    So if I don’t barf, I don’t have morning sickness?  So what exactly, then, is the boat-rocking, sweaty, mouth-overrun-with-saliva, gag at the most random things, hangover-without-any-of-the-previous-night’s-fun, “if I have another minute of this I’m going to die” feeling supposed to be then?  Morning sickness for some=non-stop vomiting.  For others, it’s nausea and the occasional puke.  For still others (including me), it’s brutal nausea that doesn’t go away.  It can strike at any time of day and bring all kinds of weirdness with it.  And this is probably Too Much Information, but while I don’t barf, I’ve had some pretty serious bouts of the runs.

    Seriously.  It’s straight-up morning sickness.  You can’t really classify it as anything else.

    Yes just nausea definitely counts! The vomiting is just a lovely extra.

    @Mrsluckywife:  bwahaha, Nicely put!

    Yep, nausea definitely counts. In fact I’d say that’s what defines it – the sea of hormones which plays havoc with your sense of taste and smell. Vomiting is an optional extra ๐Ÿ™‚

    I actually PRAYED to vomit more when I was suffering with “morning sickness”! (LOL at that name. More like ALL DAY EVERY DAY sickness!) I was sooooo nauseous, and the few times I actually did vomit brought such sweet relief for a couple of hours! (That’s probably Too Much Information. Oh well.) 

     

    So, after going through that disorienting phase of being super nauseous while being super hungry, I-think-my-insides-got-hit-by-a-truck-please-kill-me-now, you bet your buttons just being nauseous counts Wink

    @apex:  I also thought, before it hit me, that morning sickness involved lots of barfing. Nope, not for this girl.

    I was non-stop nauseous for 5 weeks, I lost 7 pounds… but I only threw up once. And like @ASH.:, I actually felt better after vomiting! NOT to say that throwing up a lot with morning sickness makes it better, not at all — I hate to throw up, and I was always worried about having it suddenly hit me at my desk, in the grocery store, etc — but long bouts of nausea definitely “count” as morning sickness.

    @paula1248:  haha thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ASH.:  @DiamondsandLace: Yup I also experienced feeling better after vomiting. The pure nausea that just drags on and on is just..bleugh!! indescribable really.

    I’m interested to know why some have voted that morning sickness must include vomiting? If you’ve experienced the just nausea part then you would know how sick you feel.

    I forced myself to vomit throughout the day during morning sickness to ease the nausea.  Yes, nausea counts as morning sickness.  It’s what would wake me up at 4am with the room spinning like I was suffering from an epic hangover.

    @beachbride1216:  a hangover is a good comparison! That’s how ive been describing it to people.

    I had to make myself sick a few times when I was so nauseaus I couldn’t leave the bathroom.

    @Mrsluckywife:  @beachbride1216:  I also described it as feeling like a terrible hangover. I only threw up once or twice in college from being hungover… mostly it would just be a terrible feeling of nausea and shakiness and an inability to choke down food. When I described it like that to my husband, after several weeks of feeling that way nonstop and losing weight, he was SO horrified — like, what have I done to you? Haha.

    @DiamondsandLace: Aah sweet that your hubs was so concerned. Mine has been really sweet too. It’s just such a hard thing to describe, as it goes on and on day after day with no let up, whereas with a hang over or food poisoning at least it gradually improves.
