Here's just a quick survey.
Some people say morning sickness is worse if you're expeting a girl.
Is this true I wonder?
How about we all say what baby we had and if we had morning sickness or not and then in a few days I'll work the percentages out and post them on here- or shall I say in a week or so.
If we all list like this to make it easy for me to do the calsulations:

Dd- Bad morning sickness

competitionwinningCOD Sun 19-Sep-04 16:16:44

no morning or any other sickeness ever

Ds1: dreadful permanent nausea for 4 months, got some relief from puking which I did with alarming regularity at all times of the day (used to have to get off the bus on my way home from work to throw up in litter bins )

Ds2: dreadful permanent nausea also for 4 months - but very little actual puking (maybe 3 or 4 times in total)

Strangely enough it was better with ds1, despite the inconvenience of finding receptacles to throw up in everwhere I went...once I had thrown up I would feel a bit better for a little while.

Oh and a little anecdote - rushed in through the front door one evening after working late, past dh and upstairs, just made it to the loo in time. He was on the phone to his Mum and came up (still talking to her on the cordless phone as I retched loudly in the background) to tell me that "hey, Mum never had morning sickness with any of us three.."

Had awful 'morning' sickness, which lasted all day with all 4 of my dds. Lost loads of weight though which was great, but promptly put it all back on once I had had them .

popsycal Sun 19-Sep-04 16:22:39

marthmoo - sound like you with my kids

also my mum had all girls and never had any sickness at all

prefernot Sun 19-Sep-04 16:25:36

Dd - bad sickness all day

haven't had a ds, but:

My mum:
Ds - bad sickness all day
Dd (me) - no sickness at all!!

Best mate:
Dd - no sickness
Ds - bad sickness

Consequently I went through the pregnancy convinced I was having a boy because everyone said to me it was worse if you were expecting a boy.

misdee Sun 19-Sep-04 16:39:04
