I think on average woman start to feel normal again around 12 weeks, but this obviously varies for each person. One of my friends was violently ill through her whole pregnancy. I can't remember the name of the condition, but it's basically an allergy to the pregnancy. Aweful! She was off work for 7 months before her maternity even started. It's pretty pants that you're still feeling rubbish, but I don't think it's anything to worry about. It's just bad luck! Sorry about that. Remember the MW can perscribe anti-sickness stuff if you really need it. Wishing you well. Bec x

The condition is called Hyperemisis Gravitum. I only know this as I am suffering from it, I was given medication to keep food down as a smell of food sent me dashing to the toilet to be sick.
If you are being overly sick let your midwife know as you may become dehydrated very quickly.
I am 12 weeks on Thursday this week and I am only being sick morning and night instead of the whole day!!!
