    Where did you hear that?

    Each pregnancy is different, although a woman may have a pattern to her pregnancies —  things she tends to experience. Morning sickness getting worse each pregnancy isn’t one I’ve heard about, and certainly not when it comes to pregnancies in general. 

    If a woman has an issue like HG, she may have terrible morning sickness each time, but it doesn’t get worse each time for the average woman. 

    Outside factors can contribute to morning sickness, too. A woman may experience more severe or less severe morning sickness based on what she does and/or where she is during each pregnancy as well.

    lalanono :  Same with all 3 of my living children, I never had morning sickness. I have two angel babies, and I had morning sickness bad with both of them. I think my age might have been part of the cause. 

    I was in my early/mid 20’s with the oldest three. Late 30s with the other two.

    I had regular morning sickness with my 1st (girl) vomited about 5 times a day from week 6 to 13. 

    I had HG with my 2nd (boy) vomited about 20 times a day before being put on 4 different meds which reduced it to 4 times a day but constant nausea. Vomited from week 4 to week 20 and now just have nausea with occasional vomits. 

    My sister had HG with her 1st pregnancy (twin boys) and nothing with her daughter. My Mum had HG entire pregnancy with my brother and normal morning sickness with her girls.
