What Does Morning Sickness Feel Like

The other day a pregnant friend of mine asked what does morning sickness feel like and how to fight it. The advice was sought because she wasn’t sure whether she is coming down with something or her body started changing because of pregnancy. Trying to find a way to help her pass through this rather tough and boring phase of pregnancy, I wrote down all the things I could remember of first four months of my pregnancy; what is morning sickness like sickness felt like; how long did it last and how I coped with it.

Focus on what you can do and not so much on what you think you should do. I’m sorry you are feeling so sick, but every pregnancy is different so avoid those naysayers that tell you to buck up- it is hard to buck up when you just want to chuck up (upchuck, anyway).

I can’t remember what it is, but if you me mail me I can look it up. I started feeling better (not normal, just less bad) around 16 weeks, felt pretty normal from weeks 20-26 (still took meds though) and the last two weeks as baby crunches my organs the reflux is coming back despite the meds.

I’m sure it will get better but I find myself googling cures for it and to be truthful I’m sick of reading the same thing all the time – it was like a breath of fresh air to read someone’s frank and honest account of how it feels – I get so frustrated when people say I’ll enjoy being pregnant really soon because I’m just not feeling that at the moment.
