I am the same way i refuse to throw up it scares me i will hold it in(I know it sounds gross) or do watever I have to do not to throw up. the few times i have thrown up which have been 3 in my whole life i blackout and faint. And wen I found out I was prego and getting nauseous I was terrified! But found out that eating lollipops helped my nausea go away. And avoiding greasy foods that's when I felt the worse. And smelling rubbing alcohol or purell watever you have handy. I am 35 Weeks prego and never threw up. By the time ur about 3 months your stomach problems should go away.good luck!
