You sounded like I did. I am almost 16 weeks pregnant and did not start with the m/s until the middle of the eighth week/start of the ninth. I was so worried and just waiting for it to start to prove to me all was okay...

Welllll, 2months later, it has just started to go away,,,and I say GOOD RIDDANCE! I have been so sick (not throwing up too much, but just nauseous ALLLLL DAY and ALLLL night)

Good luck, I hope you are luck like the previous poster, but if not, don't worry it is on it's way!!!:)

Your safe...I was ill for a few days with my dd, and vomitted for 16 weeks with my son.  It could go either way, and doesn't dictate whether or not you are having a healthy pregnancy.  Relax about it...every single pregnancy is different.

I know it makes you wonder if things are going well, and you expect to get it, but I have several friends that never went through any or much sickness at all.  Me, I had morning sickness before my af was late, with all of my pregnancies and lost considerable weight, it went on through to the 5th month with my first son and with this one I got a little lucky and it ended around 18 weeks.  It was very hard for me to eat and even now at 24 weeks have had a hard time putting on any wieght yet.  Be thankful that you are feeling well, don't worry, you'll feel pregnant soon enough, congrats, I hope you continue to feel well!

Im nearly 19 weeks and i had no morning sickness either, just nausea every now and again.  I thought it was strange but i did a search on the internet and it said that some women get it some don't.  I'd say we've been pretty lucky!! :)

You are so lucky! My mother-in-law never had any m/s with either of her pregnancies except when she vaccuumed. Congratulations on your pregnancy and on your lack of morning sickness. I am almost nine weeks and have been heaving constantly since 5w6d. Best wishes!

My best friend is being induced tomorrow morning and I don't think she ever threw up at all during her entire pregnancy.  There were a few times she got sick to her stomach, but for the most part she breezed through these past 9 months with no majorly annoying symptoms.  Sounds like you may just be one of the lucky ones!  :)

Yes, it is perfectly normal not to have morning sickness.  I never threw up during my pregnancy.  A really great Home Economics teacher told me how to avoid morning sickness.  Keep a glass of water and a few biscuits or cookies next to your bed.  Before you jump out of bed in the morning, assess your nausea situation and if you think you might be quesy, eat the biscuits slowly as you drink the water, and wait.  Don't be in a hurry, just wait until your stomach is settled.  

Some pregnant women throw up every day and other women never do. Throwing up takes more nutrients out of the body than just the food lost, and it can cause permanent damage to teeth and gums.  Just know that not throwing up is better for your health and the health of your baby.  Count your blessings, and be thankful you are not 'normal'.

Although it may not feel like it since almost 80% of pregnant women experience morning sickness, it really is perfectly normal to not have to deal with it at all!

There are many reasons why you might not be feeling that pregnancy hallmark.  I'm 8 weeks from delivering baby #5 and have done LOTS of research on morning sickness - both the "whys" and the "why nots"!

I put together an article about causes for morning sickness - but it is very helpful in figuring out why you may not have it, too.  For each cause, the opposite may be true for you.

I am 8 weeks today, and haven't vomited once! I was really concerned because they say morning sickness shows a healthy pregnancy with a lesser risk of miscarriage, but then I also heard, some women get it and some don't.
