Did anyone's m/s get worse in second trimester?

Hi had my scan last Friday and all is well (phew!) but my sickness seems to have got worse. I didn't have loads of sickness in the first trimester - just queasiness and feeling ill at certain smells. Now I seem to be actually throwing up with it and feeling sick in the night. Thought it was supposed to get better. and when does this supposed 'glowing' period start cos i feel shattered and rubbish. Anyone else have this? Hope it doesn't mean something is wrong?

    sorry to hear you're feeling poo still. Contrary to popular belief, it's around 16wks when the placenta fully takes over and ms tails off; quite a lot of people experience a reduction by 12wks, but to have it til 16wks is not unusual.

    Hope it goes for you soon x

    hi, my m/s was in overdrive during the first few weeks of my second trimester, sick after breakfast and my evening meal but it eased considerably by week 15/16 and came to a complete stop. I know that m/s is awful and feeling sick constantly/loss of appetite is the worst but once it stopped I was able to enjoy my pregnancy finally. Persevere, it will get better. I also found that red meat made me feel worse so I cut that out for a while.

    Re the glowing period, can't say that I have experienced that yet (I am 22 weeks), during the m/s period I looked and felt awful but that has thankfully passed. I guess we glow when we are talking/thinking about our precious babies inside us, I certainly can't hide my smile.

    Hope it eases soon for you. x

    My morning sickness lasted until week 26, unfortunatley by week 32 the indigestion started and I was back to throwing up. The only problem with throwing up in the later stages of pregnancy is that when you retch you wet yourself. I used to sit on the loo with a bucket in my lap to avoid wet floors.

    Mrs Leggo, I can sympathise with that, I used to pass small amounts of urine when I would throw up during my early pregnancy m/s, mainly in the morning. Certainly not the most enjoyable times of pregnancy.
