twas at about 9 weeks till about 15 weeks, all day i am afriad, but worse in the evenings. I was nver really sick tho, just 'felt' sick. burping, wind, the lot.

yuck. seabands sort of helped.

Mine started around 6 weeks - lots of women seem to get it around then.

I was really early, just after my period was missed. God, it was shit, but worth it!

MarsGalaxyDairyMilkMyPassions Wed 25-Feb-09 16:37:06

oh great i havent got long to go then!!

You might not get it at all, or you might have it in a very mild form. Don't panic.

been feeling a lil nausea and have had terrible bad stomach (cant get off the loo!) sorry tmi but been like that for 5days!

I am afraid mine hit at 6 weeks but to be honest with you those seabands were a god send.

6 weeks - 10 weeks but I was never sick and only felt queasy in the evening. For me, the tiredness was much, much worse but I could deal with that by just going to bed.

5 weeks and still going strong now at 11 weeks! everyone different though, my friend is just starting to feel a bit sick at 8 weeks.

First time 6 weeks for ten weeks.

This time was feeling off from 4 weeks, but figured it out quicker as not at uni doing that whole beer thing!

minouminou Wed 25-Feb-09 16:54:44

Around 6 weeks, when it went from 0-60 both times.
Oh, HBOB, how're you doing?

Snowfalls108 Wed 25-Feb-09 16:55:35

4 weeks! I'm now 10+6 and haven't had any for a couple of days (which I'm actually finding a big worrying).
I also found seabands helped. I slept without them, but would put them on about 20 minutes before getting out of bed.
Other than that avoiding coffee smells, and greasy food helped, and making sure I'm not too tired - when stressed it got a lot worse.

Mine has normally lasted from 5 or 6 weeks until about 12 weeks (but strted to ease off at around 9 weeks).
Snowfalls - I had the same worries as you when I was having my last DC, but when I went for my scan I found the baby was actually due 8 days earlier than I'd thought - so perhaps it will be the same for you! (4 weeks is very early for it to start, would make much more sense if you were really 5+ weeks then and 12 weeks now!)

Started at 6 weeks exactly, with no warning. Before breakfast, was washing down my pregnacare vitamin with a swig of diet coke (something I have stopped doing BTW!). All of a sudden I was in the toilet being sick. It's still going on at 14 weeks. sad

mersmam Wed 25-Feb-09 18:17:47

I've read that 6 weeks is the normal time to start sarah76. With my DD2 I actually woke up at 1am on the day of me being six weeks and was sick for the first time!!!!
Hope it gets better for you soon.
BTW - diet coke is the only thing I can keep down in the early stages of morning sickness! Don't know WHAT my body is trying to tell me...

highrise Wed 25-Feb-09 19:47:04

started at 5 weeks disappeared around 17-18 weeks. Sprite was the saver for me...and fox's glacier fruits...

Mummywannabe Wed 25-Feb-09 20:31:46

4 weeks, before I knew I was pregnant. I thought I was ill as kept being sick during the day. Then realised I might be pregnant so tested and I was.
