For the past 6 weeks, I have been trying to manage the worst “morning sickness” that I’ve ever had. I had moderate queezies with my first two pregnancies, but it was manageable and went away at around 15 weeks. With my youngest child, I needed to take daily medication to reduce the amount of times I vomited as well as the nausea. It also stayed with me until the day after her birth.
This time around, it started early for me at about 5 weeks and now at 11 weeks, it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. I am already on the maximum dose of medication I can take and while it sure does help, it doesn’t make it go away completely. I have been doing what I can to help manage it, because at times it can feel very overwhelming. I have noticed a trend that certain activities or foods make the nausea so much worse. I call them morning sickness triggers and have found that once I discovered what they were, avoiding them as much as I can has made it all a little more manageable.
