Causes, Symptoms, and How to Overcome Morning Sickness

Morning sickness, vomiting, or nausea during pregnancy is normal for pregnant women. Morning sickness occurs in early pregnancy, from the 6th to the 12th week. However, it can last longer, even throughout pregnancy.

This condition makes pregnant women uncomfortable. Whereas in the early trimester of pregnancy, pregnant women need a lot of nutrients to support the baby’s growth and development. So what are the causes, symptoms, and how to deal with morning sickness? Let’s see the following reviews.

Definition and Symptoms of Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is a sensation of nausea and vomiting in pregnant women early in pregnancy. This condition usually goes away on its own and doesn’t last long. This condition also generally does not require medical assistance or assistance.

However, if nausea and vomiting occur continuously at the risk of dehydration, pregnant women need immediate help. This condition is known as hyperemesis gravidarum.

Morning sickness is characterized by nausea that appears only in the morning or afternoon or could be all day. Other morning sickness symptoms are dizziness, weakness, and sometimes sensitivity to certain smells.

Causes of Morning Sickness

As explained earlier, morning sickness is normal as long as it’s not excessive. The reason is increased HCG hormone in pregnant women in the early trimester.

An elevated HCG hormone indicates that the pregnancy is healthy because the placenta usually grows. When the HCG hormone returns to normal, the morning sickness will disappear, and pregnant women can carry out their everyday activities.

How to Overcome Morning Sickness

Although not considered dangerous, morning sickness is enough to interfere with daily activities. Food that comes out through vomiting also risks the baby’s growth and development. Well, to overcome and minimize the annoying morning sickness, try the following tips.

1. Rest Enough

Lack of rest can trigger more severe morning sickness. Therefore, ensure quality sleep to minimize excessive nausea and vomiting.

2. Drink Water and stay hydrated

Morning sickness can also be overcome by drinking lots of Water. Drinking enough morning water can reduce pregnant women’s desire to vomit.

3. Eat Little By Little

Keep dry bread or biscuits at the edge of the bed. So when you wake up, your stomach is not empty. Then eat little by little or divide the meal into small but frequent portions. It can reduce morning sickness.

4. Consumption of Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is believed to reduce vomiting or nausea in pregnant women. Some foods that contain vitamin B6 include whole grains, fruits, whole grains, and fish.

5. Take Anti-Nausea Drugs

If nausea and vomiting are very bothersome, the doctor will usually prescribe anti-nausea drugs taken daily. This medicine should only be taken when nausea and vomiting are intolerable.

Those are some things about morning sickness that married couples should know. So, before starting the pregnancy program, make sure you have listened to the reviews above to prepare yourself to overcome morning sickness during pregnancy.
