  • You could or it could stop soon. We can not tell you that. Only time will tell you what happens.

  • eat more protein and decrease your carbs to natural source only (like say an orange)

  • More protein worked for me also.
    There's no way to know how long you will have it for.
    Good luck.

  • You'll here this over and over..every pregnancy is different. One I had morning sickness from 6 weeks to 15 weeks...none after that. One I had not so much as a bit of nausea the whole time and the last I was sick from day one to delivery. I did find with the ones I was sick with if I tried to start my day slower. Dry crackers and avoided certain foods or smells it helped a lot.

  • My friend swear by ginger for morning sickness (or any upset stomach, but this specifically). She couldn't handle actual ginger so she took ginger pills. I didn't go anywhere without saltines and dr. pepper. I don't know why but I never throw up that combination. I'll be using the ginger pills next time though. I'd rather just not be nauseous and be able to eat, then like off crackers, feel like I'm dying and just not throw up. Hopefully your morning sickness ends soon. I was around seven months when mine finally quit.

  • I had hyperemesis gravidarum which is severe morning sickness. With my first the MS started at 5 wks and stopped around 20 wks and started back up at 32 wks. With my 2nd it started at 5wks and lasted until 2 wks after I had my son. Then with my last child it started at 4 wks and lasted until 3 days after delivery. I was on the generic for Zofran with the last one.

    Generally they say once you hit around the 2nd trimester you'll start to feel better. A lot of women who have HG will have a rest during those few months. Good luck to you!

  • I had it the WHOLE pregnancy with my first. I have hyperemesis again this time, but it is not as bad. Although, I do take a zofran every morning still.
