  • I have heard that stronger morning sickness in women who have a history of miscarriage is a good sign since the sickness is because of your body reacting to being pregnant. But I'm not real sure how accurate that is.
    Best wishes for you!!!

  • I had horrible morning sickness and still miscarried last year. I have had 2 out of 4 prior pregnancies with NO morning sickness that resulted in healthy babies. If you have no history of multiple miscarriages then I wouldn't worry too much!

  • All three of my pregnancies I've been horribly sick and had perfectly healthy pregnancies and babies, so I guess it might be true. But I've also know people that had next to no symptoms and were healthy too.

  • I didn't have any symptoms with my first 2 and they were amazing pregnancy's no complications and they were both full term. When I got pregnant with my twins I had almost every complications in the book and I ended up having them at 24 was soo bad that my first born twin son passed away 5 days after birth. My surviving twin son is doing amazing. I'm pregnant again and I had a few complications at the beggining, like naseau and I've had complications as well. I'm 31 weeks and I'm on bed rest due to a shortning cervix and spotting. So I don't know how true that statement is but I did hear that symptoms are always good, they mean that your pregnancy is still continuing.

  • Well when I was pregnant. I had no morning sickness, no back pain, very little heartburn, a very easy pregnancy until the last two months when I developed pre-eclampsia. I had a healthy 9 lb 11 oz baby girl.

    My friend had horrible morning sickness, threw up every day for 2 months and had a miscarriage. So I'm going to have to say that more symptoms = better pregnancy is false.

  • I'm a high risk pregnancy and had trouble getting pregnant to begin with. My only symptom till 10 weeks was tiredness. Then I was so sick I needed to be hospitalized for dehydration a couple of times. That didn't go away till he was born.

    So in my experience, yes, it does mean a better pregnancy. But I've known many that have no symptoms and their babies have been just fine.

  • Supposedly strong morning sickness means higher HCG levels which does indicate a strong pregnancy.

    But my 1st pregnancy I had ZERO morning sickness and have a 3½ year old healthy boy as a result of it.
    2nd pregnancy I had nausea much worse than the 1st but miscarried twins at 8w4d.
    3rd pregnancy again I had all day nausea and miscarried at 8w4d.
    4th (current pregnancy) I felt the worst of all but I was supplementing progesterone to support the pregnancy and I am 20w2d today.

    Trust me I know what it's like to worry every second of the day because of a m/c. My dh and I are within the 5% of couples in the entire world to have multiple consecutive miscarriages. Only 1% go on to have a 3rd consecutive and even less have more. Good news is that with only one m/c your chances of having another really don't increase. I would say if you are still feeling sick at 12w there is a good chance you have very high hcg levels and are safe.
