'You can feel at ease to know that morning sickness usually decreases or stops by the 14th week of pregnancy!' and I cameh ere for comfort. I am 6 weeks and not sure how I will get through my job (resource teacher) and I was miserable thinking it wouldn;t be over for another 6 weeks but this page says I should shoot for the next two months. Just venting. B6 not really working, and I am sick of eating and sipping stuff and not feeling better :( But, one thing that has helped is seeing I am not alone.

I'm almost 14 weeks and was recently hospitalized for hyperemesis (excessive nausea and vomiting). My ob let me go home after a week on a zofran pump and home health. It's better but not 100% :(

So I'm not trying to brag its more of is there something wrong with me cuz I'm 14 weeks and still no morning sickness. Its like I almost forget I'm pregnant cuz i never had symptoms other than not having a period. Sometime ill get a lil icky and gagy if baby doesn't like something. Is my body telling me something is wrong?

i'm also suffering terribly from sickness..nausea and vomiting...it is just HORRIBLE!! My 3yr old ds also didnt understand what's happening and would want to kiss me better..it's heart breaking! My sickness however has got better in time and now I am 12 weeks I am not sick everyday, I am still feeling nauseus but at least I am keeping some foods down. Sucking on tangy haribo sweets helps, and eating juicy red grapes helps too as I cannot keep water down either. I've tried EVERYTHING but nothing works, so I'm hoping it's just a question of time as it seems to be easing off a little as pregnancy progresses. Wish you all better real soon!! x

This is just a suggetion for anyone who may be having morning sickness. I'm 10 weeks and started having mornign sickness at around 8 weeks, only mine wasn't in the morning, it was all day!! I try to avoid taking medications and was looking for a natural way to reduce/eliminate the nausea and vomiting.
After a suggestion from a co-worker and internet research, I found out about Sea Bands, which uses accupressure. They have been a God-send!!! Previous to wearing them, I couldn't keep a thing down, and I had all day nausea. Now, I rarely get nausea or have the desire to vomit, and I can pretty much eat anything I want.
You can purchase them from CVS or Walgreens for about $10-$13. I don't sleep in them, but I do put them on immediately when I wake up and don't take them off until it's time for bed. My hubby's glad I got them because now he doesn't have to hold my hair while I'm vomiting..lol Make sure you read the directions and position them correctly on your wrist or they will feel a little uncomfortable after a while. Hope this helps anyone who may be getting morning sickness....

I am 10 weeks in and have had severe morning/all day and night sickness. I am taking generic Zofran and it just wasn't enough. I couldn't get up off of the couch b/c I was so sick. I read that Benadryl helps w/nausea so I took a half a tab an hour after taking my Zofran and it has helped tremendously. I have been doing it for two days now and I can actually eat, something I haven't really been able to do for 5 weeks. It has been a lifesaver!

Hi - I am suffering too... 10 weeks now and the nausea is AWFUL, especially of a night - I wish i could vomit and feel better but its just constant nausea and its getting me down a bit. I think what makes it worse is that I work then go home and have to lay down because I feel so bad, I cant go anywhere or do anything to help lift my spirits because Im just not up to it. Fingers crossed only a couple more weeks.

This is awfull...
everyday I wonder why people get pregnant...I mean I'm still thrilled to be pregnant, and feel incredibly lucky..but this morning sickness (or rather all day and all night sickness) is really draining me out! I'ld rather have pain somewhere. Nausea is so sneaky and irritating. I can't eat anything to make it feel better, I can't even keep down yoghurt!

Help! Is anyone on Avomine? I am about to start taking them tonight as I've got hyperemeses gravodorum. I just want to know the success rate? As in if you took them did both the vomiting and nausea go or did the nausea stay? Etc am soo sick I'm just looking for some light at the end of the tunnel! And my boss wants me back at work! Lol

MS is my nemesis. I was sick with my daughter for the whole 40 weeks, and I am 6 weeks with this baby and awfully sick. It's incredibly hard because it comes and goes all day and I still have to go about my day. I wish I never had to work!!

I am 7 weeks pregnant and not feeling great! Morning sickness, very tired - please tell me it gets better!

I'm 12 weeks and I was told that the MS should end around 12 to 13 weeks. Well, I hope this is true. I've been so sick. I don't even feel like myself anymore. All i do is sit in my bed praying that this MS will end soon. I was hoping I could find confort on this forum, but it doesn't seem too busy.:-(

This forum doesn't appear very active but I'm just here to gripe. I'm in bed for about the 7th straight day feeling increasingly nauseaus each day. Haven't brought up, just queasy, tired, stuffy, crampy, headachy et al. I'm self employed and used to being active so this is really tough on my spirit as well as my professional and personal life! Can someone remind me how awesome babies are and why I wanted this so bad?

I had tried everything - every dietary recommendation, B12/B6/Folic acid injections, acupuncture, electrode nausea bracelets.... everything! Finally, I went and saw a Naturopathic Doctor who did a homeopathic makeup and gave me a dose of Sepia 30c. It was miraculous! Within minutes I had color to my face, I was hungry, and I was happy for the first time in weeks. That evening I felt so wonderful. I had to re-dose a few times and eventually I took my constitutional remedy of NatMur 30C and that has been my savior for the past three days. No more puking, dry heaving, or feeling generally awful. I am still amazed! I recommend seeing a doctor who does homeopathy, unless you have experience yourself.

I'm taking generic Zofran and it is working great. I had to call around and found a HUGE difference in price for it. I was quoted over $350 at Walgreens for the highest, $68.84 at Sams Club and $17.30 at Costco. I about passed out over the difference. The same dose, the same drug, the same amount (30 pills). I recommend anyone who has to take it to call around and price check. If there is not a Costco close to you, I would mail order it through them with that type of savings. I'm also very upset with Walgreens who I have used pretty much my whole life for marking this drug out of my reach using them where I have to drive two hours to get it at a reasonable price. It's worth the drive for the savings but I should not have to.

My Dr. put me on half a unisom and 50mg B6. I only take it at night with this pregnancy, but took it twice a day with my last one. Maybe ask your Dr. about that option. They will know if it's right for you.

Hi there. I am really at the end of my tether. I'm 14 weeks with my first babe. I have been so so sick. I hardly ever vomit but I constantly have extreme nausea. From morning till evening and if I wake in the night, I feel terrible then too. It's constant. I had 3 weeks off work and it was just awful. It's so lonely lying in bed in so much discomfort. I couldn't do anything. I finally saw the specialist and he prescibed Zofran which has helped but sometimes doesn't seem to do anything. I'm too sick to worry about missing so much work. I have tired everything homeopathic remedies, Acupuncture even a Osteopath but nothing seems to work! The specialist said yeterday to try and accept it which does make sense and is better than what my GP said 'embrace it'. If people haven't been through it, they really do not understand. I say eat small amounts regularly and eat what you like! This moan has helped, thanks!Has B6 helped anyone?

I am on for my third pregnancy, I have a 7 and 8 year old, the sickness during both these pregnancies were extreme, the sickness/nausea is gradually getting worse with this pregnancy. During my first pregnancy I had tried the travel sickness bands, but found these totally hopeless, they would not stay on and moved around, today I my husband purchased the boots children bands, I am over the moon with them, they apply the right amunt of pressure, as I have such slim wrists, I know a lot of people say they dont work, (as I did with the adults ones) but the childrens ones have really worked for me, might be worth a try. Oh and Im just coming up 7 weeks pregnant.:)

I am almost 18 weeks pregnant and still vomiting:(
I keep thinking it will go away. The doctor has me on meds to ease the nausea and they work most of the time. But when I try to stop taking them I get so sick within the next 48 hours. I guess I have to take them for a few more weeks.
