    Morning sickness

    Does all pregnant women get morning sickness? If I'm not vomiting, is it normal? I'm only feeling sick when I'm eating food that I don't feel like eating. Tomatoes are my fav now.

    Not every pregnant woman gets morning sickness and not every woman with morning sickness actually vomits. Symptions are very individual. However, if you are worried about your symptoms or losing a lot of weight/ cannot keep enough fluids down you should talk to your doctor. Here are some useful links on the topic:

    I dont have any signs of morning sickness or nausea yet and almost 6 weeks. If i am hungry I feel a bit weird so I just make sure I keep eating. I am certainly not vomiting thank god (not sure how I would explain that at work) and apparently not having signs of nausea is fine. I've increased my protein intake which was done to combat bloating so perhaps thats helped. I do get indigestion and bloating, especially at night if I have eaten too much. I am usually a huge eater but have actually had to reduce my portion sizes and eat more often.

    I didn't really vomit when I was pregnant - I think just maybe once or twice in each pregnancy. I did have "food aversion" though where I wasn't really hungry and just felt a bit off for those first couple of months. I actually lost a couple of kg in my first trimester both times - not because I was "sick" but just because I had no appetite.

    I think I have the same thing, I don't really have an appetite and I am definitely selective these days about what I eat when and have found I can't eat too much. I also notice I have a really strong sense of smell these days which can make me feel a little off colour.

    It is as elle wrote - a different experience for many women.
    I experienced morning sickness until 2 months into my pregnancy.
    I threw up anything I ingested from water to all else I ate.
    This continued until the first week of the 8th month.
    And with every regurgitation came heartburn.
    At some point I thought I would die, because I was puking more than 4 times a day to a point wherein I was afraid of eating and the heartburn had me in tears.
    As if that wasn't enough, I had excessive saliva. I needed to spit every few minutes.
    That coupled with the constant puking and bad heartburn really gave me a tough time.

    All the best with your pregnancy and may God bless you and keep you strong until the end.
