    Hi girls,
    I'm currently 4+2 and had the odd little bit of nausea start at 3+6 but today i'm literally having my mouth water up constantly aswell as feeling faint and dizzy at the same time. Milk is the only thing that takes it off for a moment. I haven't actually vomited yet(doesn't sound far off) just wanted to know if anybody has had sickness this early and is it a strong sign of pregnancy? Xx

    Mine started at around 7 weeks. I thought something was wrong & wished for it until then, & when it came, wanted it gone. At 14 weeks now & it's much better than it was

    Sickness is all good -).

    I was constantly told sickness meanseverything is working :).

    I felt travel sick from about 4-5 weeks. Then proper sickness kicked it from week 5-6 ish. I was sick everyday throughout the day until week 12. Now I only feel sick when I'm hungry.

    The only thing that gave me some relief was water, mints and lemon based things.

    Hope this helps.

    Xx

    I thought sickness was a good thing, just wanted someone to confirm. Did you feel cold too?
    It's only milk at the minute that curbs mine xx

    I've been advised to drink lots of water to combat the dizziness and eat snacks between meals. This morning I had a snack at 5am! It does help though xx

    I was freezing but my sickness was during March and April when we had ridiculously cold weather :).

    Lots of water and regular snacks is def a good call.

    I did find eating very hard as I was so sick but its all worth it in the end :)

    Hi Sophie for me it was bang on 6 weeks and stopped at 16 weeks. Nausea and vomiting (in the evening). It was not a fun time. But everyone is different. Dry crackers are good for absorbing all the water in your mouth. On the plus side its a good sign for a strong pregnancy xxx

    Not been sick yet, just nauseous on and off throughout the day today and had to hold my stomach. Got home this evening mouth started watering which makes me think I will be a vomiter quite soon!

    I suppose if you think about it, your body is making all of this hormone in your body, to a point, as the levels increase, until your body adjusts (if it manages to) it's going to be quite toxic to your system
    Your digestion slows way down, your sense of smell heightens - it's no wonder you feel sick!

    As for the dizziness, well, put that down to 2 things. A: you're not eating as well as you could because of the nausea, B: you've got all this extra blood produced in your body that is being diverted elsewhere so when you get up quick etc, youll naturally be quite light headed!

    And as for the tiredness, well, whats not to be tired about?
    Youre body is doing A LOT of work in there
    Your insides are working a full time job in there! It's knackering business :D

    The tiredness is what I've struggled with most.
    It's shit. I've had to miss days off work
    I sleep fine at night, but I'm sickeningly cant function at all tired, and can do nothing but sleep
    Sleep all day and sleep at night
    I cant sleep sitting up, but I actually doze off sitting upright when I'm in the middle of doing something
    Totally jus nod off with no notice or memory of it!! x
