So I don't actually feel sick yet & I've forgotten when ive felt sick with my others .. I'm scared I'll be sick at work and not be able to hide it :/ .
Posted 30 June 2015 - 08:20 PM
Me too, me too! Thankfully I have my own office but I'll still need to
I've heard it can start right away but seems like it kicks in at around 6 weeks for most - joy!
Any other experiences with previous bubs, when did your morning sickness start? How long did it last? How bad was it? What tips can you offer to make it more manageable?
Anyone suffering at the moment?

My dr gave me script for Maxalon just incase I've heard mints and crackers help but nothing helped last time .
When will you tell your work ?
Posted 30 June 2015 - 08:29 PM
Oh dear, that sounds ominous - I hope something helps this time or even better, I hope morning sickness stays away this time!
Not too sure about when to tell work, I think I want to wait until 12 weeks. How about you?

Just dropping in from we are discussing (clearly to avoid packing boxes...) just to share what worked for me.
Mine kicked in officially at 6+1 (the day I had to drive early in the morning 2 hrs away for a gig - perfect timing!) I've heard 6 weeks is pretty common. Week 7 to 9 was by far the worst for me.
I got Maxalon because I was losing weight but it did nothing but make me sleep - be aware of this side effect if it does hit you at work! B6 worked for awhile (I broke the tablet into quarters and took some with each meal), and taking half a Restavit at night made me feel well enough in the morning to get some food in. Tiredness is the enemy - Restavit will help with this and makes sure you get a decent sleep. Nap when you can, it will help. Eat when you can, and keep your sugar levels up. Zofran was the only thing that got me through a couple of important gigs and staff meetings, but it's expensive, so I only used it when necessary.
Good luck and congrats ladies!

Thank you, RTM - that drive on the first day must have been, um, interesting. I think the advice of nap when you can and eat when you can is pretty important and I will try and keep that in mind, although I imagine there will be times I won't even be able to think straight.
And wow, you're nearly 20 weeks already - that sure did go fast!!

I vomited everyday from 8 weeks to 18 weeks with my first pregnancy. I used Blackmores ginger tablets to help.

OC, I know, I can't believe I'm halfway! When I was in the depths of MS I thought I'd never get to that magical glow part, but right now I feel pretty awesome. Much bigger than I thought I'd be at this point, but I feel good at least!

No real morning sickness yet, just moments of light nausea and gagging bow and again, like when I brush my teeth.
My boss had to know already due to past complications, I needed to tell her because this is affecting my duties.
I have been deathly tired though, even fell asleep in my lunch break yesterday!
Posted 01 July 2015 - 08:32 AM
Lozipop - I have heard ginger is good so will make sure I stock up on all forms! And wow, 8-18 weeks, I bet you were glad when you had that first day of no morning sickness.
RTM - glad to hear you came out the other side and feel awesome! Feel free to pop in with your tips anytime.
MrsJ - oh oh, falling asleep during your lunch break! Just goes to show that our bodies are very busy making sure our little one is snug in there. I hear the tiredness gets worse, fingers crossed it doesn't get too much worse for you.

So the 'morning sickness' hit at 9pm last night when I was almost sick after a cup of tea. I love tea...i live off tea...why must it be tea? I've tried to persist with 2 more cups today but they've both made me feel quite sick. Brekky made me feel unwell too.
Went for a walk and that helped a little, but otherwise been nauseous almost all day.
Its a good sign though, makes me feel pregnant at least lol.
Posted 06 July 2015 - 07:51 AM
What is this fresh hell?!? Anyone else sick all the time?
Posted 06 July 2015 - 08:51 AM
Nope, just tired and dizzy
That said, I'm ever so glad not to be experiencing the nausea I had last time (so far!!!) but I feel SO more exhausted all the damn time.
Although, my husband pointed out to me last night that I got pregnant with #1 when I had a stress fractured foot bone from a half marathon and thus did no training in first 12 weeks and that's not the case this time around and maybe the only reason it feels so much worse is that I'm still trying to train. Knowing that is not helping me cope with feeling like I have lost everything I've worked so hard for though
Hope the nausea passes quickly for everyone!!! Burger rings were a life saver for me, if that helps At times they were the only thing I could keep down! That and cream cheese sandwiches.

No morning sickness yet. Just a bit funny about some foods and really tired. Normally I eat anything and everything, but now I'm being a bit picky.
I'm really hoping I can go through this without morning sickness!
Posted 07 July 2015 - 09:39 PM
Sounds crazy but I'm still not getting morning sickness yet worried something is wrong .
Posted 08 July 2015 - 06:58 AM
No morning sickness, more or less some nausea when I get hungry. I need to go to the shops and buy some dried fruit snacks for in between cases
Posted 09 July 2015 - 01:38 AM
I had an awesome attack of morning sickness yesterday. I was rushing home and as I turned into our street the 'chicken seller' was doing his business. Blood and guts everywhere and I stood in the street and vomited. I looked up and had an audience of approximately 40 men. Fun times

Oh Poke I'm sorry that happened to you, but I must admit to just a tiny giggle - that's doing morning sickness in style!
I hope you feel better today!

I've got a bad cold at the moment (the perks of working in child care ) and woke up sick as a dog not sure if it's baby or cold .
Posted 13 July 2015 - 12:29 PM
So after feeling queezy for a couple of weeks now I had my first official spew this morning. It was very hard to slowly sneak away from my desk at work and not draw attention to myself while I was panicking I was going to spew everywhere! I made it to the toilet though.
How's everyone else going with morning sickness?
Posted 13 July 2015 - 12:35 PM
Oh blackbutterfly, I hope you can keep it under wraps for as long as you plan to. This is what's going to worry me if I get full blown MS as I need to run up two flights of stairs to get to the bathrooms at work. Also I work in retail, so no sneaky disappearances can be made. Good luck!
AFM, I've not had any Nausea since Saturday. Which is good, but I kind of liked getting the nausea purely because it ment everything was ok and It was a sign I'm still pregnant. Although I'm feeling great atm, it does nothing to stop me stressing. Haha.

Oh god and so it begins !! How will I be at work like this 😭
Posted 14 July 2015 - 07:18 AM
My morning after a very crap nights sleep - Wake up, cough, start dry reaching. Have just enough time to put my slippers on to save my feet from the cold tiles in the toilet... I'm kind of hoping it was a 1 off, but in saying that, I lost 10kgs from morning sickness with DS2, so it wouldn't be entirely in vain lol.
