Misery loves company, especially when you're knocked up and puking your brains out. In the height of morning sickness, crouched down in front of the toilet letting your insides explode, you might feel as if you're the only woman in the world who is this miserable. But you're far from alone—you're actually in quite glamorous company.
Here are 11 celebrities who went through the worst morning sickness has to offer before bringing their beautiful bundles of joy into the world:
The superstar singer is pregnant with her second child, but it hasn't been easy this time around. "I have to get IVs and fluids because I get so dehydrated. It's really bad," Clarkson told Gayle King on CBS This Morning.
"My mother loved each [pregnancy] to bits; she felt
alive and beautiful. I wanted to throw up all the time," Paltrow shared. "Also, being pregnant is hard. Some women love it. I feel terrible
from start to finish. So sick in the beginning and in such a bad mood."
"I was definitely more nauseous—basically morning,
noon, and night and eating horribly, like tons of carbs," the mom shared about her pregnancy.
"Grilled cheese sandwiches, that was my thing."
Mariah, when pregnant with her twins, told USA Today, "Throwing up is bad
for your voice," and that "The reflux is terrible, so I've been
trying to just keep calm, get through it."
"I don't know that any pregnancy is easy, " Messing said. "I had health
problems. I had to spend time in bed, resting, and having intravenous fluids.
But having a baby was something I'd looked forward to for my entire life, so
any temporary sacrifice seems worth it."
Kate Middleton famously suffered through severe morning sickness in the form of hyperemesis gravidarum, which is intense vomiting that can lead to dehydration. It got so bad that she had to be hospitalized.
Gwyneth Paltrow dished on Beyoncé's morning sickness when she was performing while pregnant with Blue Ivy: "She was absolutely
incredible, especially as she was barfing in between."
"The nausea kind of got the best of me," Tia
explained about her pregnancy. "I actually wear these nausea bands; they're like motion
sickness bands that people wear on, like, cruise ships and stuff, and they have
been my best friends. They're part of my wardrobe now."
