  • every pregnancy is different in many ways....some people have every symptom, some people have none, some people have this and just got very lucky :)

  • I didn't get morning sickness either but I did feel a little queasy in the evening after dinner...but not enough to run to the toilet! But I was the only one in my group of girlfriends that didn't get morning sickness.

  • was pregnant twice and never had it at all. My sister had it the whole time she was pregnant!
    I also didn't have swollen feet or ankles or whatever it is- and only had heartburn a little with my first. I was lucky : )

  • I don't think it's that rare, it's just that morning sickness makes those of us who've had it so miserable you hear a lot about it. No one shares their good experiences, or at least not that much, but the bad experiences make the best stories that you tell over and over again.

  • Nah I barely had any at all either. Consider yourself lucky!

  • I have not had any so far, either. My doc said it was nothing at all to worry about. And I have read a LOT of the pregnancy books and checked tons of sites. Most women DO get morning sickness (due to a slow down in the digestive system as it tries to snag ALL the nutrients out of the food for your growing baby). However, they almost all said that up to 20 or 25% of women get no morning sickness at all.

  • I only had a bit of late afternoon nausea with #2. that was the only morning sickness for all three pregnancies - thank god!
