Its estimated that 70-80% of pregnant women will experience morning sickness (Health Line, 2019). How often and how bad will vary from each woman and pregnancy.
Morning sickness can start from as early as 4 weeks but it typically kicks in from around 9 weeks.
Morning sickness is the feeling of nausea typically during the first trimester. Morning sickness can be experienced with or without vomit. Yet either way it’s one of the most uncomfortable and unsettling parts of pregnancy.
As the term morning sickness suggests it’s more likely to occur when you first wake up but this is misleading because morning sickness can occur at any time of day.
Below we have included some tips and products to help ease and relieve morning sickness:
Rest - tiredness can make morning sickness worse
Avoid an empty stomach
Eat small & often
Eat nutritious meals & snacks
Start your day with a ginger biscuit before you get out of bed & replace tea with ginger tea
Drink lots of fluids as hydration is key
Be aware & avoid trigger smells that could trigger your morning sickness
Take prenatal vitamins daily to ensure you are getting the right nutrients
Reduce stress by adding meditation into your daily routine
