Bleurgh. Not sickness, just bleurgh.

Posting here as I don't really know what to search for in the archives...

I'm 7w pg and luckily so far have no ms and little nausea.

However, I'm rapidly going off ALL food after 5pm...the concept of any dinner makes me want to yak and eating my evening meal is like an uphill struggle.

Dinner which sounds acceptable in my head at midday is just sickening when it's served at seven.

Have any of you had this and if so how long did it last and how did you manage to not wake at 2am ravenous for chocolate?

Both pregnancies (im not 14+6) I felt exactly the same at around 7weeks, lasted until about 9-10weeks. I was eating constantly in the morning and lunchtime though so really wasn't worried about the calorie intake - if you can't stomach anything then don't force yourself, try and eat good stuff when you can (good hearty breakfast, decent lunch and snacks).

Can you eat crackers? A glass of milk? Or fruit? Don't think of trying to have a meal just think of putting anything (ok, haribo doesn't count!!) into your stomach for the intake. Toast and butter.
Are you waking at 2pm hungry? Take some crackers/biscuits to bed - surely one or two will be enough to stop the grumbly tummy to fall back to sleep. It won't last - i now can't stop eating any time of day, I'm eating more than my first pregnacy, growing an elephant I'm sure.

I'm about the same as you OP (7-8 wks right now) and I'm thinking longingly about dinner at midday but do not want it come dinner time or only want a wee bit. I get full really, really fast so am finding eating smaller things throughout the day better. I've not been sick either but do often feel yucky and quite nauseous.

I'm managing not to wake ravenous for chocolate at 2am by sitting on my arse eating wee bits of chocolate right now grin TMI but I've had a -ahem- bowel movement since dinner so that might be helping.

Same! I'm 10 weeks tomorrow and for the last couple of weeks I've wanted food but then as soon as it's served I go off it. If it helps I've found cold food easier to stomach than hot, think the smell was really off-putting.

If the thought of dinner makes you want to yak I would say that's definite MS!

I feel like this all day some days. Today it's only been since about 3pm.

When I feel like this I eat anything that I think I can keep down as if I skip a meal I feel worse. Some days I can only eat bread and butter and can only drink fizzy water.

Tonight for dinner I had boiled baby potatoes with a little butter, and an ice lolly as it's all I could manage. I did have a good breakfast and lots of salad at lunch, plus fruit for snacks, so overall it was an ok day.

Basically just try to eat whatever you can when you feel like that and hopefully it eases for you soon.

Simple carbs are usually good - toast etc. You might find eating a little really calms the nausea. Take care xx

Yep no MS but on and off all day "yuckness" sort of queasy, hungry but can't face food...

How is that not MS?

I felt the same with my DS and am currently 8 weeks and experiencing this again. Find am usually better if I do actually eat something, even if I don't want to. And yes it's often toast. I recall it eased off about 9 weeks last time so I'm hoping for the same again!

Good to know I'm not alone! I've just polished off scrambled eggs, two satsumas, a banana and a glass of prune juice hmm

If someone asked me to eat that lot post 5pm I'd be gagging x

Laura2507 Tue 07-Mar-17 07:19:25

I've had this since 6w. I'm now 17w and still struggling. Had severe sickness too.

Things I can eat... tinned ravioli, cottage pie and gravy, toast, sandwiches, some salt and vinegar crisps, quiche.

Tile it's funny, what do people define as morning sickness? For me there's three levels;

Actual sickness
Nausea ("I'm gonna hurl!")
Bleurgh ("I'm at amber level risk of puking but it's more gaggy than pukey)

Hope you've all finished your breakfasts 😐

If you look on the NHS website, morning sickness is nausea and may occur with or without vomiting.

I'm the same (22 weeks) - cant stop eating until 5pm, then after that im not interested in food & would really rather just go to bed!
