Morning Sickness- bleck!

Why do some women get it, and some women don’t? We have no clue! If you are one of the lucky ones that don’t get “morning” sickness, be thankful, and don’t rub it in a sick Soon-to-be-Mama’s face.

While morning sickness (more like All Day sickness) is technically supposed to end when the placenta takes over, it can last well into the second trimester. One Mama describes it as “It’s like when you got really drunk, passed out in the middle of the night, and then woke up at like 4 AM super dizzy and really wishing you would throw-up.”

Those Mama’s that were nauseous say that eating saltines, sucking on lemon slices, loading up on carbs, having protein for breakfast, and “the ocean” were amongst their remedies (I don’t say cure because there is none!). There are some products out there marketed towards helping with morning sickness, like the Preggie Pops, or Preggie Drops, but we give them mixed reviews. You are just as good sucking on a hard candy of your choice.

If it gets to the point where you can’t function, call your doctor and they can even prescribe a pill to take the edge off. Ahh, drugs.
