- Morning Sickness
The common name for nausea and sickness often experienced during early pregnancy, morning sickness can happen morning, noon and night!
Snacking on plain foods such as crackers can help. Keep some by your bed and, when you first wake up, nibble a few crackers and then rest for a while before getting up. It often helps to eat little and often. Wrist acupressure bands may help, and also ginger tablets or syrup.
Morning sickness usually gradually wears off towards the end of the first trimester and stops around the 16th to 20th week.
