I have never been pregnant but I have heard that it differs from woman to woman. Some say they never got any sickness and other say they felt nauseous all day long but never physically threw up. I guess it's different for everyone.
I felt nauseous all day long and couldn't eat more than two mouthfuls without heaving but was only actually sick twice. I knew that this was a good thing though, so didn't mind the nausea and actually panicked when it went away as I was worried it meant I had miscarried....
Fortunately, none whatsoever! That's why I was convinced I was having a boy in 2nd pregnancy, because it was a 'mirror' pregnancy of my first!
But a beautiful little 8lbs girl was born! So we had a pidgeon pair!
P.S. but I couldn't look at, smell, prepare or eat red meat. Couldn't walk past a Butcher's shop or I'd start to dry retch!
This really confused me, because 'normally' I love red meat. Same happened in second pregnancy. Go figure!
It only happened in both, for first trimester. By that time, I'd got into a good routine with fish & chicken, so continued.
The first one wasn't too bad. The smell of fumes from the busses used to set me off when I got off the train. With the 2nd one I was really bad to the point where I had to be hospitalised. When back home I couldn't even get out of bed. Mum had to cone down and stay for as long as she could. I couldn't even stand the smell of food. I couldn't walk down the hall and into the kitchen even though it was spotless and sparkling. My husband had to leave me every day when mum wasn't there with a thermos of tea and sao biscuits next to my bed and my Australian Silkie would sleep all day at the foot of my bed until let out when husband came home. With the 3rd it was better but I put on so much weight with this one but at least it was better than being permanently ill
