  • I did with my first. But it gradually turned into morning sickness only.

  • I was really congested and ended up with bloody noses through my pregnancy. Its not usually an initial sign but everyone is different. My initial sign was falling asleep when I was driving. I couldn't stay awake to save my life.

  • I had a "cold" throughout my entire pregnancy. Whenever I get colds, I constantly throw up because I can't stand the feeling of mucous in my throat. Then throwing up would make me throw up even more. LOL.

    There are always viruses going around, so if you think you need to, go see a doctor and get their opinion. It can't hurt, only help.
