Morning sickness...what is normal?

I'm 10 weeks-ish with my third pregnancy. I hardly had any sickness with the other two.

Now, though, I can't stop puking! I'm sick every evening, about 4 times, and struggle to eat the next morning until about 11 as I'm feeling too nauseous. Lunch is fine, and I can snack in the afternoon, but come dinner time the sickness starts again.

Today has been worse, I can't even keep drinks down sad

Is this normal? Should I worry? I'm seeing the midwife on Tuesday.

I know this is not an exciting subject but I could do with advice!!

It was normal for me sadly. But it did get better by about 14 weeks.

I went to see the doctor who did the skin pinch test and I wasn't dehydrated so was "OK"

Thanks Idris. I don't think I'm dehydrated, just feel rotten.

I'm sure it wasn't this bad with my other pregnancies!

Hang in there - it happens a lot, pregnancies are so different. I felt GREAT with my DS, had only light morning sickness for perhaps a couple weeks. With this pregnancy - I was sick as a dog for 3 months (starting with about 7-8 weeks). I am 38 1/2 weeks now and I STILL get nauseous on and off. I don't know if the fact that this is a girl has anything to do with it.

Things that helped me:
-eating thinly sliced lemons sprinkled with sugar
-eating raw baby carrots
-eating olives

when I mean eating - I mean constantly having one of those from above in my mouth...

As you know - it is important to stay hydrated. It is hard when you're nauseous but do the best you can. Also, for me the sickness gets worse if I am tired...

Good luck, hon!

sorry you are suffering abbierhodes, It normally gets better after about 12 weeks. - Although I was sick the morning after I conceived every time (5DCs) and EVERY day throughout each pregnancy! The one thing that stopped me feeling sick all the time was the travel sickness wrist bands. They really worked, took away all sick feeling, but unfortunately, didn't stop me being sick, so mid conversation I could throw up, which was quite embarrassing! blush

Hope yours stops soon. smile

Hi abbierhodes

Sorry you are suffering - yes unfortunately it is normal and theres other women going through exactly the same... Im rubbish at doing proper links to other threads but there was one on here just a few days ago called 'ive never felt this sick before' (or something along those lines) if you scroll down a few pages you will see it -It contains endless tales of woe very similar to yours. I found this strangely comforting knowing it wasnt just me feeling like death

Thanks for all the responses. Nice to know I'm not alone!!!

I'm feeling a little better this evening after a strange dinner of super noodles and lemonade!

Odd what eases nausea, but that's what I fancied and it's staying down so far!!

Oh, and katendmom, I hope there is something in your girl theory! I have two boys and would love for this to be a pink one!

Wow, overdid the exclamation marks, sorry. I'm just so pleased not to be feeling better!
