Dear Breastfeeding Moms, Is It Really That Hard to Cover Up?

When Did You Have Morning Sickness?

Some pregnant women endure morning sickness during the first few weeks of being with child and others get it only in the third trimester. There are also women who avoid it all together. Sixty-eight percent of lilsugar readers said they had at least some morning sickness while they were expecting. If and when did you?

First pregnancy I had the all puking all the time thing going for the first trimester, got free of it second trimester, only to have it come back in the third trimester. Second pregnancy I only had it in the first trimester but it took me until halfway through the second to have any appetite at all. Not nauseous, just not hungry---had to push myself to eat.

I'm 10 weeks into my first pregnancy and no sickness at all so far -- just damn tired, like fall-asleep-while-walking-down-the-street tired. Tell me: Am I in the clear? Will I get sick if I haven't yet?

First trimester was hell. It got so bad, I landed in the hospital for almost a week. I'm in my second now and loving every minute of it, feeling great!

I suppose for me, it was only during the first trimester, however(!), it should have been called all-day/night sickness. It was bad. :(

Last pregnancy I had it right up to the day I delivered. Argh! So far this pregnancy it has been about the same, with 29 weeks to go. Luckily in Canada we have Diclectin (an anti-nausea drug), which was and it a life and sanity!

No morning sickness. Might be lucky genes. My mom said she didn't have any morning sickness during her pregnancies either.

All-day sickness, no matter what I eat or how often. I had it for the first 22 weeks with my first. I am 19 weeks with my second and I still have it lightly. The good news is that last time I LOVED my 3rd trimester. After throwing up for six months I was just so happy to feel sane that I was glowing and never felt the need to try to force myself into labor. I hope that will be the same too.

I was sick very early on (like week 5) and then a good way through the second trimester (week 21 or 22) With my first, it was worst in the morning but still lasted all day. With this one, I was sick in the morning, I'd get a little reprieve in the afternoon and then from 3 on I was SUPER SICK. I still get nauseated but I haven't thrown up in almost 3 weeks. Woo hoo!

I didnt have any morning sickness, however, in the beggining I often felt like crap becuase I didnt realize how much I needed to eat either. My husband and I were both sporadic eaters and in the early months, 0-3, it was a very hard adjustment for me to start eating constantly. lol, then around 4 months i was ravenous constantly anyway, so it was fine.

I wish grazing all day would've worked for me. With the boys (first two) I had "all day sickness" until just into my second trimester with it being worst at night. With my daughter I couldn't even look at food until 22 weeks, and even then it was sporadic until my third trimester.

I'm in my first trimester and I've had a little bit, but nearly as bad as some of the horror stories I've heard. The doctor told me to keep something in my stomach at all times and that seems to help a lot.

I don't really consider it morning sickness. I just didn't realize I NEEDED to graze all day to stay feeling well. Once I figured that out I never felt sick.

Which pregnancy? Seriously, is there any way to get these to allow for multiple votes for those of us who actually have more than one child? :)
