Carrying more than one fetus
If a woman is pregnant with twins, triplets, or more, she may be more prone to this. Having more than one fetus inside the womb doubles the chemical changes the body goes through at the very least. This could potentially trigger morning sickness.
Women with motion sickness are more prone to morning sickness. This could be due to the already present imbalance that a person has. Coupled with the rise of pregnancy hormones, nausea and vomiting are readily triggered.
Migraine Headaches with Nausea
If a woman suffers from migraine headaches that are accompanied by nausea or vomiting, she is at higher risk of being afflicted with morning sickness. Aside from hormonal changes, strong light, varied scent, or even weather changes may trigger migraine headaches. These same stimuli may also trigger or aggravate morning sickness.
The only true treatment for pregnancy morning sickness is the passing of each trimester and ultimately, the delivery of the baby. However, there are simple things that a woman can do to make it more bearable and less uncomfortable.
Food that Baby Wants
For some reason, when a woman is pregnant, there are certain food or drinks that a woman craves or suddenly hates. One of the ways a woman can ease pregnancy morning sickness is by following what her body wants. Eat what you want to eat and stay away from what causes you to be irritated or uncomfortable, even if it is a food that you used to love. Forcing yourself to eat something that your body is rejecting could trigger another bout of nausea or vomiting.
Eat Often, Manage Portions
They say that you need to eat for two but you also need to watch what you eat so that the baby won’t become too big. You may eat small, frequent meals so as not to overstretch your stomach. Filling your stomach to the brim may cause you to be more nauseous. An empty stomach may cause hyperacidity or gassiness. This could result in bitter or acidic taste at the back of the throat, causing you to gag or feel nauseous.
Morning sickness can make you feel dehydrated because you tend to flush out liquids, leaving your body feeling high and dry. Since there’s two of you now and the baby is taking in the nutrients you are ingesting, you need to hydrate yourself more. Eating fruits like watermelon that are high in liquid content may also help. Sucking on hard candy or taking ginger capsules are said to help with the severity of nausea and vomiting.
