About Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is the nausea and vomiting experienced by women during the first few months of pregnancy, usually from 6-12 weeks of pregnancy. About 75% of pregnant women suffer from this condition of which about 1/3 have vomiting.

Also, morning sickness can be one of the first signs indicative of being pregnant. It is a common condition during pregnancy and can occur at any time of the day.

Though this condition can last from a few weeks to few months, the feeling of nausea may be felt anytime during pregnancy. Most of the nausea is triggered by smells.

Though morning sickness is not harmful to the fetus, severe vomiting may prevent one from keeping the food down or may prevent one from being inclined to eat. Morning sickness may lead to electrolyte imbalance, dehydration and malnutrition which might affect the health of the fetus as well as the mother to be. Consult a doctor in such a situation.


Some Tips To Prevent Morning Sickness

  • On waking up in the morning make a habit of getting up slowly from the bed.
  • Take a few biscuits or crackers in the early morning on getting up. Do not keep the stomach empty.
  • Let someone else take over the cooking for sometime especially if food smell is affecting you.
  • Eat small and frequent meals throughout the day.
  • Eat light but nutritious food. Avoid oily, fried and spicy food.
  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking too.
  • Relax and don't stress.
  • An early morning walk in fresh air will benefit as will some light exercise like a yogic breathing or pranayama will help ease this feeling.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing.
  • Vitamin B6 supplementation is believed to help.
  • Avoid warm areas in the house since heat tends to increase nausea.
  • Salted potato chips have been found to calm down the stomach.
  • There are certain natural home remedies that can help. These are given below.
