I had awful morning sickness with both of my boys. But I’m the only one in the family that did. Everyone else had a great pregnancy with no sickness at all. I was super jealous lol. But they went on to have very healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.

I only puked 3 times during my pregnancy and felt queasy on and off for the first 14 weeks, but it wasn’t that bad.  Throughout my pregnancy,  if I smelled garlic,  I felt like I was going to throw up. It sucked for my husband’s family because we spent a lot of time at their house and we are all huge garlic lovers lol. If I was around, they couldn’t cook with it. My husband’s youngest sister had no morning sickness either,  and her pregnancy was just fine with no issues. Congrats on your pregnancy !

I had basically no morning sickness, just occasional waves of nausea when hungry (I could eat and it would get better)- I never even felt close to throwing up. I had the same worries as you, but I have a healthy 6 month old boy 🙂 Don’t stress the lack of nausea and just enjoy feeling good!

mrsclaymls :  I’ve heard that same thing but I guess it isn’t true because my mom had no sickness at all with me. She said she didn’t even know she was pregnant with me till 3 months. Which I think is crazy 😝 but I guess it happens 🤷‍♀️

I never had morning sickness. If I didn’t eat I would get a bit queasy, but that’s it. I couldn’t cook meat for a while, the smell during cooking ruined my appetite but if it was brought to me prepared, I had no problem eating it.

Try not to worry until there is a reason to worry. Easier said than done, but do try.

Same as you, I had a few mild waves of nausea early on, but that’s it. No puking, no food aversions, and had a healthy pregnancy

I didn’t have any morning sickness for the first 14 weeks. From 14-17 weeks I had a few short spells first thing in the morning where I got sick (exactly 4, about a week apart each time haha). Otherwise I found pregnancy to be physically pretty easy. Also, besides two friends who were extremely sick the whole way, most of my friends have had minimal to no morning sickness, and have had healthy pregnancies.

My first pregnancy I had nausea from weeks 6-10, but never actually vomitted- totally healthy, normal pregnancy and baby. Only about 4.5 weeks along right now but hoping to be lucky enough to escape it again this time around lol

mrsclaymls :  I had no morning sickness at all for either baby. Even when I thought I might have morning sickness this time, it turned out I was just plain sick.  It’s not a sign of anything, all women are different.  My toddler is obviously fine and the one I have now is ending the 2nd trimester with enough kicks to make up for taking forever to be noticed moving.  Thank your lucky stars and look to the future!

I had brutal morning sickness from weeks 6 – 16, with intermittent vomiting since then (although no nausea, which makes it harder to gauge when I’m actually going to throw up…). All of my friends ‘loved being pregnant’, because none of them had any nausea or vomiting, which they didn’t me tion until after I was pregnant. 

Fetal heartrate is a better indicator for your baby’s health than morning sickness. If you didn’t get it, be glad! And eat some garlic for me 😉

Feel lucky you don’t have nausea! I can’t even imagine having hyperemesis. I see enough women come through with that issue and often wonder how they can support nourishing themselves when they can’t keep anything down, let alone a growing baby. Many of my friends never had any nausea and all have perfectly healthy babies. I had evening nausea like clock work at 4pm for only the 3rd month, thank goodness. After that I felt the best emotionally and physically for the rest of my pregnancy probably because I slept A LOT! It was seriously the best time when 4 hr afternoon naps on my days off was allowed and enjoyed. I had a super healthy, happy, calm, 9lb baby boy! 🤣

You have absolutely nothing to worry about!!! Congrats mama!!

mrsclaymls :  I had pretty bad nausea until 16 weeks and my sense of smell was crazy so my stomach would turn at almost any smell but I managed to only throw up here and there (not on a daily basis). My symptoms were better some days, where I felt completely fine, which would worry me as well but then it’d come back. 

Try not to stress because every pregnancy is different and just be happy you’re smooth sailing so far through your first trimester and congrats!
