So i will be 9 weeks on Wednesday and have yet to experience any real MS (knock on wood). What are the odds that I am out of woods for morning sickness? I am sort of hoping that at nine weeks, if I was going to get sick, I probably would have already started but I have also read that at nine weeks hormones start running wild again.

I had moderate morning sickness until 10 weeks, then it became severe and lasted until 19 weeks and has lessened a lot in severity. I do think it can worsen around 10 weeks, at least that’s what I’ve heard, but I doubt you’ll go from nothing to really severe MS.

I’m 11 weeks and haven’t had any m/s, you could be one of the ones that gets by without being sick.

I never had any! Hope you are one of the lucky ones!

You might just get lucky 🙂 my Future Sister-In-Law just gave birth and never had any morning sickness. Only once did she randomly feel sick and throw up, after she ate too much. So good luck to you!

I have never been preggers, but have a question for you ladies that did experience morning sickness. For those of you that vomit, do you sense far enough ahead of time to get to a sink/toilet or is it more of a surprise? I am just curious because I work with children and wondered how I might deal with that if I were to ever get blessed with a pregnancy. Thanks girls (and OP…for letting me semi-threadjack).

@Danielle81: Mine really ramped up around 8-9 weeks, but hopefully you’ll just be one of the lucky ones. I can usually head mine off by making sure to always have something in my stomach, but not eating too much at a time.
@melisslp: I’ve never not been able to get to a toilet in time, but I know that’s not always the case. This morning I had a close call–it came up fast, and I had to hold it in my mouth until I could get to a toilet–and then spent the next 5 minutes hunched over it. But I usually go from being queasy to “oh my god I need to vomit” slow enough that I can make it to a proper receptacle in time.

Mine was absolutely bad by that point, so maybe you’ll skip it! Fingers crossed for you!
@melisslp: I WAS unable to get to a toilet in time, but then again mine was REALLY severe. DH has now cleaned up so much puke out of our house, he jokes that baby spit up will be a cakewalk after me.
My best advice is, if you even THINK you’re going to throw up, then GO. My problem was usually that I stopped to consider how serious my body was, and that used up all of my spare time. One bad time I got banana pancake vomit all over the carpet, wall, bathroom mirror and counter. That was probably 4-5 months ago, and I still haven’t eaten banana pancakes since then…

@melisslp: I get a really gross feeling and I know when I am going to hurl. Usually I go to the washroom and then stand there for a minuite and then I start hurling :S So much fun… Not.

@Mrs Sarah McK: Glad to hear that you’ve been able to make it to a receptacle on time for the most part. I just wonder what I’d do with my students during that time…I guess I’d send them back to their homeroom, while I clean up after myself?!
@Quietserenity: Holy cow! It sounds like your bouts with morning sickness have been the pits. I don’t blame you for NEVER wanting to eat banana pancakes again!

I’m in my twelveth week, and I haven’t had any morning sickness yet either. If I let my belly get empty, I start feeling a little yucky, but nothing crazy. My big symptoms have been fatigue and headaches.

Mine was at its worst between 9 and 12 weeks, so you just might miss it completely!
@melisslp: I was so sick 24/7 that I constantly felt like I was going to throw up. The only indication I had that I really was going to was that my mouth would fill with saliva about 30 seconds beforehand and I could make it to the toilet.

@eryepye: Im not pregnant but I have a VERY weak stomach and I know that saliva build-up you’re talking about:)
You preggo ladies are awesome for going through all of this! Best wishes to you all 🙂 OP you’re very luck so far!! I hope I too can be blessed enough to be pregnant very soon (sans the m/s!)

My doctor told me that it usually peaks around 11 weeks. Hopefully if you haven’t had any MS yet, you’re just not going to experience it.
