I'm pregnant for the first time, and I've never really had morning sickness until recently. What are the normal signs and symptoms of morning sickness? What are some signs and symptoms I should look out for that would indicate that I should call my doctor? Are there any foods that can affect the severity of morning sickness?
Congratulations on your pregnancy. I had bad morning sickness with both my pregnancies, that became hyperemesis with the second. Here are some suggestions of what might help you deal with it:
- eating crackers as soon as you wake up
- small meals regularly
- lots of high quality protein (this one really worked for me)
- staying hydrated, sipping lemon water or 1Tbsp apple cider vinegar in water all day
- acupressure bands
- Pregnancy of Nausea homeopathic remedy
Stay connected with your midwife or doctor. If you feel terrible and can't keep water down, you'll know to need to seek medical help. Good luck.
