  • It can last only a short while but can last the entire pregnancy.

  • It depends upon the person, and the pregnancy. For some, it subsides by the second trimester. For others, it's the entire pregnancy. For lucky ones, they never get it. I got lucky with my first. I never had it. With this one, I had horrible nausea from around week 7 to around week 9. I'm 10 weeks along now, and it seems to have subsided.

  • For my son last year only the first trimester, then a little towards the end of the third, since he was pressing on my stomache the whole time :) This time around with my daughter I have been sick every day, with 2 1/2 months left to go :( My worst day was a few weeks ago. My hubby was at work so I had to take care of our son, who was sick and had diarrhea. Every diaper change made me throw up, and there were probably 12 or so during the day. Funny part was it wasn't the stinky poo, it was the desitin smell that killed me.

  • Depends on you. I'm almost 20 weeks and its very very mild compared to what it was, but not completely gone. Defiantly by 43 weeks you'll be over your morning sickness. Hang in there.
