Morning Sickness FAQs

Morning Sickness FAQs

Morning sickness unfortunately isn't confined to the morning. Some frequently asked questions answered.   

I feel nauseated all the time - not just in the morning - throughout the day. Is this normal?

Unfortunately morning sickness is not limited to the morning and around 60 to 80 percent of women reportedly feel nauseous in the morning, evening and night. Misery loves company so while you may feel better reading this and knowing you are not alone, this doesn't mean you should treat it likely. Speak to your doctor at once especially if you keep vomiting. You may even need to be hospitalised because if you keep throwing up both you and your baby will get dehydrated. You will probably need to be hydrated intravenously with the help of electrolytes, fluids and glucose. 

Can morning sickness affect my baby? 

If your morning sickness is relatively mild, your baby will be absolutely fine, as long as you don't keep throwing up and are able to retain fluids and food. What is important is that you mustn't be throwing up all the time so you get dehydrated. As long as there is sufficient food and water in your body, your baby will be fine. 

Remember to eat food rich in minerals and vitamins. If you like your cornflakes, pick one up that's fortified with extra minerals. Eat vitamin supplements along with food instead of taking them randomly throughout the day. They are easier on the stomach. 

Can I do anything to reduce nausea? 

Don't we wish there was some miracle cure for reducing morning sickness without any side effects? Unfortunately there's nothing of the sort. However, there are certain things that could help reduce morning sickness and soothe nausea. Try eating small meals throughout the day. If possible, keep chewing on something or the other. The meals should be low in fat and high in carbohydrates. Avoid eating foods with offensive odours as it may trigger nausea. You will find that you feel nauseaus after eating certain foods. Once you've figured out what makes you sick, stay away from it. 

Another tip to help reduce nausea: Try taking 50 milligrams of vitamin B6 twice a day. However, this does not work for all women but if it does work for you, great! In any case, the vitamin helps strengthen the immune system, helps metabolise certain amino acids and is good for you, so take it anyway. Foods which include this vitamin are: 

  • Bananas
  • Brown rice
  • Fish
  • Whole grains
  • Corn
  • Nuts
  • Avocados

How long will this morning sickness last? 

On an average, morning sickness lasts anywhere from three weeks to three months. Some women hardly feel nauseous while others feel sick right up to their pregnancy. However, it is rare that a woman feels nauseous throughout  at the most eating something or a certain smell may trigger nausea. 

Will I be more likely to develop motion sickness when pregnant? 

While there is no obvious link between motion sickness and pregnancy, anything can trigger off morning sickness, even motion, especially if you are slightly prone to motion sickness  the feeling will only get magnified. 

Will a change of place or weather make me more prone to morning sickness?

Yes, it is possible for you to feel sicker when you've moved to a new place, till you've adjusted to the place and climate. If you have planned a holiday at a hill station, make sure you increase your water intake, as the climate is drier and dehydration is common.

Hi, I got married in 2008, didnt plan for a baby for 1 year. Have not taken any contraceptives till date. I had two miscarriages in 2010 (May 2010 and Nov 2010- both times didnt cross 60 days ). My husband and me were checked and told that we are normal. I have tested positive for pregnancy using home pregnancy test today(32nd day after my last period- LMP- 23-Mar-2011). I do not have any morning sickness till now for any of the pregnancies. Current Symptoms-Urinating more frequently than before, tender breasts, very tired. I have read few articles that having no morning sickness is a sign of miscarriage. IS this true. I am really worried. Can any doctor or expert practioner clear my doubt. I really pray that i carry my baby to full term this time. Please help. Thanks
Morning sickness is a misnomer since the symptoms can act up any time, even at night. If you are having a hard time coping with morning sickness weeks, try some natural home remedies. It's a safer approach than taking medications during pregnancy.
