First Trimester and Morning Sickness are sometimes synonymous. And the morning sickness may not be just in the mornings. You can feel queasy at any time of the day. Any smell can throw you off. Or a certain type of food may make you more nauseous than others. I remember when I was pregnant, I could not eat my favorite foods like pasta and chicken. Some fortunate women don’t feel this sickness at all while some may face the excessive sickness called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. There was news some months ago where the Duchess of Cambridge was rumored to have this and was hospitalized. Yes there are some extreme cases and it is better to take advise of doctors in those cases.
I did not have HG but I was still taking a prescribed medicine for Nausea in order to keep the vomiting low that enabled me to eat well. You can always take suggestions from your doctor for safe medications to help with nausea. Here are some at home tips written by my close friend and medical nutritionist / dietician Manasi Joshi to help alleviate the issue on her blog here :
Hope these tips help with your morning sickness and your mornings are more beautiful soon!
