Morning sickness is normally associated with the early stages of pregnancy and is not pleasant but often times manageable for most women. The term morning sickness refers to nausea and vomiting or the general feeling of nausea experienced in the first weeks of pregnancy. Statistically, over 50% of pregnant women experience morning sickness in the first trimester and more than 90% experience some form of nausea and or vomiting, to varying degrees, during their pregnancy.
Unfortunately, there are times when the morning sickness can move from being mild to severe and really hinder the day to day activities of the mom-to-be. So, what can an expectant mom do if she is suffering from morning sickness? Use drugs to alleviate the discomfort? Although there are drugs out there for morning sickness, there are also alternative remedies that can help ease the symptoms of morning sickness while also leaving you, the mom-to-be, at ease of not putting your baby at risk with all sorts of drugs.
It is important to know the difference between typical morning sickness and severe morning sickness which is called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. For the more common type of morning sickness, an expectant mom can manage the symptoms through lifestyle changes. Some lifestyle changes during this period can include, sipping on ginger and peppermint teas, munching on saltines, allowing yourself a bit more time to get up in the mornings, sucking some ice cubes if you cannot keep regular water down. When it comes to severe morning sickness different methods will need to be taken into consideration.
