Does morning sickness get worse with each pregnancy

Found out we are expecting DC3 yesterday, I think I am approx 5.5 weeks maybe a little more. HCG is pretty high according to docs as they have tested it today due to some light bleeding. I am massively panicking (already) about morning sickness although currently have none.

DC1 - moderately ill from 6-8 weeks, vomited a bit but mostly OK and manageable
DC2 - really felt terrible from 6-14 weeks, vomited a lot, nausea 24hrs a day, needed medication at the 'peak' and frequent migraines

I am worried DC3 is only going to be worse, has anyone experienced less sickness 2nd or 3rd (or 4th!) time around? Please tell me it's possible....this baby was not actually planned and one of the huge contributing factors to that decision was how ill I felt so I am pretty much dreading it now! Sure I will get through but today I am feeling a bit scared!

Dc1 and dc2 vomiting from weeks 4 to 41.
Dc3 started at week 6 and its not everyday but have different horrible symptoms this time that I didn't have last time. Vomiting and nausea has eased a bit in the past week I'm 12 weeks this week. Every pregnancy is unique hopefully you will be fine this time

It did for me I'm afraid. Fingers crossed it won't be the same for you.

With my daughter I was sick from weeks 7 to the end, it was horrible. I'm 9 weeks pregnant now, and feel nauseous if my stomach is empty, but nowhere near as bad. I think every pregnancy is different flowers

My 2nd pregnancy was the best followed by 1st, 3rd was awful.

arggghhhhh! Just got to get through it and start my vitamin B tablets I guess.

I was nauseous all the time and vomited every morning with DC1 from 7-13 weeks, and nauseous occasionally with vomiting at least once a week for a further 5 or 6 weeks.
Daily vomiting and constant nausea from 7-12 weeks with DC2, then felt totally fine, so a definite improvement!
I hope it'll be the same for you!

No, I was only really sick when I carried girls. Hardly sick with my boys.

I had no sickness at all with my second and third pregnancies, only with my first! I put it down to him being a boy!

No, I think it's the luck of the draw. Although if you have hyperemesis then I think you get it every time.

100% did for me.

DS1 - from 7-12wks
DD2 - from 7-15wks
Straight to sickness and nausea at the same time.

DS3 - from 6wks and hasn't stopped, I'm 36wks now.
I've been on antisickness tablets since just after Christmas which have helped massively but I still get nauseous. If I forget to take one then I will be sick. But I have been sick a few times even with taking them!

I remember reading something Patrick Holford wrote about it being due to essential nutrients being depleted each pregnancy & not replaced. He has a protocol for MS that might be worth a look.

I was very nauseous when pregnant with my only boy, heartburn worse with the girls.
Congratulations flowers

First two pregnancies with girls I had sickness,second one terrible. This one I'm 12 weeks and had little bits of nausea but no sickness at all xx

Had none with first pregnancy but constant nausea and some sickness with this one.

Ginger nuts and cinnamon sweets are my friend.

Pregnancy 1 DD - very sick from 8-9 weeks up until around 14 weeks. Although it was only a short time I was physically sick as oppose to just nausea and lost weight as a result.

Pregnancy 2 DD & 3 DS - nauseous from 6 weeks until around 16 weeks, didn't vomit anywhere near as much, much milder symptoms.

Pregnancy 4 DS - nausea kicked in around 6 weeks and lasted up to 24 weeks, and still had waves of nausea every now and then after that. Again wasn't physically sick as much but the nausea was really strong for the most part.

I don't think I did anything different with each pregnancy so I suppose it's down to luck.

With DC1 and DC2 my sickness was awful. Constant, all day type thing.

DC3 wasn't quite as bad.

Now I'm 12 weeks pregnant with DC4 and the sickness has been very mild. It probably started from about week 8 this time and I haven't been sick every day. With my other pregnancies the sickness started around week 5 or 6.

So for me it's kind of gone the other way!

Dc1, constant non relenting nausea from week 5-13, lots of retching but no vomiting.

Currently 9+4 with DC2 and currently in the same boat, started around 5 weeks, hasn't let up yet. No actual vomiting but the nausea is horrendous. I had to sit on the kitchen floor retching this morning because standing and making toast for DD was too much for me.

I'm really hoping that it stops in the next few weeks like it did last time. Feeling like this with a toddler is horrible.

Rockandrollwithit Tue 13-Mar-18 11:15:51

Yes it did for me.

DC1 - bad morning sickness but within the realm of normal. 5-20 weeks.
DC2 - HG. Vomiting 20+ times a day on bad days, right up until giving birth.

Hope it is better than you are expecting.

Not for me.
1st pregnancy - dd morning sickness was fairly awful until 20 weeks.

2nd pregnancy -ds ok but couldn't eat eggs without being sick. (Sometimes still happens now).
