Morning sickness during first trimester

Morning sickness during first trimester

Have you confirmed pregnancy lately? Are you feeling queasy or experiencing nausea and vomiting when you get up in the morning?

Relax, these are universal signs of pregnancy, and will continue from 6th to 12th week of pregnancy. This feeling is known as morning sickness. Though, this is a depressing state; but exciting also, because you have entered into a new stage of your life, motherhood!

Morning sickness can include symptoms as – loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, unsettled stomach, psychological effects, such as depression or nervousness.

The cause of morning sickness are-

  • Increased amount of hormones (bothHuman chorionic gonadotropin  and oestrogen).
  • Empty stomach.
  • Fluctuations in BP (blood pressure), mainly lowered BP.
  • Food smell can set off nausea.

Ease yourself from morning sickness with these easy tips-

  • Consume something like crackers or sweet biscuits before getting out of bed in the morning.
  • Try to have little, carbohydrate rich meals frequently, as an empty stomach tends to set off nausea.
  • Don’t eat anything that you guess will make you nauseous.
  • Try to drink sufficient amount of liquids such as sips of lemonade, diluted fruit juice, cordial, ginger tea, soup, and try sucking on ice cubes.
  • Try to apply acupressure or acupuncture on the wrist.
  • Try some Vitamin B6 supplements (maximum 200mg per day).
  • Try to wear loose clothes that do not apply pressure on your belly.
  • Take rest whenever feasible.
  • Try to eat cold food instead of hot.

Generally, morning sickness does not harm your unborn baby. But, in some severe cases, experiencing weight loss and dehydration, requires immediate medical treatment.
