I have 3 girls and am now 6 weeks pg with my 5th pregnancy (m/c in jan). I have had morning sickness with all of my girls but this time it is so bad that I have had to spend the last two days in the bed. I'm not actually throwing up (and have not done so in the past either). But the feeling of nausea is so strong and so frequent that I find it really debilitating. Far far worse then with my girls.
So I just wandered if those of you with more than one child had experienced this when having babies of a different gender. Thanx
I have heard is that it is worse with boys. Which may because boy babies apparently require slightly more nutrition in the womb than girls and, before the placenta is formed, that nutrition is leached straight from you, causing morning sickness to be strong. Having said that my mother was hospitalised with hyperemnesis (sp?) when pg with me, and my sickness with ds was never as bad as that.
oh well i've had hyperemesis in my 4 pregnancies, 2 boys and 2 girls, and its been just as bad each time, im much better this pregnancy tho(my 4th) the antisickness pills actually worked and im actually feeling pretty normal at 24 weeks lol!
