'Morning sickness'

Hi all, im just over 8 weeks with my first and no mum to ask so turning to you 😁. The first week of sickness it was all day nausea and sickness at any point. Over the last week however i have been waking up around 3 unable to get back to sleep (hubby snoring doesnt help) feeling awful. I usually end up going down stairs and having some water and a biscuit and cuddling up on the sofa inveitably i cant get back to sleep and then about 4 the sickness starts and continues on and off till about 6. I then sometimes get another hour or half an hour sleep before getting up and most days so far i have then not been sick for the rest of the day, i do however end up spending another hour or so a day dry heaving like a cat with a furball.

My main question really is, is it normal to have sickness during the night? Subliminally training me for the night feeds perhaps?😂 Any experience or advice would be much appreciated.

Yes, it is. It sucks!

It's also normal to be a raging insomniac in the first trimester.

I have no advice I'm sorry, just reassurance and sympathy.

i had nausea all day and night, with loads of dry heaving. i often woke up around 3/4 needing something light to eat quickly or id be sick, but if i had something too heavy-even Weetabix id be sick. Cereal bars to suck/nibble became my best friend. Thankfully the worst of it passed around 16/17 weeks. now I'm 31 weeks i just have the occasional day like that but heart burn has become my worst enemy! keep focusing on the little one your doing this for x

I had nausea terribly at at night and through the day. Some people suggested keeping a pack of rich tea or finger biscuits at the side of the bed but it didn't really work. I was forever running the toilet heaving but nothing ever came up!

As soon as I hit 14 weeks though, my sickness stopped completely. It was so strange! Kicked in at 17 weeks again for 1 week n went. Now at nearly 37 weeks it's started again so hopefully not long until he's here!

Good luck with your pregnancy! Xx

Thank you ladies. Sorry for the late reply my husbands away and took my charger and its been far to much effort to look for another! Pregnancy is no joke! I feel like im wasting away and ive got soo long left!

We lost one baby already this pregnancy and a threatned miscarriage with this bean so im on bed rest till 12 weeks reduce the risk to other baby. I need to look at the sickness as a relief that baby is strong and growing but its super tough. Everytime i think im ok and i have a little nibble 30 mins later im puking my guts up. After a year of operations and being in the menopause till November i think my body is sick of hormones and punishing me!

Thank you for your help. Wishing you all the best of luck and for a smooth and quick delivery! :) xx
