I’m 7 weeks pregnant today (!!) and I’m starting to feel a bit better in terms of my nausea BUT I was wondering if my nausea is getting better or if it just hasn’t fully hit yet haha so I wanted to get an idea from everyone else who is currently or has recently been pregnant to I know what to look forward to. I know everyone is SO different but it’s still interesting to hear other experiences.
I was originally going to post this question in one of the month posts that came before mine but I figured the response would be much better if I just made a post as it will include everyone in this section.
So…. when did the nausea start for you? When did it end? Did you throw up or just feel nauseous? Feel free to add any other info! 🙂

Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different. I never really had nausea. All I had to do was eat a pretzel for it to go away. I never threw up. At work, there are/were a bunch of pregnant women and here were their experiences: 1. Never went away and she was sick the entire pregnancy 2. Pregnant with twins, she threw up and was nauseous up until 18 weeks 3. Only threw up once, but never got nauseous. 4. So sick that she has to stay home in the mornings.
Good luck to you!

Mine started in week 5 and I am still taking medication for it at almost 21 weeks (started around week 9). I have only vomited once (when I tried to stop the meds!) but the nausea was unbelievably terrible…I could hardly eat and then felt worse from not eating, and so the cycle goes! My advice would be to ask for medication if you think you need it–at least for me it was the difference between functioning or not!

It hit immediately annnnnd it’s still happening for me at 10 weeks. I did have a week of feeling good in there but thats it, now I feel even worse than before.
I would say week 8 and 9, I felt better. Then back hard at week 10. Now I wake up sick at 1:30am everynight and lay there with nausea or a splitting headache or terrible back pain.

I had a tiny bit of nausea around the 5 week mark. I’m almost 10 weeks now and I will sometimes just get very mild waves of low grade nausea. I think (hope) I’m one of the lucky ones. My mom didn’t have any morning sickness with any of her three kids; my sister had it very bad with her second and just throughout the first trimester with her first.
I know we hear it all the time, but I truly do believe now that every pregnancy is different and it’s just kind of random. Everything online says I should be more prone to MS (I used to get bad motion sickness, I have vertigo issues, etc.), but that’s just not the case. So far.

My doc did give me a couple of sample bottles of the nausea medicine which I haven’t started yet. She wanted me to try holistic approaches first and only take those if I really really was dying. She also adviced the pill would be expensive for me with my insurance.

It hit me around 8 weeks and lasted pretty badly through the middle of my second trimester. I’m due next month and it’ll still pop up now and then, very mildly though. I was able to combat it with ginger ale, saltines, and mints. It just depends on your pregnancy, even any pregnancies you may have after this one could be a different experience.

tattiibee : My nausea probably started right around 7 weeks in. I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks and I remember having maybe a good two weeks until I felt miserable. I was nautious every. single. day. Though I only ever threw up once. So that was good I guess. I actually ended up losing weight in my first trimester as a result.
It ended just after my 2nd trimester began…so probably around 15-ish weeks.
My best friend is also pregnant though and she experienced horrible morning sickness from around 8 weeks or so until the middle-end of her second trimester. It was awfful and she threw up nearly every day.

I had pretty mild nausea from 4-6 weeks. I used the B6/unisom combo at first and then diclegis which helped. Once I hit 6 weeks my nausea ramped us and was basically all day hell. It got worse and worse for a couple weeks and then leveled out and continued through week 12 and started improving at week 13. My doctor prescribed zofran that I took from week 8 to 12. I initially avoided it but I was so sick that it was the only thing that allowed me to function since I still had to work and be a human being. Despite how awful I felt I feel really lucky that my nausea ended so early.

Mine started around 6 weeks and I got 2 weeks of feeling okay at the beginning of 3rd trimester before it kicked back up again. Currently I’m laying in bed contemplating whether I’m going to end up barfing or not. It’s been constant nausea with routine vomiting and my weight has started to go down again at 31 and a half weeks and I’ve reached the point where I dread eating. Fun times but the end is near! 59 more days….

Although my kids are now 8 and 9, I remember the nausea vividly – worst part of pregnancy…ugggh…I was nauseous from 6 weeks until 3 months everyday all day. I can’t believe I survived that mess.

I get queasy if I don’t eat something every 2-3 hours. I was never super nauseous and I never vomited. It’s been that way my entire pregnancy, so I’ve just gotten used to always eating every 2-3 hours. It’s become beneficial because as this little guy grows, there’s less and less room, and I can’t eat big portions anymore (I was told this wouldn’t happen until third trimester towards the end, definitely started happening around 22-23 weeks for me, he’s been measuring big my entire pregnancy!).
I haven’t really had food adversions where something would make me want to puke, but I definitely had different periods of being turned off food. We ate out for a good 4-5 weeks because the smell of cooking food was too much. I could handle eating if it showed up or I showed up and ate before I had to smell it for too long. That’s over. I cook and can smell cooking just fine again – which is really good because we’re hosting Thanksgiving this year!
Goodluck! Hopefully it doesn’t hit too hard..

Food adversions started at week 5, mild nausea around week 6, things started getting bad after that until about week 12, nausea medication made me feel sicker and I was extremely limited in what I could eat – cheese and watermelon was my best friend. Mostly everything subsided at week 12/13. After that, I was only getting nausea and vomiting about once a week until about week 25 ish. If I don’t eat regularly it comes back. Everyone is different.

I think it started around week 5 or 6. I get mild nausea or queasiness if my stomach is empty and also when I’m done eating. It’s not regular and I haven’t had to throw up yet. Fried or greasy food makes the nausea worse. I’m currently 10 weeks.

With my son, I was never nauseous. It was the easiest, most pleasant pregnancy. Now 2 years later, I’m pregnant with my daughter and oh gosh. I started getting nauseous and having food aversions around 7 weeks. It got *better* around 15-16 weeks, but even now at 22 weeks I still have my moments of nausea and there are a lot of foods I can’t even look at. It’s such a mind game!
