    I had NO morning sickness with DD1 In fact i had no symptoms what so ever (i still even had my light “period”) 

    But with DD2 I was so sick and lost so much weight I had to be put on medication so i could keep ANYTHING down. I couldnt move without throwing up and I puked down the side of MANY cars. and it never went away I threw up almost every morning up until the day I had her.

    But my mom had no morning sickeness with any of her 4 kids.

    My mom had awful morning sickness with all three of her kids. I had none with my daughter. I did, however, inherit truly wicked stretch marks. I think I would have rather had the m/s!

    My mom had 4 kids and not a single day during any of the pregnancies did she get sick… I however was sick constantly with my son from about 3 weeks pregnant until 7 months pregnant. 

    My little sister is now pregnant too and her morning sickness is worse than mine was, she lost tons of weight and all.

    My mom was sick all day, every day, all 9 months, with all 3 pregnancies. With my DS I was nauseas for the first trimester but this go around I don’t even have that and I’m almost 16 weeks. It’s different from person-to-person and pregnancy-to-pregnancy.

    @beekiss:  Well, I know this isn’t true, because I had twin boys at 18.  At that age, my diet consisted of Doritos, pizza and Mcdonald’s.  I didn’t have any morning sickness with the twins.  However, at the age of 25 when I had my daughter and ate a good, balanced diet, but was sick as a dog for 16 weeks.

    To the OP, I don’t believe morning sickness is genetic.  I don’t believe that it correlates to how healthy the pregnancy is, the health of the baby, the age of the mother or the gender of the baby.  I think it depends on the woman, the pregnancy, the baby in that pregnancy and probably some other factors we are unaware of scientifically.  Everyone is different.  Every pregnancy is different.  As you can see I had two very different pregnancies and was sick for one, but not the other.

    I think it may be genetic. Although, I bet it’s different for every person.  I didn’t have any MS at all and I asked my mom and she said she didn’t have it with any of her 4 children. I was like, thanks mom! So hopefully it is and you won’t have it:)

    I don’t think morning sickness is hereditary.

    Each pregnancy is different; even the same person experiencing multiple pregnancies can have very different symptoms. 

    My mom had morning sickness worse with one pregnancy than the other. My sister had bad morning sickness one pregnancy and zero morning sickness the other. This is my first pregnancy, I’ve had zero morning sickness.

    Morning sickness has a lot to do with how you eat and your environment. Surprisingly, many peope who are vegetarian do not experience as much morning sickness as people who aren’t. It’s foods like eggs, meat, coffee, cheese, etc., that tend to cause nausea even by the smell of it. My mother had it, and I did too.

    But what does run in families, is traditions.

    Well crap.  I was bummed to see the “My mom didn’t have it and neither did I” choice come in with the measliest amount of votes!  My mom didn’t have it, and so far I don’t have it at all – but I’m only 5w1d so I didn’t vote.  I think it usually hits around 6-8 weeks, so we’ll see!

    @beekiss:  I didn’t say [all] non-vegetarians. Above, I stated exactly “Surprisingly, many people who are vegetarian do not experience as much morning sickness as people who aren’t.” This is a medical statistic that most vegetarians experience morning sickness, less often overall.
