@mrssouthernfairytale:  I had minor morning sickness with my first: only Threw up a few times all pregnancy. I had unbearable sickness with my 2nd for my entire pregnancy. I was physically sick multiple times a day. It subsided for approximately 1-2 months around months 7-8 and then came back with a vengeance month 9.

I’m currently pregnant with #2 and I’m really feeling green all the time. I know I felt icky with my first but this seems worst. My husband has commented that it seems worse to him too. I’ve wondered if it seems bad because we’re both working from home and juggling our 10 month old. Last time I was loafing around without any major responsibilities.

mrssouthernfairytale:  I had reasonably bad morning sickness with my first son from week 7 through to week 13. currently pregnant with my second baby and barely experienced any morning sickness at all. I did feel mildly hungover between weeks 8-10 but it was completely bearable and I was still able to function at work and at home. 

As a previous poster has already stated it’s quite possible the perceived reduction in morning sickness is because I’m so busy running around after a 2 year old tornado that everything else seems secondary.

Pregnancy #1, I got migraines and those were the only times that I threw up (3times). I was tired but nothing like baby #2. Baby was a boy. Food cravings were Buffalo wraps, water, healthy foods (fruit, cheese, milk, etc)

pregnancy #2, I was on and off nauseous in the first trimester. I was also definitely more tired but I had a 3year old who stopped napping to chase after as well. Baby was a girl. Food cravings were chocolate (which helped the nausea some days), and smoothies

@mrssouthernfairytale:  ahh all the naps with the first pregnancy, so glorious! I miss naps in general, ha! I am glad you’re feeling good, I don’t wish this on anyone!

@mrsr88:  that’s so interesting! I have wondered if this baby is a girl because I feel “worse” but we’ll see. Buffalo wrap sounds amazing right now.

With my first, I had terrible food aversions from about 6 to 14 weeks with all day nausea but zero vomiting. Also had a bad taste in my mouth and excess saliva (constant spitting) from about 8 to 17 weeks. 

With this one I had food aversions though not quite as badly, nausea was mostly resolved by 12 weeks and still zero vomiting. However, I have excess saliva with this one too (ptyalism); it started at 8 weeks and im currently 29 weeks and it has not gone away!! The volume of excess saliva this time is massive and absolutely disgusting!

Very mild with my first (boy), absolutely awful all day sickness well beyond first trimester with my second (girl). I’d only have a third if someone could guarantee its a boy, lol!

Pregnancy #1 – great pregnancy, I felt sick maybe 5 times throughout my pregnancy (threw up maybe 3 times). Had so much energy! I used to walk home from work (30min walk). I was really hungry but went to a dietitian and she set a meal plan for me, so I ate like every 2 hours and felt great. Baby girl. 

 

Pregnancy #2 (currently 32 weeks pregnant) – OMG! Nausea hit from week 6 for the whole 1st trimester. I would wake up in the morning and no matter how little I ate I would be throwing up. It would be mostly in the mornings but I also threw throughout the day… had a lot less energy, had to have midday naps. Haven’t been as hungry in fact can’t seem to be eating certain foods (like meat and fish). Baby girl. 

I’m now feeling much better than that first trimester but it had been so much more difficult than the first pregnancy.

I had morning sickness for all 3 (currently 35 weeks with my third) but the severity different. My second was the most manageable and I could relieve symptoms by eating small amounts throughout the day. My first was somewhat manageable. My third was the worst and the only thing that remotely touched the nausea was medication, and that just took off the edge.

@mrssouthernfairytale:  First pregnancy I was throwing up every day from around 6 weeks to 18 weeks, it was horrendous. This pregnancy, I’ve thrown up a handful of times but that cleared up by around 14 weeks. Nowhere near as bad this time! And both baby boys.

I had bad morning sickness with both pregnancies, but it was worse with my second. I had to go on Zofran, which allowed me to function a little but even with that I was still vomiting most days and kinda hanging by a thread. However, once that eased up around 15/16 weeks, my second pregnancy was a breeze and was easier on my body than the first one, even though I was “geriatric” this time. Delivery was also easier. I’m wondering if that’s because I was forced to be more active because I had a toddler to look after…who knows.

@mrssouthernfairytale:   I often felt nauseous with #1 but never threw up. I loved off saltines for several weeks (weeks 4-10) and with #2 nothing at all, pretty much just like you. I often forgot I was pregnant with #2 😆
