Singer Kelly Clarkson, who is expecting her first child, doesn’t know why they call it morning sickness. “That’s my big joke right now,” she said on the US Today show. “It’s like all day and night.”
There was no point being polite when the host asked if she was well. “Nope,” she replied, laughing.She and new husband Brandon Blackstock, a talent manager, announced their news last week and “I’m super excited about being pregnant. I’m just looking forward to the second trimester. They say it’s better.”She didn’t mean to make the announcement before the end of her first trimester, “but everybody kept talking about it and I had to cancel something because I’ve been so ill,” she explained. “I didn’t want people to think that I’m canceling because I’m lazy or something. So, we just told people. But we had a really good reason.”Clarkson, 31, and Blackstock, who already share care of his two children from a previous relationship, already have names picked out for either a boy or a girl (it’s “way too early to know,” she said). But “We’re not saying because I don’t want someone to steal my baby’s name!”

However, she’s taking a scientific approach to her guess and is sure it’s a girl. “Scientifically, they say if [you get pregnant] after you ovulate, girl sperm lasts longer than boy sperm, at least that’s what my doctor told me, and I guess mine was late,” she said. “It’s a gut feeling, too. Because she’s killing me, and of course it’s a girl causing the trouble.”

Did you suffer “all day and all night” sickness like Kelly? How many months did it last?

  • Yep I remember that – not able to hold anything down – even water – I was 9 months pregnant before I weighed as much again as I had at 3 months pregnant, 24/7 sickness for the full 9 months – and people wondered why I didn’t want a second child!

  • Apparently my Mother was.during the day and during the middle of the night too. My Dad kept a bowl under his side of the bed because she would start retching before she was even awake. He often had the bowl under her chin when she woke up, just in time. She was on a special diet “no fat, no this, no that” She was even rushed to hospital twice.
    (she never smoke or drank she hated he smell of both of them). The Dr. even tried injections containing liver. When she was about 8 months pregnant with my brother (he is younger than me), Mum decided one night that she wanted fish & chips + a glass of coke.
    It was the first time she wasn’t sick in months. After that she still cooked our meals and she had a small glass of coke every night and it was very rare she was sick after that. Apparently the Dr. wasn’t overly impressed when she told him – until she told him “too bad at least I’m not being sick and enjoying my food.
