I'm 11w1d pregnant and I have never had morning sickness or anything close to it for any of my pregnancies. But over the last 5 days I have found that I feel slightly sick in the morning. And I've noticed now that if I go more than 3 hours without some food I get a big headache and just feel crappy.
Can I be a late bloomer? or possibly do I just have a little bug right now? Also I find some foods I can eat and feel fine and then others that the minute I finish I feel like I could get sick. I thought it was that I was eating too much, but I had a great breakfast of eggs, ham, toast and potatoes and felt great. Then for lunch a small bowl of pasta and then felt sick the rest of the afternoon.
I am 24 weeks pregnant and I didn't get any sickness until I was about 16 weeks. I got sick around noon everyday for about 3 weeks. So yeah it is possible to have morning sickness later in pregnancy. Hang in there and always have ginger ale and saltines with you! Good luck
Unfortunatelly you can get morning sickness at any point of your prego and it may last as long as few days to a whole 9 months! I am 28 weeks and have had 24/7 sickness since week 5. My Dr. put me on medication (Zofran) and I am stil taking it til this day and according my Dr. it will not go away until the baby is born. Had nothing like this with my first prego at all. Good luck...
People keep asking me if I have morning sickness and I keep saying no because my idea of what that is equals nausea and vomiting. But I feel BLAH! every day from about 2-4 p.m. I don't feel nauseaus, but I feel like if I threw up I might feel so much better. It is kind of a feeling like when your food just isn't digesting and it is just sitting there making you on the verge of sick. Is THAT morning sickness? Just a general malaise? (I'm 7.5 wks)
I'm in week 14, and just started getting the "sick" feeling really bad about two weeks ago. I try to keep something to snack on handy. Most of the time I feel fine, but then I'll smell something and it will make me nauseous (ESPECIALLY the smell of gas fumes! ugghhh!)
I keep Ritz crackers in a ziploc, and have them in the car and at the office in case I need to eat something but have no appetite. Saltines just don't cut it for me. In soup they're fine, but plain? yuck! :-P lol
I also keep snack cakes handy for a sugar lift! :-)
Hang in there, I'm sure you'll have good days as well as bad...but you'll make it!
With my first child I had mild morning sickness from week 10-16. With my second child I threw up all the time until he was out. It was great for keeping that weight gain down, but I think I prefer the first!! Every pregnancy is different.
It's not overly unusual. Many women experience nausea toward the end of their pregnancy. It is usually only problematic if you are unable to eat properly as a result, or are vomiting and potentially becoming dehydrated. If either of those things are the case, it is important to contact your Dr. Congrats on coming close to the end of your pregnancy.
