    Yes it's normal, everyone's pregnancy is different. My cousin was sick from day one until she delivered her son and with her daughter she wasn't sick one time. I would still mentioned it to your doctor at your next appt, but yes I have heard some women being sick through there whole pregnancy. How many weeks are you? I had a hard time eating anything in the 1st tri and everyone told me I would get my appetite back in the 2nd, but 13 weeks rolled around and I still never felt like eating. I finally at 16 weeks started to feel normal again and now at 20 weeks I have never felt better and eat probably way more then I should. So if your still early in the 2nd tri that could by why to and maybe give it a couple more weeks and you might start to feel better.

    Yes, it's very normal. Some women have nausea/vomiting all throughout pregnancy. Try keeping a pack of crackers and a bottle of water with you. Staying hydrated and keeping something in your stomach can help. I hope it gets better for you.

    This is the first time I have ever posted on here, so hopefully this works......Apparently it is normal to still be sick in the second tri. I will be 20 weeks on Thursday (4/29) and I am just starting to feel normal, although I still have nausea every evening and couldn't keep my breakfast down yesterday. From Feb. 1 to March 4, I lost 7 lbs and then I lost another 4.5 lbs by April 1. I blew blood vessels out in my eyes from throwing up so hard (TMI). I have been prescribed Ondansetron (Zofran generic) and Nexium because I ended up getting terrible acid reflux on top of it all. Everyone told me it would subside after my first tri, and I was very disheartened when it didn't go away. I really wish you luck! Feeling terrible makes it hard to get excited some days. Hang in there and keep drinking fluids!

    I felt sick everyday, and vomited at least 1-2x a week until the day I was put on bedrest at 22w3d.

    Now I feel much better, although I'm still very rarely hungry. But I've only felt nauseous a couple of times since bedrest and I'm now 27w1d.

    So I guess my advice is to slow down if you can. Rest more, and do less chores. Drink more water. It may not make any difference, but it might help!

    I usually don't get any REAL morning sickness. Just slight nausea for a few weeks in the first trimester. It all passed and was good and gone, and all of a sudden, a few weeks back, this new swing of sickness hits me!

    It's not the typical morning sickness. But everytime I eat, about 30 minutes later, I'm woozy for a good hour. I thought it was a stomach bug; but three 1/2 weeks later I'm thinking it's just pregnancy. Never had this with DD. :/

    Good luck!

    People say it SHOULD be gone after 12 weeks... that doesn't mean it will for everyone. Everyone is different, heck I am 26 weeks along and have just about thrown up every day this week!!!
