Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is the most terrible thing about pregnancy. Believe me if you are the person who doesn't have to go through morning sickness then you are the luckiest person on earth. If you're feeling well and rosy, you're the envy of many, let me assure you. Sadly morning sickness does not only happen in the mornings. It hits you anytime, any place and anywhere. You just can't help it when it comes and it sometimes stays with you till the day of delivery. Morning sickness normally disappears when you are into your second trimester but for some, it goes right into the labour room with them.

The exact reason of morning sickness is not yet known but it has been linked to the raise in hormone levels i.e. human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), which is also the hormone pregnancy test kits detect. Unfortunately for women, there is no medical help for morning sickness but there are many self-help methods of reducing the symptoms and the severity of it.

Following are a few self-help methods, which help reduce morning sickness.

  • Eat, eat and eat. Try eating all the time. Do not keep your stomach empty. But that doesn't mean you eat heavy meals. Eat little but eat all the time. Now, this one sounds more like a bad case of encouraging obesity but believe me it helps. Remember pregnancy is not the time you should be going on a diet. An apple here, a biscuit there, some fruits, take a nap and then another apple here and some fruits there....you get the picture.

  • Nap, nap and nap. Take all the rest you can. Please don't overwork yourself. There is nothing like good sleep. Take a good nap when your other children are sleeping. A good nap will make you feel a lot better.

  • B6 and zinc are known to reduce nausea. It's been known that vitamin B6 and zinc helps ease discomfort. But make sure you check with your doctor before taking them. Alternatively, take a banana, raisins or hazelnuts. They are wonderful remedies for reducing nausea.

  • Avoid strong smells. These strong smells include smell from the kitchen, smoke and alcohol.

  • For relieving yourself of the nausea you can sip a cup of water with squeezed lemon, lime or a piece of ginger in it.
