I’m coming up to 9 weeks and its getting worse. I’m so thrilled to be pregnant and I don’t want this to come across as complaining, I just want to know when did it end for you?
Ive been in bed all day crying 🙁 I’ve got low blood pressure as well so I feel drunk and hung over at the same time and I’m scared ill never feel ok again..

You should add a poll option- when you go to the doctor and your Darling Husband tells them to please give you something to stop puking because you do it so much its making him miserable too lol.
Seriously though I’m 18 weeks and it hasn’t gone away yet. I have a prescription for zofran which prevents the naseau, but when it wears off or I forget to take it, the morning sickness is still there. Talk to your doctor and see what options you have.

I had morning sickness (actually, all-day-long sickness) all the way through second trimester. I discovered though, that if I could force myself eat something small, like a fruit-&-cereal bar or fiber bar type thing, it really helped. I recommend trying that — even if you’re sure it won’t stay down, make yourself eat something small. It should be nutritious, but something that you like the taste and smell of.

Mine was bad until 20ish weeks. Still there but I’m off medicine now!

@Sea_bass: Oh darlin, I really feel ya! I am 11 weeks and still really struggling (though not complaining! Happier than happy and so grateful! 🙂 but sometimes it really gets me in the dumps. I am just doing my best to get by, and manage it as best I can. I have spent a lot of time on the couch and it is hard for me to sleep because I am constantly hungry- so hungry I am nauseous. Basically nauseous 24/7!

I am 23 weeks and while my morning sickness still lingers maybe 1 or 2 times a week, it is getting A LOT better… finally. I thought I was going to be sick the entire pregnancy.

@Sea_bass: I never had bad morning sickness but I know that whenever my stomach was empty, it was 100% worse! I even had to have a lollipop in my purse just because of a low blood sugar incident. Always keep ginger ale and some crackers close by!

@Sea_bass: I feel you! All the home remedies do not work for me. Even sometimes my prescription for nausea meds doesn’t work. 🙁 I have often lain in bed bemoaning the fact it’s only getting worse past the 7 week mark I’ve heard is the ‘peak’ for many in morning sickness. There is little I can do but eat, sleep and pray my prenatals stay down. Snacks don’t make it better and I have thrown up ginger ale, soup and crackers so many times.
Hang in there! 🙁

Mine went away right around 16 weeks. (just about when I was becoming scared it was going to last all pregnancy). That said, I still can’t eat pork.
That said, if yours is so bad that you can’t function (this happened to the wife of my co-worker) then it’s possible yours will stick around for even longer. Don’t play the hero!! Get to your doctor!! It’s much worse for you and baby to not be able to eat/function than it is to take some medicine.
Hugs and hope you feel better very soon.

Sorry you’re feeling so bad, OP! For me personally, I’ve had nausea and (some) vomiting throughout my entire pregnancy. I had to get a prescription for Zofran since it simply would not go away and that has helped quite a bit. However, it’s different for many women. For the most part, from what I’ve heard from other Moms I know, their morning sickness ended around the start of the second trimester. Hopefully that will be the case for you!
