Hope it's normal for morning sickness to come and go.

Normally, I feel icky starting around 9:30/10:00 p.m. and lasting through the next morning. Well, yesterday it seems my appetite was back and I felt good last night. I brushed my teeth last night and this morning without gagging. Hopefully, m/s is just taking a break and will be back soon. 1 week to go until my ultrasound, and I really hope to see that flickering heartbeat! I think I might die of nervousness beforehand. I'll probably hyperventilate. I wish the week would just hurry up.

(A post note: my anxiety is culminated by the fact that last time my bean stopped growing at 8 weeks and I never even knew. No cramping, no bleeding--nothing. Only to find out 4 weeks later that it was a missed miscarriage.)

So, for those of you who have been through this before, did your morning sickness ever come and go? I can barely remember with Andrew since the m/s part of it was 2 1/2 years ago. I do know that it lasted from weeks 6-9, but I don't remember if it came and went.

My morning sickness (read evening sickness) definitely came and went. There were days when I couldn't eat anything in the evenings and others when I was fine. My worst evening sickness was actually around 12 weeks. Go figure. :-)

I can't believe I don't remember already, I'm not even done being pregnant.
But I do know I felt worse with my m/c pregnancy than I did with this one. It was my hypoglycemia that was real bad last time and I just havent had any this time.
I'm praying for you and your little bean through these next few days. I know how hard it is even after seeing the h/b. I saw ours with my m/c baby, then a couple weeks later we didnt. So while a h/b was reassuring for the moment, I know how things can go wrong from one appointment to the next.
Have you thought of getting a fetal doppler? I rented one and it really helped me inbetween appointments until I could feel him move.
The first Tri (after loss) is just so hard.

I never had m/s. Only made it to 6 wks and the baby died around 5. But I know what you're going through. I'm a nervous wreck, trying to hold myself together with cheap dollar store glue.

It definitely comes and goes. Normal! Honestly I only had some fleeting nausea until week 7-9 when I threw up all day long and could only keep down breakfast (so much for MORNING sickness, right?). The hormones fluctuate at different times of day, hence the disappearing reappearing MS

Mine certainly came and went. ;)

I didn't even really have it that bad this time around. My first pregnancy it was terrible.

Just keep reminding yourself every pregnancy is different. ((hugs))
