Morning sickness is as misunderstood as many other medical mysteries. Some people claim that it is changes in blood sugar that cause the problem while others are sure that the pregnancy hormones are to blame. While the debate rages expecting mothers are only concerned about one thing – when does morning sickness go away.
Despite its name, morning sickness can strike a pregnant woman at any time of the day or night. The symptoms are typically recorded as nausea, dizziness, light-headedness and/or vomiting. Not all pregnant women get morning sickness, but it is quite a common complaint of pregnancy. There does not seem to be any correlation with this illness. For example, If you suffered with morning sickness during your first pregnancy you may not suffer with it the second time.
When does morning sickness go away?
Morning sickness commonly occurs in the first trimester of pregnancy (the first 12 weeks) and by this time it is usually starting to subside. For some people, however, morning sickness lasts well into the second trimester when it finally subsides and for the unlucky few it may last the entire pregnancy.
What is the cure for morning sickness?
Unfortunately, there are no cures for morning sickness, but there are a few things you can do to try and make pregnant life more bearable. Firstly, try eating first thing in the morning to raise your blood sugar levels. This can be hard if you are feeling particularly unwell, but it is reported to work for many women. Secondly, try ginger tea which is a traditional cure for nausea that has actually been proven scientifically and is perfectly safe.
