I'm just wondering how far along everybody was when it started?[/b]
Mine started promptly by week 5. I am now 9 weeks and I still suffer from it, but it has definitely morphed from weeks ago. At first, nausea lasted all day and it felt pretty consistent. I ended up losing 7 pounds in about three weeks. But I never threw up (Thanks Goodness). When week 8 rolled around, I started getting my appetite back (not fully restored but definitely better than before), and the nausea became more off and on. When I have it now, it's much more intense than before, but when I don't have it, I actually feel pretty good.
I had about one week of morning sickness with my son. It was week 7.
Hope this helps and I hope you don't have to deal with m/s at all!!!!!
I guess I was just wondering because I have completley lost my appetite I'm not really feeling sick or anything but I have never had a problem with food before! Is this how it starts or is it something else?

Food aversions are one of hte symptoms associated with the first trimester, but I'm not sure if they neatly correlate with the onset of morning sickness. With my son, I had an aversion to fish for the first three months, yet I had very mild morning sickness. Just a few days really of slight "grossness".
With this pregnancy, I have what you describe. I started out just not wanting to eat anything. Nothing appealed to me. But that happened at the same time as the stomach problems began. Three weeks later, however, I started getting the appetite back, but I still get very queasy (though not all the time).
Ginger, I'd say, has been the best thing for me, though. I sip organic ginger ale, suck on ginger lollypops, and I've even bought ginger pills (though I haven't taken those yet). All are ok'ed by my doctor.
No problem. You know, one of the most depressing parts of m/s is that non-pregnant people tend to dismiss it (I've even had people at work laugh when they see me get sick.)
So any support I can provide for someone suffering from the same thing (or scared they will) is the least I can do.
Ok, I don't want to scare you, but my morning sickness didn't start till I was 12 weeks! There were some things that made me nautious early on, like coffee, but I totally though I was in the clear, then at 12 weeks it was like BAM! I was sick from 12 weeks till I delivered. It was miserable! Hopefully it won't be bad for you!
The first pregnancy started around week 7 then got really really bad around week 9 or 10 then got better around week 12. So I would say the worst of it was week 7-13. Smells still bothered me until my 3rd trimester but at least it wasn't all day sickness like at the first. With my current pregnancy around 4 weeks (before I knew I was PG) I got the sick feeling. Then nothing after that until today. I am 7 weeks. Its more like a sickness from not eating though. Empty stomach=sick feeling!!
With Liam it started at 6 weeks, it was pretty much just in the mornings and early afternoon. Of course there were smells that set me off but I only puked once or twice in the mornings. That lasted til about 15 weeks although it tapered off a ton after 12 weeks. This time it started in my 3rd week. It just keeps getting worse and worse. 95% of what goes in my mouth ends up coming back up. I really hope it starts letting up soon.
