Second Trimester Morning Sickness or Stress?

I did really well through my first trimester with the morning sickness, I only threw up twice, and was queasy for about a month. Now I'm 20 weeks, and have thrown up 5 times in the last week. Is it possible to start morning sickness in the second trimester? With my son, I had horrible morning sickness all through the first trimester, I lost 20 lbs because of it. Or would it be more likely caused by stress? My mother in law made the decision last week to stop taking chemo, and has started planning her funeral. We've known since last March that she probably wouldn't beat the cancer this time around, but I am having a terrible time accepting the fact that my baby might never get to meet her amazing grandma.

What can I do next?

Oh my goodness that is hard. It sounds like it may be a combo. Talk to your dr and see if they will give you Zofran for the nausia and vomiting. It's amazing. And from what I have read it's safe when you are pregenant. Hang in there!

Good Luck and God Bless!

Ditto the Zofran. I used it with my 2nd and it made a world of difference for me. My baby is now almost 11 yrs old and is a wonderful, talented, smart, normal kid in every way. :)

With my second baby, I formed some food intolerances that I have never had before. I could not have anything with MSG or I would be very ill. Also beef was off limits. Starting in the 3rd trimester, I could tolerate beef again, but the MSG thing is permanent now. I would say take a look at what you ate last week and see if you notice a trend.
And so sorry about your MIL. My grandmother died about a year before my daughter was born. All the great-grandkids knew her and she them, except for my baby girl. That made me very sad. But my daughter has so many of her traits- headstrong, independent, etc. Even other members of my family have commented on it. I see my grandmother in her all the time. It's the little blessings... Take care.
