I have vomited my way through my last 3 pregnancies. We were hoping to time this pregnancy for before school started for that reason. And we were successful in that, I'm 12 weeks tomorrow. But the vomiting has never started. And it's disconcerting!!! Everyone is telling me "oooh maybe it's girls this time" which would of course be awesome but after 4 boys I'm not holding my breath. And really, our own sporting team would be pretty cool right? Tounge1.gif

So tell me, what were your symptoms like from pregnancy to pregnancy? Always the same or did your body mix it up?

I puked my butthole out with the first 3, all boys, then the susequent 3, never puked at all, all girls. I either got used to the hormones and they didn't effect me anymore, or I just don't tolerate boys as much. This time around I feel slightly nauseaus if I don't eat regularly, but otherwise feel ok, apart from being soooo tired.

I only "just" sneak through as a LF, well actually I don't yet. Let's call me a LF in the making.

#1 on and off nausea, not too bad, was still able to work - girl

#2 puked my guts up, dry retching constantly - ended in Missed m/c @12 weeks

#3 no m/s, only a tiny tummy churn if I was really hungry, worked all through, hardly even tired, I even rang my dr because I had no symptoms! - Girl

#4 constant nausea, no puking, felt pretty awful though - girl

#5 so far nausea that wont go away, feel really crook every now and then but still functioning! - I'll tell you what it is in September. original.gif

# 1 (1st husband) - DS 1 - just a wee bit of feeling sick, dont think I ever actually was, prob lasted only a few weeks
#2 (2nd husband) -DS 2 -  felt so sick, on the couch for days!!  Carried differently & so convinced myself it was a little girl .. but no
#3 - late miscarriage, another wee boy - but felt well & good all the way until 26 weeks sad.gif
#4 - saw an OB for this one, wasnt allowed to have scan for sex - but was almost identical to last 2 pregnancies (not sick that I can remember) & DS3 arrived.

another who doesn't belong here, but i'll share my experience anyways Tounge1.gif

DS- spewed my guts up for the first 3/4 months. day and night. ALL day and night.

DD1 - had nausea, vomited, but that was purely because I produced a lot of extra phlegm (mmm) during pregnancy with her and the feeling of that in my throat made me vomit - not the actual MS.

DD2 - same as DD1 original.gif

5 pregnancies for me - b,b,g,b,b .... all exactly the same. Severe MS till about 20 weeks. Then the daily nausea and occasional vomiting comes back at about 32 weeks.

Congrats though! I hope it stays away original.gif

My first 2 pregnancies (singleton girls) I had lots of MS, and was vomitting until 27 wks. My 3rd pregnancy (twin boys) I didn't even realise I was pregnant until 12 weeks, no MS at all.

My first 3 babies, nothing to complain about, had some very mild nausea with #2 and #3.

This time I felt horrid from week 4 to week 10.  I had it so much easier than many others, only 6 weeks in total, and only nausea, no vomiting, but it was constant.  24/7, from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to sleep I wished that I could just throw up and get it over with.  Didn't have anything like that with the first 3.

All 4 are boys biggrin.gif

I put it down to my age lol.  Been almost 8 years between #3 and now #4.  Maybe my 37 year old body doesn't cope as well with pregnancy as my younger self did tongue.gif

I had 7 girls in a row and had ms with all ranging from moderate to severe. Last pg was easy with extremely minor ms and only in the evening. A total change for me - baby was a boy.     I am 12 weeks now and feel revolting 24/7 with constant nausea. I am thinking another girl but I am still bf my youngest and that may have something to do with it. I find I feel worse after feeding. Anyhow it's interesting and I may get a gender clue after my u/s tommorow.
