    howsweetitis:  I had a day MS from 6-12.5 weeks. Right around 13 weeks I remember  waking up and not feeling like I wanted to throw up all day. It did get worse around 10 weeks though.

    howsweetitis:  I had morning sickness from weeks 5 to 12, 14, 16, 18-20 (I am 20 weeks right now). However, weeks 7-10 were the absolute worst. You are close to getting better!

    Very similar to PP – my MS started like clockwork at 6 weeks, then got better between 11 and 13. It was gradual – I’d been barfing every other day, and then it went down to like twice a week, and then stopped completely by 13 (except twice when I had stress-related nausea later on).

    I had all day sickness (nausea, sporadic puking) until about 14 weeks. It gradually started getting better. The food aversions, which were almost as bad, stuck around longer.

    I had all day sickness between 6-16 weeks with my first, and 7-18 weeks with my second. I only threw up about 3 times with my first, and once with my second. My MS also returned toward the end of my first pregnancy. I’m 27 weeks right now with my second, so we’ll see if it comes back with this pregnancy.

    I’m 12weeks+2 days and still have it. But weeks 9+10 were the worst for me so far. I thought it was getting better around 11.5 weeks, but nope I ended up vomiting (rather than just dry heaving like I usually do) at 12 weeks on the dot. I still felt worse in general weeks 9+10 though. I’m interested in the results of this poll too.

    howsweetitis:  I had nausea and threw up most of the day from weeks 4- 16 and then from weeks 15-20 (where I am currently) just in the morning.  I am so tired of being told that it should stop anytime now. Ya people have been saying that since I was 13 weeks pregnant. 

    For me I don’t think it got better as time went on I just think I learned how to cope and deal with it. I knew what to eat and what to avoid and was always prepared with a ziploc bag, face wipes and a toothbrush. 🙂

    I had it bad 8-16weeks.  I think it gradually got better over a week or two until it was just gone.

    With my first pregnancy MS kicked in around week 8 and lasted until maybe week 15.  I think one day I threw up like 12 times, it was horrible.  With my 2nd pregnancy I felt a tad nauseous a few times but never threw up once, I couldn’t believe the difference.

    It started at 6 weeks.  I stopped throwing up around 18 weeks.  I didn’t stop the medication until 33 weeks (I did go down from 9/day to 2 at night only though around 20 weeks.)  Every time I tried to come off it entirely I had days of non-stop nausea where I would have begged to vomit.  I think working rotating shifts really made it worse.  I’d work 2 days, 3 off, 3 nights, 2 off, 3 days, 3 off, 2 nights, 2 off.  So I never had a set sleep schedule.  It was hell.  At 20 weeks I had a month of vacation and came back to straight days (same schedule, just no nights.)  And it started getting a lot better after that. 

    From weeks 6 – 18 I threw up multiple times a day, all day, though I did manage to have some really great days.  But I remember one night while I was trying to make a snack that I wore a path from our kitchen to our powder room.  I was back and forth and back and forth.  I never did manage to eat the snack that night.  Weeks 20ish to 35ish were awesome.  As long as I took the meds at night I felt fantastic! 

    And to be the bearer of bad news, it can come back at the end!  I’m not sure if its related to my cholestasis or if its just bad luck.  But within the last week I’ve started with major nausea again and I’ve started vomiting again.  I’m 37 weeks and so. completely. done.

    howsweetitis:  I had it from 8 weeks to about 12/13 weeks then it almost completely disappeared until 26/27 weeks. It was a lot worse in the first trimester than it has been lately though (i’m 36 weeks). Preggie pops, candied ginger and saltines were lifesavers for me!

    I had severe morning sickness with both kids (meaning I lost about 10% of my body weight, throwing up multiple times per day). With #1, it went from about 6 weeks – 18 weeks, with #2 it started closer to 4 weeks and ended around the same time. I actually had to get dental work done to restore my enamel because I’d vomited so much. 

    Anyway, for me it gradually tapered off.

    It’s really hard to get through. Hang in there. When you’re in the midst of it, it seems like there will be no end. I remember feeling so desperately awful. But it WILL get better, and you’ll have trouble even remembering what it felt like. I promise! 🙂

    I’m interested to see what people say, too, though I’m realizing it could be anytime (or potentially no time, which is how it feels!). I have all-day sickness and don’t vomit much but just feel SO bad constantly, but then for the last week, started throwing up at least once a day. I’m 11w6d today and was really hoping 12 weeks was going to be the magical numbers when it stopped! We’re going out of town next week and I’m dreading flying and being sick on vacation!
