I’ve also heard it has something to do with the placenta not being ready to provide for the baby so your progesterone levels are much, much higher… Unfortunately, even at 14 weeks, my placenta is still apparently not ready. I’m still puking. 🙁

LOL, I’m not worried about the baby. I’m sure it will take whatever it needs from my (plentiful) stores. I’m just tired of throwing up, feeling nauseous, not being able to eat anything, and my cravings have been non-existent so that makes it even harder to find something to eat.

I was sick until 22 weeks- it was awful! I don’t know how truthful it is but someone told me that because I’m having a girl there’s a possibility that her hormones mixing with my hormones made me sicker for longer? Hopefully it passes for you soon!

So weird!  I never got sick and I still drink coffee and eat a lot of fish and shellfish.  I think it has a lot to do with your body makeup to start with.  

 

Hope you all feel better soon!
