I know this is going to sound a little weird... but I'm at about 10 1/2 weeks now and ever since I started feeling sick (right when I hit 6 wks) showers have been THE WORST... I used to shower every morning, felt SO gross if I didnt... but lately, I push it off as much as i can, sometimes only showering every 3rd day. I find it sick, but I can't help it. Showers, and the thought of them, make me nauseous...

(I should also say that I have been having a hard time with strong morning sickness, throwing up almost every day or every other... some days feeling so sick I just mostly stay in bed.)

I tried switching to unscented soap & stuff, but they all smell anyhow, and it didnt help... i'm not even sure if its the soap or the hot water but something is so uncomfortable for me.

Is that crazy? Has anyone else experienced similiar feelings?

I can relate, but only when I'm washing my face in the shower. I'm fine showering otherwise, but as soon as I start washing my face, I become nauseas and feel like I'm going to throw-up. My soap doesn't really have a scent.

Have you tried taking a bath? Might be a better, more relaxing option. Hope you feel better soon!

if you are taking too hot of a shower that can do that in itself anyway.
ever heard of pregnant women not going in a jacuzzi. It constricts veins n arteries n temporarily slows blood flow

Oh, I feel you. But it comes to giving my boys a bath. I always want to jump in the shower, but I can't stand their soap or lotion. I always take long shower when before it was 5 minutes in and out now I'm in there for 30 minutes laying at the bottom of the tub for the water to hit my tummy. I'm a mess, but I know how you feel!

Thanks to cavewoman

I'd try a cooler shower or a bath and see if that helps. I hope that feeling passes soon!

It sounds like an awful feeling to experience. I hope you feel better soon. Does the water itself have a slight smell that you react to when pregnant?
