I think mine started around 6 weeks. It was worst from 8-14 weeks (when I thought it might not go away), but gradually has improved. I don’t think I’ve vomited since 20 weeks, but even from weeks 14-20 it was just an occasional gag-refex type vomit as opposed to feeling nauseous.

I went through a phase where I loved watermelon, too! I had no idea it was associated with helping–that’s so interesting that my body just naturally craved it.

Mine peaked and was terrible from weeks 8-10, about 11 weeks it tapered off and I’m almost 18 weeks and it’s pretty nonexistent. Good luck, it’s terrible, but it won’t last forever!

I was on prednisone during the first trimester and this completely masked my morning sickness so I had no sickness and tons of energy. Once I stopped the prednisone, I was hit with all day sickness that was worse in the evenings. My nausea stopped hours after giving birth :/

Started at 6 weeks, was at its absolute worst between weeks 8-12, started to ease midway into week 12. I am now at 15 weeks and I still get queasy if I don’t eat enough or let myself get really hungry. But it’s not constant.

Mine began during week 4 and ended week 12. It was at its peak the entire time. I was sick morning, noon, and night – It was very hard to work/rest. I had to sit a lot or I would get dizzy and ended up telling my boss b/c it was impacting my job. Then is went away …

My son it last 32 weeks, my daughter all 40 but I had severe HG so that isn’t the norm. Acupuncture and zofran were my heroes

I’m not sure that I have classic morning sickness. No nausea or vomiting, but around 6 weeks, I started to feel a bit “off,” like I was experiencing motion sickness even though all I was doing was sitting down. I’d feel a lot better when I was lying down. I had that on and off for about a week and a half. 

Also, even though I didn’t feel outright nauseated, I still keep feeling like if I eat anything but what I want to eat, it’ll tip the balance. So I’m craving a lot of lemonade and lemon iced tea, lots of sour, tart stuff, and when I feel off, I stay away from anything meaty. 

I’m nine weeks btw. Anything could still happen!

I am only 4 weeks (just got my positive 3 days ago and it started the day before that) and I already have terrible nausea and have been badly carsick (never had that before).

beebeedeebee:  It’s funny that you said that because that’s one thing that I’ve been eating a lot of.  Yesterday it was the only thing I would touch for breakfast.

Mine started at 4 weeks (just a few days ago) and is accompanied by car sickness.  I am also wondering how long this is going to last.

For me, it started Week 8 and lasted until Week 24. I’m told most people have it go away Week 12-ish, though!

Mine started at 6 weeks. Peaked at 12-14 weeks. Finally at 18 weeks I stopped throwing up and felt back to normal. Hopefully yours doesn’t last long!

I was super nauseous and was unable to keep down my meals. Here I entered the kitchen and nausea and vomiting started vigorously. But, finally I found a remedy that worked wonder and my sickness vanished. No to morning sickness tea was a lifesaver to me.
