You salivate a lot more, and it tastes funny (often sweeter), and your stomach churns like hell.

Blegh, it's a gross feeling

Tbh, if you haven't thrown up for a long time it's pretty unlikely you will unless you're really really sick. I'm the same.

It's hard to tell when you're about to except for obviously feeling really nauseous. My mouth waters for some reason when I'm about to ralph.

Keep a plastic bucket next to your bed in case.

more saliva which is also sweeter and warmer although Im not sure if this warning gives you enough time to find a bucket.

This! I was sick on Monday. Literally moments beforehand I had an excess of saliva that tasted funny.

The last time I was sick was a few months ago but before then, like you, I hadn't been sick since I was very young.

I agree about the saliva thing although that sometimes happens to me when I don't throw up so I don't think it's a definate sign. I also had a stomach ache which felt the worst just under my chest. I also agree with the advice given regarding the bucket by the bed as I didn't even have time to get out of my bed (I was trying to get to sleep at the time I threw up) let alone make the mad dash to the bathroom.

That's odd. Not eaten anything funny or had any other symptoms? Pretty sure you shouldn't be feeling sick for that long...

If you are preoccupied by it, then you are increasing your chances of throwing up - it sounds silly but there is a psychological factor involved.

You will have an extremely off stomach - I don't know how to describe it, you just KNOW that puke is about to be coming up your oesophagus. Plus you will salivate, I believe for its neutralizing effects against the acidity of your stomach contents.

I can somehow stop myself from puking... if I'm ill, I'll get the nausea and excess saliva and my heart rate will increase but then it doesn't go any further than that. :dontknow: I haven't been sick since I was about 11.

If I'm being sick spontaneously (i.e. not induced by alcohol or whatever), my body goes heavy and cold, my mouth starts watering, my head starts spinning. Gives me enough time to dash to the bathroom, where I stand over the sink: not the toilet - somehow that only strengthens the idea that I'm going to be sick. I've never thown up in the sink, if I can feel my stomach churning, and I'm actually going to vom, I step over to the toilet, shut my eyes and let it go.

EDIT: This has only happened a handful of times - I can probably count the number of times I've thrown up from illness on two hands, from my childhood until now.

If you're about to vom then you will know about it. Trust me.

Yeah same, its a blessing cos being sick is just horrible.. but its also a curse because the nausea is apparently a lot worse than being sick itself
