I am just venturing on to this board after sort of leaving the conception one!. I am about 4/5 weeks pregnant and this is the 3rd one, with DS1 I use to feel sick during the day but this went when I ate and was only physically sick once, with DS2 nothing didn't feel pregnant til at least 16weeks!. But this time everytime I go to bed I feel really really sick, and can't sleep because of this.I do get bouts of sickness during the day but nothing nearly as bad as at night.
Has anyone else had this and if so any tips to help it?, I have a four year old and a 22month old so feeling very tired already!
Also did anyone feel sicker with a particular sex baby, just curious
I sympathise - I got most of my morning sickness after lunch! Tiredness and hunger were (and indeed at 39 weeks still are!) triggers for me, so if you can, try not to get overtired - guess that's easier said than done with your other children though - and have something to eat an hour or so before bed. Something light like a small bowl of cereal usually sorts me out. I also always have a glass of cold water by my bed and a bottle of antacid tablets. Sometimes these help the nausea. Worth checking with your GP/midwife if there's anything you could take.
I get evening sickness too which suits me fine as I'm far too busy for it during the day. I do go to sleep easily though as I'm exhausted. I agree with ManchesterMummy2b some cereal may help.
I have been pregnant with 2 girls and two boys and all of the pregnancies have been different.
goingfor3 - never considered that the advantage of getting morning sickness in the evening was that you might be too busy during the day. I certainly was (not now I'm on maternity leave!), and feel strangly empowered now! Thanks!
I got it much worse in the evenings as well, and like you found that if I went to bed with an empty stomach it kept me awake, which was horrible.
Perhaps try eating later in the evening so you have a full stomach by the time you go to bed? Or snack on whatever you fancy - maybe rich tea biscuits, a banana or something like that? Oh, and another tip which may be a bit gross - if you throw up what you eat, come back and try a second helping afterwards!
I had this and I'm afraid the only thing that worked for me was eating somewhat unhealthy jaffa cakes - I had packets of them by the bed. (That might have explained the enooooorrmous bump.) But experiment with toast, crackers and other snacks at bedtime and you might find somethng that helps.
