After 12 weeks you should be getting to normal, I am 13 weeks pregnant and I am back to feeling like myself, I have sex with my husband, no sickness, no exhaustion, no symptoms at all. But do speak with your OBGYN.

Yeah Im seeing the midwife tomorrow. Leaving blood and urine samples. Im a bit scared I'll throw up while I'm out and about, it's always been somewhat of a phobia for me to throw up in public.

Just blame it on the kid, lol. That's what I have been doing, it's a parasite that's making you sick to be honest. Not something you can control

... soda crackers can help ease the nausea and they are an easy inexpensive item to carry around. All the best and keep us posted .. ")

Carry barf bags and wet wipes with you in an easy-access bag or purse. A diaper bag will probably work.

Candied ginger is your best friend. I say this as a father of 3 and uncle of 25- who's had to help with this stage a lot. Get a supply of candied ginger and keep it close. Also, try green olives. It doesn't matter if you didn't like them when you weren't pregnant. There's a good chance you'll love them for the next few months.

I have heard ginger helps. I love olives so that wont be a problem. This was the first time I threw up, I'll be in week 11 on Wednesday, it caught me by surprise I became extremely nauseous and then it was from 0 to puke in 60 seconds.

My wife said this helped; very frequent, small meals. Constant snacking and nibbling, might be a good way of viewing it. Almost to the point of never stopping eating. She found when she ate a lot in a big meal, then her stomach bothered her and also if she didn't eat enough. Crackers were her best friend!

I've noticed that too, eating every 2 hours is almost a must. Can't eat to much either because like your wife my stomach breaks havoc.

Good luck to you! Pregnancy didn't look fun, but it's worth the headaches! Kids are awesome!

My wife and I were having a laugh just the other day over something from her pregnancy 18 years ago.

She was super-sensitive to smells.

I came home one evening, she was in the kitchen. I was barely in from the garage, 3 rooms away, and she screamed at me "You had butter!". I was simultaneously appalled and impressed.

*edit for clarity: I had eaten butter on bread earlier in the day and she could smell it on me.

So yeah, being sensitive to smells is pretty normal. Hopefully you'll be able to laugh about it later. Good luck.

My bf tried to eat fried chicken next to me a few days ago, I almost gave him a paddling. I'm also quite impressed by your wife's ability to smell it from so far away :)

Take a couple of empty plastic shopping bags with you just in case. Someone else mentioned Ginger. I like Traditional Medicinal teas. Think they have a 'pregnancy tea'. God, I feel for you. I remember being so damned sick, I could barely function for the first 3 months. All of the old school ladies would tell me, "Oh! You're gonna have a boy!" They said that a lot of morning sickness/nausea that lasts, means you are expecting a boy. They were right! I use Mastic Gum 'tears' for nausea (Krinos imported Mastic Gum) which is all natural from Greece BUT I'm not sure if it is safe for pregnancy so please check before trying. Wishing you the very best and hoping this passes soon. Congrats, btw!

There are so many worries when we're pregnant. I hope you're able to enjoy it and relax. Also hope you've found a good practitioner that you trust & feel comfortable with. OH! Now I want to go look at baby names! So exciting to be expecting a new life. Please update us if you're contemplating any names!

It shouldn't be too long according to the book I got from the midwife after week 12 it gets better. I'm at week 11 on Wednesday, this was the first time I threw up caught me by surprise. It was from 0 to puke in 60 seconds.

I don't think hangovers increase your boob size and cause constipation though xD
