Why am I feeling sick? (again!)
No-one knows for sure what causes morning sickness – it could be hormonal changes or an evolutionary response to protect the baby from harmful foods. Some scientists (probably male!) believe it’s all in the mind – but we give them short shrift here…
Why is it called ‘Morning Sickness?’ I feel sick most of the time!
This is because it tends to be worse first thing in the morning when your stomach is empty. Try a dry cracker, a piece of toast, or a plain biscuit twenty minutes or so before you get up – it should help settle your tummy.
How long will it last? (Please say not long!)
The good news is that morning sickness usually ends by the 20 week mark of your pregnancy. The really good news is that up until then there are lots of things you can try to ease it!
