Go ahead, hate me. Everyone else does. I’m one of those lucky moms whose pregnancies were about as easy as they come. I wasn’t even troubled by that most dreaded of symptoms, morning sickness; while other friends told tales of sunrise bathroom runs and marathon cracker-nibbling, my stomach stayed calm. (Okay, there was the time where I felt just a tiny bit queasy for a moment right after my husband kissed me – and boy, the man will never let me live that one down.)
Unfortunately, lots of moms-to-be can’t say the same. Kourtney Kardashian, in the early stages of her second pregnancy, is feeling that dreaded tummy trouble not just at dawn’s early light, but pretty much round-the-clock. On Monday, she sent a desperate Tweet: “Who has nausea cures? Been laying in bed all day after being sick all night. HELP!”
Sis Khloe Kardashian Odom confirmed to E!News that “she is having morning sickness. But it’s not even in the morning. It happens any time, apparently.”
I sympathize, even though I can’t completely relate. Would it help if I said that my stomach-turning came after the babies arrived (loaded diapers – yuck!)? No? Then maybe Kourtney can take comfort in seeing that these other famous moms survived the nausea days and have beautiful children to show for it. Take a look…
Kate Gosselin 1 of 5While pregnant with her twins, Cara and Mady, Kate says she suffered "debilitating nausea" and needed the drug Zofran to get through the worst of it.
Kate Hudson 2 of 5Reportedly, Kate was so nauseated for the first four months of her second pregnancy that she only gained one pound!
Bryce Dallas Howard 3 of 5The star of "The Help" says she was "sick as a dog" right up to her sixth month of pregnancy with her second baby. Now, she says, "I feel fantastic."
Ali Landry 4 of 5When the model (here with daughter Estela) was pregnant with her second baby, the only thing that eased her nausea was grilled-cheese sandwiches.
Tia Mowry 5 of 5She's smiling now, but the former "Sister, Sister" co-star needed acupressure wristbands to keep her queasiness under control.
