  • LOL yep perfectly ok, I had no morning sickness through all 4 pregnancies, didn't love the smell of cooking meat, but otherwise all okay, no nausea, not awful cramps, Braxton Hicks were gorgeous tight feelings like an inside out hug not uncomfortable, If the baby is happy, moving or has a good heartbeat when Dr listens stop worrying about it. This is YOUR story, no-one elses.

  • I think its ok. I know it would alarm me because with my first pregnancy I had none and it ended in a miscarriage. But I don't think no sickness is a sign of miscarriage. You should be fine.

  • My aunt and step mum both said they didn't have morning sickness. And all three kids came out ok. Aunt had 2, step mum had one. Lucky, lucky women both of them, as I have semi-severe morning sickness. On Zofran.

  • I didn't have a single moment of morning sickness with either of my kids.

  • No morning sickness here. I had a perfect pregnancy, no complications at all. I now have a perfect 14 month old baby boy!

  • i think like 80% of women DO have morning sickness. so that leaves 20% who don't. i didn't with my first pregnancy, but did w/ my second.

  • I am so jealous!! Consider yourself very fortunate! As far as having morning sickness with subsequent pregnancies, my morning sickness has been worse with each subsequent kid.

  • its totally normal. I don't know the percentages, but it doesn't mean anything. you're no more likely to get it with your third than any other.

  • Very lucky but totally normal. Each person is different when it comes to their pregnancies. I had really bad morning sickness with my first and then just slight nausea with my second.
