Pregnancy Morning Sickness

Almost every pregnant woman gets morning sickness but no one knows for certain why.

Morning sickness, most pregnant women are hit by morning sickness. Studies show almost 80% of pregnant women are not spared from nausea and vomiting especially during their first trimester. Nausea is an uneasiness of the stomach that often accompanies the urge to vomit, but it doesn't always lead to vomiting.

It usually occurs in the 4th and 6th week of pregnancy and tapers off in your second trimester. Unfortunately, some women might suffer morning sickness throughout their pregnancy. Some of my friends went through such sever morning sickness that they could not go to work or do anything around the home.

Not every pregnant woman gets morning sickness, I was fortunate not to have morning sickness for both my pregnancies and it is normal. So don't be concerned if you are spared that experience, be thankful.

Morning sickness can strike at any time of the day, though it usually hits in the morning and gets better over the course of the day.

Can you overcome morning sickness? Eating right can ease the queasiness and relieve morning sickness. Consider eating smaller portions but at more regular frequency, such as eating six small meals instead of 3 big ones. Consuming heavy meals can cause or worsen morning sickness.

If your morning sickness gets unbearable, consult your healthcare provider for advice.
