nausea and vomiting in pregnancy

Why do I have nausea and vomiting in pregnancy?

  • 70% of pregnant ladies experience nausea during the first trimester, which has been termed as morning sickness, even though it can occur anytime throughout the day.
  • The cause of nausea and vomiting is still unclear, but it is strongly linked to the elevation of estrogen, progesterone and HCG.
  • It also could be due to hypoglycemia and can be treated with frequent snacking.
  • Most cases of nausea and vomiting will stop by week 16-20 of gestation.
Management:
  • Reassurance to the pregnant lady that the case will improve and that it is not associated with a poor pregnancy outcome.
  • Ginger and peppermint have showed to reduce the duration and sensitivity of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy and appear to be safe for the fetus.
  • Frequent snacking and avoid having an empty stomach.
  • Avoid spicy and fatty foods.
  • Take cold drinks.
  • Avoid brushing your teeth immediately after meal. Try to have biscuit or crackers before you get up out of the bed in the morning.
