My morning sickness was worse with my last child (a singleton) than with the twins. With the twins it was bad for the first 3 months or so and tolerable where I could still eat somewhat normally most of the time. With my singleton it lasted all 9 months and I lived on ginger pills and saltines.
my morning sickness with the twins was so bad that the doc put me on phenergan . . . I lost weight up until the second trimester, no matter what I did . . . popcicles work great! Best of luck . . . once I got over it though, it didn't come back and I felt great!

Mine is worse, but I never carried my singletons longer than 8 weeks so it's hard to tell really. My m/s has gotten worse starting about week 13, go figure! It used to be evening sickness, now it's "most of the time" sickness.

I didn't have any morning sickness. I was kind of confused about this since I've never really experienced morning sickness and I had heard it's more common to have with multiples. My doctor said to count my blessings. Not everyone gets morning sickness with multiples and I should consider myself lucky since it still is considered more common to have it with multiples. How bad it is depends on how your body is reacting to the hormone changes and that can be different with each pregnancy.

I had morning sickness (all day sickness) from 8 to 13/14 weeks. I was miserable - the doctor finally put me on antinusea meds - they took the sickness away, gave me enough time to eat and maybe watch a movie, then knocked me out for anywhere from 8-14 hours! I could only take it when I knew I could just sleep, but the relief was worth the sleep. Some of my favorite things to get though it were: flattened-roomtemp gingerale, preggie pop drops, pepermint disks, lemon candy, fresh lemon in cold water, mashpoatatoes, and sleep (at least I didn't feel sick when I slept). I have felt better since, but still get gaggy sometimes - usually when I am hungry or tired. If I take care of the problem (either eat or sleep) I feel better instantly. Hang in there, it does get better!
