Early Pregnancy Morning Sickness

I’m 5 weeks pregnant and already have a week of morning sickness behind me, yikes. So far just nausea (without the vomiting). I know 8-9 weeks tends to be the peak. Just wondering if those of you that had morning sickness really early ended up with more severe symptoms as time went on? As opposed to someone whose morning sickness started later like 6-8 weeks? I know everyone is different, just curious.  I’m ready for whatever comes, but it would be nice to prepare myself a little mentally.  I read that morning sickness CAN be a sign of a healthy pregnancy so I’ll take it!

    Morning sickness =/= health of a pregnancy. Some women get morning and very sadly miscarry; other women never get morning sickness and carry full term.

      Just be prepared for anything, it may go away and never come back. It may go away and reappear, you may get it constantly mild, or it can get so severe that you need to be hospitalized.  Unfortunately no one can tell you - other experiences have no bearing on what you will experienc .  
  • I am pretty sure I threw up the morning (and all subsequent mornings) I found out I had a loss a 14 weeks.

    this time, I have gotten sick once and only have relatively mild nausea, as far as we know, all is healthy and well.  

    There really is no way to prepare yourself for terrible morning sickness.  Best thing is to eat small frequent meals and keep the heartburn under control.

  • You are right, everyone is different. I never really experienced morning sickness, just had to eat frequently to combat nausea. My sister was very sick even with her miscarriage,  until she was placed on Zofran. But she needed it her entire pregnancy.  My sister in law started getting sick early and is still extremely sick off and on at almost 20 weeks. She also has Hyperemesis Graviderum (morning sickness to the highest extreme). She's been in the er twice to receive fluids. I will add that usually when I first find out I'm pregnant (this is my third) I'm afraid of getting sick and I think that actually makes me FEEL sick! Not saying it's in your head, that's just me lol. Prepare for anything! I agree with eating small amounts of food frequently, keep mints and crystallized ginger on hand for nausea, and try any of the Pink Stork products on Amazon.
