Oh wow CONGRATS!!!!

I know we can all tell you not to worry about it, but your OCD will make that hard not to do. Hopefully you can find some good coping mechanisms. I was only sick with one pregnancy - and not even sick - just queasy with dry heaves when I'd shower (odd, I know!). The other one I never even felt queasy once - so everyone is different & you might be just fine!

Like someone else said, keep saltines or pretzels in you at all times - just take a few bites even if you're not hungry, that might do the trick.

Congrats!!
We just came home from US/IOA and twice I saw vomit coming off a ride and once I smelled it. My dd11 is the one who is fearful of vomit, I do not know if she noticed it..I did not want to ask her for fear of freaking her out

Most people would be excited to be going to Disney World but I am dreading it! We are going in January (height of stomach bug season)!!! I am already worried one of us will get sick or see puke. I will try to avoid restrooms like the plague and will be hiding my ipod with ear phones in my fanny pack to wear while in the bathroom just so I don't "hear it". How pathetic is that!!!! I hate living like this, nothing will ever cure my fear

Our fears seem unreasonable to others, but they're very real to us. For example, today I'm anxious about DS11 throwing up. He slept over at a friend's house & they only slept 2 hours, he's absolutely miserable & cranky & has football practice tonight. He's going to be so exhausted by bedtime I'm nervus that he'll throw up! Unreasonable to most, but not to my OCD brain!

Ok guys.....
I am starting to panic about going to Disney and the fear of getting sick from stomach bug, motion sick, and seeing someone get sick. It's going to be a LONG 4 months!!!! I am scared to ride Everest, and Forbidden Journey due to my fear of motion sickness.

I wear my ipod in the bathroom too! It makes it much easier for me to deal with being in public bathrooms.

Thanks for the congrats guys

I feel like I'm in the middle of a ticking time bomb.... tomorrow will make 6 weeks.

I've had the queazies a few mornings and got pretty nauseated one morning last week, but so far so good, I'm crossing my fingers... frequent heart burn though.

We just drove from Orlando to Northern Virginia last week to come visit family and it was a pretty intense drive because I was having some belly issues and nausea but we made it well. I have my zofran and everything just in case so that makes me feel a little better.

I know it will be worth it in the end, and if puking is the worst that happens and I end up with a healthy baby in the arms then I have it really good. I'm proud of myself for recognizing that. I feel like that is a good step for me.

I've been doing a lot of gagging for certain smells though! My husband walks in with hotel waffles every morning and I just look at him and gag really loud. Poor guy!

I'm praying for a baby girl! My grandmother is so excited for this baby and I know she really wants to see a little girl. I want so badly for it to be a girl for her to see.

I think I will be around more since I'm freaking pretty bad!

Wow...people like me!

First of all a big thank you to TaraPA for directing me here!

I have a horrendous phobia of sickness and have since I was about 8 years old. I've had all sorts of treatment for it but nothing works! I haven't read this whole thread yet but I'll work my way through it because it's great to know that I'm not alone in this!

Here's my deal...

It started when I was a kid, my parents rarely went out with their friends when I was young, but on one occasion they actually did, I was at my grandmothers and they came to collect me. Their friend was drunk off her face (I didn't know that at the time because I was a kid and didn't know what drunk was!) and we were all in a black taxi. The friend ended up being sick everywhere, including all over me, and it freaked me out.

From then on I've had this horrible phobia. I'm not really a germaphobe or OCD with hand washing or any of that, but I do go out of my way to avoid situations where I know there could be sick people. Christmas and holidays I always quit work a week before so I don't have to deal with drunk people being sick etc. I and my family always take motion sickness pills even though we don't get motion sickness!

I get panic attacks when someone says they feel sick! My wife is terrible she has the most sensitive stomach of anyone I know (but she always takes care of herself and it's never been a problem) and my youngest daughter has severe anxiety disorder that makes her a puker too. Luckily for me, my wife is really understanding and she deals with it.

I hate it because I know it's irrational but I've tried to get help for it and I can't shake it off. I love WDW but I always find myself stressing that someone else is going be sick near me because of the rides!

Welcome Mr. Romance!

You're not alone! Once you read this thread you'll see MANY others with the exact same fears you have. It seems irrantional to others, but to us it's real.

I find myself constantly "scanning" on Disney buses, around Mission Space, at the exit of rides that might make people sick. I just can't turn off my brain! I'm also always constantly "scanning" my own kids, convinced something will make them sick & vomit. Wrestling season starts next week & that just brings with it tons of stomach bugs - and my kids always get them. All those germs in that hot sweaty room full of kids. Yuck!

I'm having anxiety over my own Disney trip which is in 2 weeks. DH is taking care of the boys while I'm on a girls trip, and I'm nervous that they will vomit during the night & he won't be able to handle it (he can NOT clean up vomit!) I've been on many girls trips before, and they've always turned out just fine, but my brain is in overdrive. I hate this!

Welcome Mr Romance.

Seems like a lot of Brits have this phobia. There is a website dedicated to it www.emetophobia.org and it seems to be mostly Brits that frequent that site. I wonder why?

Just stumbled along to this group, and unfortunately- I'm a member.

I have 2 kids, and that means that they bring home all kinds of not so fun things, including stomach bugs. I'm also a single mom so I'm pretty much on my own here...

My son is a puker, and will vomit if he is to tired, eats shrimp (even though he loves it!), or gets to worked up. I am TOTALLY ok with him throwing up as long as I know that I can not catch it.

That's right, my emetphobia is only the fear of ME throwing up. I don't know if it's the actual act of throwing up that bothers me or the nausea beforehand. The last time my son got sick I had myself in such a panic attack that I could not eat for days because I was afraid to get sick. I finally went to the doctor because it was consuming my every thought. He prescribed the Compazine which is what they give to cancer patients to battle nausea. I've never had to use it to stop nausea or vomitting, but I carry it with me everywhere 'just in case'.

I hate that this rules my life. I know that it's completely irrational but I can not stop it. I'm petrified of going to Disney on Friday and having someone end up with a stomach bug.

Hi all! It's been awhile since I visited this thread. Anyway, a couple weeks ago, my dbf was sick with a chest cold/sinus infection. He had that really thick 'phlegm' that needed to be coughed up all the time to help clear it. Anyway, one night, we stopped at a gas station to get some water. He coughed a little bit, then started gagging! Omg, I tell you, I thought he was going to puke. I basically shoved him out of the car and sat there paralyzed until it was over. He didn't throw up. I still wanted to run away from the car and escape, though, but forced myself to stay put.

I was so nauseated and horrified when he got back in the car, the poor guy felt terrible for scaring me so While I'm glad I didn't run away, it's still a bit of a disappointment to know I can still be strongly affected. Does anyone else get nervous whenever someone has a bad coughing fit? It's always made me wary.
