Pregnant? Congratulations! Morning Sickness? We feel you!
It’s an unfortunate thing, but you might be surprised to learn it’s not that uncommon. In fact, 4 out of 5 women experience Morning Sickness during pregnancy. Yes, really! Like lots of things for females, it’s caused by pesky hormones. They are the things that ensure your pregnancy continues well though, so we can’t place too much blame!
Most women will start experiencing symptoms early on...hopefully you’ll still be too high on news of your new addition, but that‘s not to say that morning sickness can’t dampen your spirits. And it should never be ignored, especially when sickness becomes intense. If your morning sickness continues after the 14th week and is becoming unbearable, you might have Hyperemesis Gravidarum. This pregnancy complication can cause dehydration and weight loss, neither of which are good for your baby. Be sure to contact your doctor immediately if you think you might be suffering from this.
