Morning Sickness Question

I have a question for those of you who have experienced horrible morning sickness (i.e. vomiting). Are you the type that is pre-disposed to vomiting? For instance, do you throw up a lot with you get the flu, do certian foods upset your stomach, etc...? I have not thrown up since I was 14 (15 years ago) and that was only because I had an appendicitis. When I get the flu, I feel sick, but I never get stomach symptoms. I am wondering what my chances are of being hit with the vomiting side of morning sickness since nothing else seems to effect me that way. Thanks!

Good question. I vomit at always had the worst stomach. So not at about 6 weeks I do have horrible doctor gave me Zofran which is a dream....

I am predisposed to vomiting. I always say i have a weak stomach. I think I would be queasy feeling no matter what..... But I threw up a lot with morning sickness because I vomit easily. The queasy feeling like you just got off a boat would be the same no matter what...some people just don't vomit because of it.

I am a hard person to get to throw up. Always have been. With my first pregnancy I threw up at the drop of a hat. Or should I say a whif of any smell. Now I am pregnant with my second and I am not throwing up as easy but I have been extremely naseas like 24/7 and I am miserable. I think that is worse. I have thrown up three times in the 11 weeks I have been pregnant. But man I have been miserably ill. Goodluck. I don't wish it on any one.

Oh no! I was hoping maybe I would escape the vomiting, but it looks like it's kind of random who gets hit with it!

I was never one to throw up easily. With my first, I threw up once, and had no nausea. But then after, I would throw up when I got the flu. Or food poisoned. With my second, I threw up once, with constant nausea. (Lived on TUMS) Now with this one, I haven't thrown up at all, but have constant nausea. (Living on Rolaids now)

Severe Morning Sickness tends to be genetic so if your mother or your fathers mother had morning sickness then there is a good chance that you will to.

I have never heard of morning sickness being genetic. Every woman is different. I have had severe sickness- vomit, fatigue, you name it, but my mother had no problems at all. It all depends on the individual

I had morning sickness for six months while pregnant. I only vomited in the am, from brushing my teeth, but I was nauseaus 24/7. Most things stayed down, there was an occa__sional battle of wills though. LOL

I am so sorry to be a bearer of bad news, but I'm not sure one has anything to do with the other. I say this because I have never been a puker. I am 34 and could count on one hand the times I have thrown up in my entire life (well, other than alcohol induced... LOL). I am almost 9 weeks pg right now, and girl, I am the vomit queen! If I'm not vomiting, I'm heaving and/or gagging. I hope for your sake you are spared this misery!! Best of luck to you!
