Morning Sickness

Morning sickness refers to the nausea and vomiting that some women have when they become pregnant. It is caused by the sudden increase in hormones during pregnancy. Although morning sickness is more common in the morning, it can last all day for some women. Morning sickness is very common early in a pregnancy. It tends to go away later in pregnancy, and it's almost always gone by the second trimester (the fourth month). But there isn't a set time for it to stop because each woman is different, and each pregnancy is different.Morning sickness can become more of a problem if you can't keep any foods or fluids down and begin to lose a lot of weight. Many doctors think morning sickness is a good sign because it means the it means the placenta and fetal membranes is developing well.The tips below may help reduce morning sickness.Eat small meals throughout the day so that you're never too full or too hungry.Avoid rich, fatty foods.Avoid foods with smells that bother you.Curd rice, idlis and any steamed items.The best medication is to keep changing places. The new environment might help you for a time and again patients have to find another place and it goes on and on.

Hi Delphine!

the placenta and fetal membranes is developing well//

Delphine if you could use simpler (I mean non-medical terms) to explain it would be useful for many.

It is a boon to find a doctor like to you finding time to share their knowledge with others thro' personal blogs.

Keep writing.

Non-medical terms for those internal physiological body parts, Mr. Joseph, I am afraid Doc could come up with any to explain those important terminologies.

If she goes on expanding those, it would be very time consuming for her, then she has to kill more time, rather than giving the essence of what actually she has to say.

God may bless her for giving such a heart to sit and do this kind of service "selflessly," amidst her work load.
