HI ladies!

For those of you who have two or more children of the same sex, did you have worse morning sickness with one of them?

I'm having my second boy and the MS is incredibly bad. Just when I think it's going, it starts up again. With DS1, I had nothing. Just a bit of nausea - nowhere near as bad as this one.

YES!! With my DD, I had terrible and I mean terrible MS. When I got pregnant with both my boys, I may have had a tiny bit but nothing that compared. So I really thought it was the difference of the sexes....UNTIL this little puppy I'm harvesting. ;) I have been told the baby is a HE and he has given me the worst morning sickness I have EVER had in all my pregnancies. Another boy, back to back and this pregnancies is the complete opposite of both my pregnancies with my other 2 boys.

Ugh, yes..

First, I threw up once randomly in my first trimester.. Second, I was pretty sick and needed Zofran until about seven months.. Third, sick sick sick and needed meds until 36 weeks.. Gained a total of 12 pounds after losing a ton. This one is right on track with my last but I threw up more in the first trimester. So four boys and with each pregnancy progressively worse..

Even if we wanted more babies I'd say no.. Way to hard to parent with hyperemesis..

With ds1, everything was super easy. I never had ms or anything. ds2 was a completely different story. I lost 27 lbs by week 7 and was up to 4 zofran a day.

I really hope it starts to get better soon.

Yep. My first ds I loved being pg. Was only sick for a week. But the minute the test came back positive with ds #2 I was throwing up and miserable the whole 9 months.

With my girls, the amount of m/s seemed to be about the same.
