    Hi,

    Just want to know I'm not alone (hopefully I am, wouldn't wish this on anyone, but still!)

    Since the day I was 12 weeks I've been wretching, or gagging, if I've not eaten/drunk anything in the last 20 minutes. Also at any smells... and I mean any, other than cleaning products (household and toiletries)... I think it's mostly this that's keeping me from eating anything other than Doritos and Wispas!

    I've only actually vomited once, the night I hit 12 weeks (cry?! Did I! I'd been waiting for that miracle of the 12 week mark since I was 5 weeks!) but it's sooooo unpleasant, especially if I've not been able to eat/drink enough at work (I teach littlies.)

    Have looked online and kept reading here, but have so far not seen anyone else mention it.

    Any advice? Thanks!

    My sisters Mum had this the entire 40 weeks of pregnancy. Anything would set her off, a smell, a sight. All part of the total fun that is mornin' sickness :)

    Its at times like this I'm glad I don't have a sense of smell lol.

    Dunno how to fix it, but hope it subsides soon :)

    I'm 25 weeks now and still feel sick every morning (least I'm not throwing up any more!) This has been teamed with gagging at loads of things, including things I have seen and heard on tv as well as a particular song by Beyonce!

    Thanks girls, I'm somewhat comforted though sorry for those who suffer too!

    So yes, I can't go shopping, as all the supermarkets round here have chickens roasting, poor OH!

    Also, my food options have become so few because, like PrettyBonk, whatever I've eaten the day before, I can't have again... and it's been weeks now!

    :hugs:
