ISIS639:  There is no relation to having previously vomited in your life.

As many as 90 percent of pregnant women experience some nausea in early pregnancy and as many as 33 percent vomit during pregnancy.

ISIS639:  I also have an iron stomach…well, I did until college and beer bongs and vodka shots, haha. I had bad nausea but only had one bout of vomitting after I swallowed a pill and it didn’t go down all the way. The nausea sucked, I basically felt hungover/motion sick for about 8 weeks….

ISIS639:  I had terrible morning sickness but not the puke kind! I was so nauseous all the time and I urged a lot a certain smells and when I tried to eat certain things or at the smell of meat but I rarely puked. Having said that the nausea rendered me incapacitated once it started… I could barely function! Mine kicked in at 7.5w and didn’t end until 18w :s  honestly a lot of morning sickness felt like a REALLY bad hangover, like way too similar!

I didn’t have any morning sickness.. well, I did at times feel a tiny bit nauseous at night after taking my vitamins but it wasn’t a big deal at all. I have three friends who are pregnant right now and none of them have morning sickness so it doesn’t seem that common! There’s a huge difference in vomiting and feeling a little bit nauseous (both that can be considered as ‘morning sickness’) though so statistics can be very misleading.

ISIS639:  I had terrible morning sickness that included nausea and puking. My doctor prescribed me medicine that’s just Vitamin B and Unisom and it helped me with the actual puking, but I still got nauseous a few times a day. There’s no way in knowing if youll get sick or not.

You cannot predict how your body will respond to the hormones. It’s different for each person and each pregnancy. Sorry no way to know.

ISIS639:  its true… honestly I was freaked out about it when I found out because my cubicle was no where near the bathroom…. for me like I said I could prob count on one hand the num of times I puked and it was my own fault (trying to eat things I knew I shouldnt have)… but it the just feeling like absolute crap that was the worst. I had super bad food aversions….. ugh the worst!!! I pretty much lived on soup, crackers, grilled cheese, and pasta for most of the pregnancy :s

ISIS639:  I can also count with one hand the number of times I vomited prior to pregnancy, strong stomach you can say. Well, I vomited 4 times in a time frame of about 4 weeks. Once your body gears to it, there is nothing you can do. Sometimes, there is not even that much time to actually find a good place to vomit. I was lucky that everytime it happened I was at home. You need to pay attention to avoid things that might trigger vomiting, and you will know what those are once you get there. Your sense of smell and taste become stronger, or at least they did for me. I know some women have it pretty bad and would throw up daily for weeks. Hopefully, you’re a one of the lucky ones.

the previous posters are right… there is no way to know for sure how you will react to all the hormonal changes going on. Here’s my theory (although I have no way of knowing if this has a grain of truth in it, or if it’s complete garbage 😉 )…. but both my sis and I have very easy menstrual periods- neither of us get PMS, we don’t have cramps  or significant bloating….. my theory is that our bodies must somehow be tolerating the monthly changes that occur. So…. in terms of pregnancy, neither of us got morning sickness.

I was tired in the beginning but I definitely had a stronger sense of smell…. but otherwise, I would kind of forget I was pregnant until I started to show. I also didn’t have any food aversions either. Maybe I was just one of the lucky ones 🙂

I’m afraid most people will have some degree of MS, and everyone I know puked at least once. There’s no link with previous episodes of vomiting. I’m almost never sick, and I puked quite a few times, mostly during the second trimester (oddly enough).

I’ve heard it’s worse if you’re quite slim, but I can’t remember if the stats back that up.

Have you asked your mom about her experience with morning sickness? It seems to me like that is fairly often a good predictor.

ISIS639:  I didn’t really have morning sickness or much nausea except in really specific situations. Feeling like you need to throw up and sitting over a toilet gagging when your stomach is doing the convulsive thing is almost as bad!!!! Ouch.

I’m kind of like you that I can count the number of times I’ve actually gotten sick. It’s actually a bit of a phobia for me and so the hard part about morning sickness is that it triggered panic attacks. I was so worried about it that I’ve researched every possible way to lessen/avoid morning sickness  

But Im 25 weeks and I never actually threw up. I felt crappy some days but I took care of myself, ate really healthy (and often!!!) and avoided the things that really set it off, like going to the grocery store and certain foods. 

You don’t have to get sick just because you are pregnant. I’ve actually found pregnancy to be much easier than everyone told me it would be. There are uncomfortable parts but they pale in comparison to hearing baby’s heartbeat or feeling him move. 

But the biggest anti nausea tip is to set a timer on your phone and eat every two hours. Protein and starch, lots of crackers or chips, even if you’re not feeling much like eating. I felt the worst when I waited to eat. in the first trinester your body is making a human and a new organ (the placenta) from scratch and needs continuous fuel.
