Guide to Morning Sickness

Expectant Parents Credit HealingdreamMorning sickness is a common ailment for the first few months of pregnancy. Because of the hormones your body produces to maintain your pregnancy, your stomach is affected. Not all women develop morning sickness and, of those who do, not all of these women experience vomiting. 

While this is an uncomfortable feeling that gets in the way of your day, doctors view this development as a good sign, meaning the placenta is developing well. If you experience excessive vomiting, speak to your obstetrician because this can harm you and your unborn baby.

Reduce the effects of morning sickness by eating smaller meals more often, drinking fluids before and after, but not during meals, and eating soda crackers before you first get up in the morning. Get lots of rest during the day, avoid smells and foods that make you sick, avoid excessive heat, sniff ginger or lemons, eat watermelon, salty potato chips or drink lemonade. Learn more tips and health information in the following articles.
