolute worst, just feeling so tired/shattered/nauseous all the time. I think it eased up about week 11 (though I kept up my daily puke obviously long after that - fingers crossed you're not as unlucky!!)
