What are the symptoms of morning sickness?
Symptoms range in severity, timing and duration. True to the name, some women feel nauseous and/or throw up just in the morning. Others feel sick all day. Rarely, some women experience what's called hyperemesis gravidarum: a very severe form of the condition in which nausea and vomiting is so extreme that intravenous hydration and nutrition may be required.
When does morning sickness start & how long does it last?
Signs of morning sickness typically begin to appear between weeks five through seven of pregnancy. Symptoms may build in frequency or severity until about week ten. Most women begin to feel much better around week twelve, though for some symptoms may gradually diminish over the next few weeks or so. Very rarely symptoms will continue to persist, even through the entire pregnancy for some women.
Fortunately, for the majority the signs and symptoms only last through the first trimester and are responsive to natural and home remedies.
From saltine crackers to herbs to prescription medication, there is no shortage of remedies and so-called cures out there. It is likely that a combination of home remedies will create the best results. Click the link above for twelve effective natural remedies to try for your pregnancy nausea.
