    Is anyone else having a hard time with 'morning' sickness? I am 7wk 3 days and i feel sick most of the time! It is awful. I am actually sick maybe once or twice a day on a bad day. I am wondering if it is normal for it to be this bad! I have lost my appetite too so worry whether i am even eating enough! Would like to hear how others are dealing with this!

    It hit me had 3 days ago. I've actually been bed ridden, unable to go to work, unable to eat. Last night I finally kept down some broth. My doc said to just keep pushing fluids and to try bland foods. This morning I had a slice of plain bread, which has left me queasy, but so far it's staying down.

    From what I understand this is just what we have to go through. I get minor relief at times from sea sickness wrist bands, ginger ale, and ginger candy.

    If you find you are unable to keep food or water down call your doctor.

    I do feel for you both! Mine started at about 6 weeks and I just felt sick all the time but wasn't actually sick that much. Then around about 9 weeks the nausea feeling wasn't as bad but I started to actually be sick more, then by 11/12 weeks I wasn't being sick so often.

    Now im 13 weeks and I am still being sick sometimes (once every 3-4 days) but I do feel so much better and have started to get my appetite back.

    Just wanted to say I know how horrible it is, but you should start to feel better around 12-14 weeks. Unfortunately it's just all part of the joys of being pregnant :)

    If you can't keep anything down then call your doc, they can prescribe anti-sickness pills if you are really bad. :hugs:

    Horrible isn't it? :hugs: I find that regular small meals calm my nausea. I know eating is the last thing you feel like doing but trust me, it works x x
