I'm 9 weeks as of tomorrow and am having really bad pregnancy symptoms.
Really bad nausea / MS since week 6. Each day feels like a month. I've not actually thrown up yet but wish I could if it would make me feel better. It doesn't seem to go at any point in the day. The bad taste in my mouth makes it worse so sucking sweets or Chupa Chups helps a little! But nothing else really. I'm doing everything else that is usually advised - ginger tea, eating little and often, carbs, acupressure bands etc... I'm resigned to the fact that this is it for a while anyway!!
I just wondered what the typical experience was for everyone out there - when did your MS ease off? If there is light at the end of the tunnel (less than 9 months) it makes it easier!
Also - really bad headaches. Does anyone else have these and got any good tips?
Im in the same boat love. Please, please, please make sure you drink lots of water and challenge yourself to eat because as i posted on another thread, i spent the night in hospital last night on a drip because of dehydration and starvation. It was sooooo not fun. Hope you feel better soon! x
mine wore off....tomorrow I hope ! Seriously though I am also 9 weeks and have been suffering since wk 6. My nausea seemed worse wks 7-8 although I threw up for the first time today but the nausea isn't as bad?!? That or I've just got used to it! I know what you mean about the nausea though it is by far worse than throwing up. I think for most people symptoms go at around 12 wks but for some they last a little longer. You should, however, have lots more energy and generally feel not so crappy in the 2nd tri so this should help even if your sickness continues. I'm convinced I'll be one of these unlucky few who have it for 9 months xxxxx
My m/s seemed to kick in about 5 weeks. It was constant nauseau/queasiness all day & night. It seemed to be the worst last week (vomitted a few times which I hadn't before). But the last couple of days it seems to have gotten better. I still have to stick to very bland foods but I don't have the constant feel like I'm going to throw up at any minute feeling. Throwing up seemed to only make it better for about 5 mins. I was having a hard time with drinking liquids, even water, & really started forcing myself over the weekend to drink more... so not sure if this has helped or if maybe my m/s is starting to get better at 10 weeks. I hope so! But wouldn't you know it... being that this is my first time pregnant I've got the tiny little worrying voice inside of me wondering if everything's okay. But we did see the heartbeat on the u/s at 8 weeks & I do still have all of the other pregnancy symptoms I had before including the new one of headaches all the time which seemed to happen right at the same time I got the reduced m/s symptoms. Go figure!
Thanks girls. Always helps to know you're not the only one, if that makes sense.
And yes I do know what you mean about worrying when you don't have symptoms! I have only had one day where I have felt ok in the last few weeks and no sooner did I realise that, then I started to worry!!
Hopefully we will all feel better in a couple of weeks.
