  1. How soon after conception can you begin to experience morning sickness?
    None of my coworkers seem to know. Thanks!

    Morning sickness typically is from weeks 6-12. Of course, many times it is "all day sickness" and can be shorter or longer than that.

    With my first, I started with the sickness at 6 weeks and 5 weeks with my daughter. Everyone will be a bit differnet!

    I never had morning sickness, I was just lucky.

    I think my morning sickness (actually morning, noon and night :chuckle ) started at conception or within a couple of days-turns out I had hyperemesis gravidarum with my first pregnancy.

    With my 2nd pregnancy, the nausea didn't start until I was about 7-8 weeks-I've had hyperemesis this time too.

    First, -- about 10 days after conception

    Second -- five weeks.

    Managed daily bouts right up to the end. Even on the delivery table but I don't suppose that one counts!!

    With both of my children morning sickness started at about 8 weeks. With my first it lasted until I was about 22 weeks, I would get up and throw up every morning. I had to make sure my stomach always had something in it or I would be nauseated, once I was nauseated it was only a matter of time before I would be throwing up.

    Second child, I was nauseated almost the entire pregnancy. Second time around I rarely threw up. Everything made me nauseated...I could hardly eat or drink anything...a couple of times my doctor threatened to keep in the hospital because I was so dehydrated.

    My 22 YO daughter is almost 3 months' pregnant now, and she just stopped throwing up. It started practically at the moment of conception, and it wasn't morning sickness, it was all-day sickness. Poor kid, she HATES to vomit worse than anything, and any day she threw up only 2 or 3 times was a good day.

    With my first two pregnancies, the 'urkies' started almost immediately and continued for 3 months the first time, and with the entire second pregnancy it never did stop. The third time, I couldn't even believe I was pregnant---I got sick only once---and with the last two I wasn't sick a minute......I only did things like fall asleep in my lunch or in the middle of a sentence. :chuckle Lord, I was tired.......with the last one especially, I basically sleepwalked through the first few months. It was nice NOT throwing up, though!
