There is nothing more exciting than to see a positive sign on a pregnancy test and know that in 9 months you will be holding a sweet little babe in your arms. You may have a few weeks of bliss and then without warning, you join the ‘Queasy Club’. Studies show that 75% of women will experience what is known as morning sickness. The term is definitely misleading since the nausea and vomiting can effect you morning, noon, night or all three! Every woman is a little different, but being a 3rd time expectant mother and definitely effected by morning sickness, I thought I would share some of my knowledge about the subject. My current pregnancy has definitely been the worst as far as morning sickness which according to different sources is not common. Morning sickness is more common and tends to be more severe in first pregnancies, although generalities never seem to be true for pregnant women and I have found a lot of women are more sick with subsequent pregnancies than they were with their first.
Of all of the remedies, helpful tips, foods to eat or avoid – the best thing that I had during my morning sickness bout was my husband! Wow – how would I have survived without him!?! My best advice to you is to seek support and don’t be afraid to ask for help! As women I think we want to be independent and feel like we can do it all, but sometimes we just can’t and it is OK. It will make a world of different for you, especially if you have other children.
