This information is from health care professionals and groups such as Mayo Clinic, and should be used as a point of reference or as a generality, because each pregnancy is unique:
Morning sickness is a symptom some women feel during early pregnancy. It starts after conception which may or may not occur after unprotected intercourse. So, first confirm that you are pregnant by using a home pregnancy test, and if positive, make an appointment for a health care professional to confirm those results and to start prenatal care.
Once you have a confirmed pregnancy, the morning sickness usually starts around the first 4 to 6 weeks of pregnancy and it tends to get worse over the next month or so after it begins. However, for some women, the queasiness begins as early as two weeks after conception.
Morning sickness for the majority of women stops around the 12 th week, but for many women it continues until the 14th to 16th week. About half of the women feel complete relief by 14 weeks. For the rest, it may take one more month or so for it to stop. It can return later, and for some unlucky women it can come and go throughout the entire pregnancy. There isn't a set time for it to stop because each woman is different, and each pregnancy is different.
If nausea and vomiting persists well into the second trimester (after the 13th week) you should contact your doctor just to be on the safe side. It isn't harmful to you or your baby unless you have excessive vomiting and can't keep anything down. If you are unable to eat or drink fluids and keep it down for 24 hours straight, you may have something called hyperemesis gravidarum. This condition can be harmful to both you and your baby, so you should contact your doctor right away to see if you need any special treatment.
As stated above, each pregnancy is unique, so here is some information from various contributors about their experiences:
I am almost 6 weeks pregnant. I've been vomiting about 3 times a day for the last 5 days. I just took an Ester C vitamin (1000mL), it's a big vitamin C tablet. I bought it at CVS. I felt much better after an hour.
Vitamin C isn't for everyone, that is, too much isn't safe for the baby.
From what I am seeing on the internet you can have morning sickness as soon as 1 week after conception and there after, it can happen in the morning, afternoon or evening. There are several sites out there that can give you more info as well as ways to help curb it. I would suggest you do a search on the internet if you do not get any responses.
You can get sick from the day of conception to 1-3 week after conception, every woman is different, some women don't even experience morning sickness at all
It varies, some women never get it while others will get it throughout their whole pregnancy. I didn't get morning sickness until I was 3 months along and from then to 8 months. I hated the smell of meat cooking and also when my fiance sprayed aftershave. :P
For me it was morning, noon and night for the first 3 months. I think the term, morning sickness is because the most women tend to have it in the morning but from personal experience I can tell you it is not exclusive to morning. I would say to discuss it with your doctor. He or she would know more about it. Good luck getting through that one. It is no fun to be puking like we do when we are pregnant. I was so glad when that part was past and the rest of the pregnancy was a piece of cake.
Usually within a couple of weeks or more. But all women are different. Some never get it. Some only get it for a few weeks when they are a couple of months pregnant.
My mom knew she was pregnant with me within the first 5 days because she was throwing up like crazy. So I suspect it's vastly different for everyone.
Only about 30% of women get morning nausea, not every one vomits.
I got evening nausea with my first and nothing with my second, my sister-in-law was nauseous and vomiting all day with both her pregnancies.
Some people start to feel morning sickness within a few days, and some never get morning sickness. Regardless, it usually disappears by the 4th or 5th month. If you're nauseous in the morning and have at least 1 other symptom like soreness of the breasts or a late period, I would take a home pregnancy test ASAP.
Everyone is different. I only started my morning sickness at week 7,until the 14- 15 week.
That all really depends but it only took a month for it to hit me. Some women are lucky and don't get it.
I started to experience morning sickness about 3 or 4 weeks after conception. It wasn't in the morning though. It usually happens if my stomach is going on empty I get queasy. I just have to make sure I eat a little something, often:)
As early as two weeks after conception.
Many women don't get any morning sickness but if you do it usually starts around the time of a missed period.
In my first pregnancy I would have nausea (no sickness) in the evenings, and in my second I had none at all (and it was twins).
Around six weeks the average. However everyone is different! Some can start few days after conception some will never have it!
Your symptoms of pregnancy will usually appear anywhere from the first week of your expected period to 1-2 weeks after your first week of expected period. Your first signs of pregnancy most commonly include missed period, tender/swollen breasts, change in color of the breasts, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, increased sense of smell, and weight gain.
Some women who are extremely sensitive to the pregnancy hormones can feel queasy from around the time of the first missed period or a few days before. Between five to seven weeks is a common time to start feeling ill. Not everyone does, however, so if it hasn't begun by around eight to ten weeks, it may not be a problem at all.
When You are pregnant it doesn't necessarily have to be in the morning.
I was supposed to get my period 2 days ago. I haven't yet. I am also experiencing morning sickness, hunger, breast are a little tender and head aches. I have even had what seems to be period cramps. My period is never late and the cramps usually indicate it is starting. I went to my doctor yesterday. The urine test was negative so I then went to the hospital to have a blood test. I haven't gotten the results but my doctor explained that it may not say I am because some women actually have to be 1 1/2 to 2 months pregnant before a blood test will even show it. I am to repeat the blood test for the next three weeks if they come back negative because my doctor says it is highly unlikely that I am faking or my mind is tricking me into morning sickness. I would say I am pregnant and so are you.
The term morning sickness is actually kind of confusing for people because you can get morning sickness at any time during the day or evening. Some people have sickness for just a couple months, but some last for the entire pregnancy. It varies from person to person and pregnancy to pregnancy.
Around 2-4 weeks after conception but sometimes longer. Not every women has morning sickness.
Yes, nausea and even vomiting in the mornings can be caused by other things. One of the most likely is low blood sugar. While sleeping, you are not taking in any food or calories but your body is still using them up. So, some people's bodies are not properly regulating blood sugars and the levels may go too low at night. This is also what causes many women who have morning sickness in pregnancy to have those symptoms. If you eat five or six small meals during the day, with the last one of them prior to bed being mostly protein, you can keep your blood sugars more even, which may prevent the morning dips in blood sugar levels and those associated symptoms. Try also eating a saltine cracker first thing in the morning and follow that, when nausea has passed, with a well balanced small meal. Try to eat something every two or three hours during the day.
Another cause of morning sickness when not pregnant can be acid reflux disease, also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). This usually involves people who are overweight but not always and who frequently eat a large amount before going to bed. Lying down after eating can aggravate the condition, so it is usually advised that you not lie down for at least 15 minutes after a meal and eat small meals every few hours instead of large ones. In GERD, the valve that prevents food from backflow from your stomach back up into your esophagus, doesn't operate properly and food and stomach acids can move backwards into the esophagus and create heartburn and nausea and sometimes vomiting. If you also have hyperacidity of the stomach contents (often caused simply by what has been eaten), then this will also increase the likelihood of morning nausea and vomiting as it accumulates over night when not needed for digestion. This is a disorder that should be discussed with a doctor or other health care professional to determine what treatment, if any, is needed. GERD, in a few cases, can cause damage to the esophagus, so it is something that should be addressed.
Usually at around 12-16 weeks. Some women then experience it towards the end of pregnancy, but this is then more typically caused by the baby pressing on the stomach. However, just as every woman is different, every woman's pregnancy symptoms are also different. While some women never get morning sickness, others will find that theirs finishes at around 12 weeks, others not until 24 weeks and others have it for the whole pregnancy!
== == Morning sickness, if you get it at all, usually lasts until the second trimester. Not to say that a few times in the second trimester is abnormal. A few women have morning sickness later in their pregnancy, though. For the majority of women it stops around the 12th week, but for many women it continues until the 14th to 16th week. About half of the women feel complete relief by 14 weeks. For the rest, it may take one more month or so for it to stop. It can return later, and for some unlucky women it can come and go throughout the entire pregnancy. There is not a set time for it to stop because each woman is different, and each pregnancy is different.
If nausea and vomiting persists well into the second trimester (after the 13th week) you should contact your doctor just to be on the safe side. It is not harmful to you or your baby unless you have excessive vomiting and can't keep anything down.
If you have severe morning sickness, talk to your health care professional who can determine if you will need a prescription medication. The medication worked for me, but is different for every woman. Do not take over the counter medications without checking with your medical professional first.
Should you be unable to eat or drink fluids and keep it down for 24 hours straight, you may have something called hyperemesis gravidarum. This condition can be harmful to both you and your baby, so you should contact your doctor right away, if these more severe symptoms occur, to see if you need any special treatment. * Everyone is different when it comes to the lovely symptoms and side effects of pregnancy. My morning sickness went away as soon as I hit my 4th month, like someone hit the off switch, while other women have it all the way through their pregnancy. Try eating a piece of dry toast or some crackers to settle your stomach, things will get better. Congratulations and enjoy being pregnant, it can be one of the best times in your life. == == * Each pregnancy is different, some will not have morning sickness at all, some will have it the whole nine months. If you are lucky, it should start to get better by your 13th week. * It all depends on the person. With my first child I was sick the whole pregnancy. I lost 30 lbs. With my second child I lost 20 lbs but was only sick until the middle of the second trimester (unless I didn't eat first thing in the morning). For my last child I was only a little nauseated. * Normal morning sickness peaks around weeks 8-10 and feels much better by week 12 and is gone completely by week 16.
No, not every woman will experience morning sickness during pregnancy. About 75% of pregnant women have morning sickness at sometime during their pregnancy. The good thing is, obviously, you won't be sick. The bad thing is that it may be harder for you to notice your symptoms of pregnancy if you are not planning it.
Here is advice and input:
No. It is a very common condition for women who are pregnant, but some don't even experience "morning sickness". Some women have it early in the pregnancy, for others it is late or in the middle, and in a few women it lasts the entire 9 months. I, however, am one of the lucky ones, I am 14 weeks pregnant with no morning sickness at all.
At least one fourth of all pregnancies do not involve morning sickness. Approximately 50 to 75 % of pregnant women experience a period in early pregnancy with nausea, and about 30% also experience vomiting.
Some studies have shown that you are more likely to have morning sickness if:
Everyone is different. Some people don't experience sickness at all. Some people do all day, everyday. Some people only every once in a while. In fact some people have no symptoms at all.
Of course every woman is different, some may experience no morning sickness at all, whereas others will experience it all the way through their pregnancy.
Nausea with vomiting is common, but a slightly more severe form of morning sickness, and too frequent vomiting can be problematic, causing dehydration, improper nutrition for mother and baby, and even electrolyte imbalance. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids (sports drinks are a good choice to replace the electrolytes, if tolerated). You would want to report it to your obstetrician if you vomit four times or more in one day or if you are unable to hold down any food or fluids for a full 24 hours.
Some lucky women do not experience any morning sickness, which is just as normal and does not mean anything is wrong with the pregnancy. And some have very severe cases of unrelenting vomiting, which is a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It requires medical intervention to assure proper fluid balance and nutrition.
The smell of cooking meat or of certain other foods or chemicals can trigger morning sickness, so try to allow plenty of flow through ventilation from the kitchen, ask someone else to do the cooking, and sniff lemons or ginger to help offset the offensive odors that cause the sickness.Additional Information:I know with my two pregnancies, I never actually got sick to the point I was throwing up. I had my good days when I did not feel sick, and days where I felt sick all day. So I guess it all depends on the woman. I also found that when I did feel sick, eating ginger snap cookies or drinking ginger ale helped a lot. So, try eating anything with ginger in it and it should help the nausea.
See the related questions below for additional information on alleviating morning sickness.
yes the vomiting has multiple down sides a: dehydration b: erosion of the esophagus...... you should definitely follow up w/ your internal medicine physician.
If you are vomiting this in the early mornings, when you first wake up, it is not unusual. The reason for the color is that you don't have anything in your stomach. This is referred to as morning sickness, and may indicate that you are pregnant. If vomiting is accompanied by a fever or abdominal pain, or persists for more than a day or two, see your doctor. These can be symptoms of digestive disorders.
It is different with every women normally 8 to 10 days after Ovulation you may or may not bleed other wise known as spotting. You may feel bloated or moody in your first month along with headaches and fatigue
Yes. Phobophobia is the name for the fear of fear itself.
Pregnancy symptoms are different for every person. Some women notice less symptoms in their 2nd, 3rd and so on, pregnancies and some women never have morning sickness, tender breats, etc. If you feel that there is cause for concern it is best to consult your doctor who has your medical history to give you the best answer for your personal situation.
Having given birth twice by induction, I can tell you what they did for me.
There are two main ways to induce labor; pitocin given by injection and/or punturing the membrane, also called "breaking the waters". When this is done, surgical utensil shaped like a crochet needle is inserted into the cervix via vaginal canal and tears a small hole in the amniotic sac. This causes the "water to break" and usually induces labor shortly thereafter.
The amniotic sac can and usually does rupture by itself when the fetus is fully grown, but this method was used on me because I was at full-term and any more growth may have resulted in health problems for the baby and I.
Word of advice: If you plan on having an epidural during labor, ask your doctor/midwife/anesthesiologist to get that going BEFORE they induce your labor. When my labor was induced, I went immediately into hard labor (also called 3rd phase) after my membrane sac was ruptured. I was only 4 centimeters dialated and fully effaced. I went from 4 to 8 centimeters within 1 very painful hour. This can be very traumatizing for anyone in their first labor, especially if they had planned on getting an epidural.
I never needed to use pitocin, so you may want to ask your doctor how this process works.
If you are wanting to be induced before your due date then there is a risk that the baby would be born prematurely. Dates and even ultrasound can sometimes be a little 'off' with accurately dating the age of a pregnancy and/ or baby. 37 weeks is usually the 'official' cut- off point for a pre- term labor but one baby may be mature at this age while another may be immature.It may risk his/her health and even their life if they were induced. It is usually so much better to wait unless there is a good medical reason to induce. Once I was in hospital with a woman who had insisted on an induction because she was so depressed with being pregnant, but she later regretted it. She was more depressed than before and now had an infant in special care as well.
As for full- term inductions, I would heartily second what the first contributor said. Artificially induced labors are so much more difficult to cope with. Most labors are painful but somehow the pain is more vicious and difficult to get on top of. It lacks the rhythm of the natural process. At least, it did for me.
I was induced with both of my children. My first pregnancy went so smoothly that I couldn't wait to do it again before I had even left the hospital. I had gestational diabetes with both children. Though I didn't have it, high blood pressure may also be another cause to induce labor. With my son, I had low amniotic fluid which the doctor's monitored 2 or more times a week. If it reaches and remains below a certain point, they may induce labor for that reason. It is always safest to push the pregnancy out as close to the due date as possible, but if it becomes medically necessary doctor's may choose to induce. There are many reasons why doctor's would choose to induce labor. If they think the child, or mother's, life or health may be at risk, then they will induce. Inducing labor is not much different from natural labor in that progress can happen in any stage and at any rate. I had two very different outcomes with induction so it varies from person to person and birth to birth.
Not necessarily. I was severely sick my entire pregnancy. I had to take a prescription medication because I was vomiting so much. I had a boy.
It depends on when the discharge is occurring; if it is immediately after intercourse then it is just a combination of fluids from your and your partner's bodies, vaginal secretions and semen. If you are discharging days after intercourse, then that may be a sign of pregnancy. Check the link.
== == That depends upon what you have eaten before. It will look the color of the food you ate when still undigested food in your stomach, or the ordinary color of emesis (vomit) after some digestion, but when your stomach is empty (like in the morning when you first wake up), it usually is a thin liquid that is yellowish in color.
Although there are other factors involved as known causes for morning sickness, one of the main causes of morning sickness is low blood sugar (also called hypoglycemia). Examples of other causes besides hypoglycemia are fluctuating hormone levels, and some people believe that morning sickness is a built-in method from nature to protect the early fetal development from injuring-microbes that might be consumed in foods, such as meats, that are commonly associated with food-borne illness.)
When you are very early in the pregnancy, your body has not yet adjusted to "eating for two" and may not be regulating your blood sugars as well as usual. While you are sleeping, and not consuming any foods, the fetus is still "eating" your stored calories. This makes your blood sugar dip low by morning, which typically causes nausea (even when not in pregnancy).
Proteins are metabolized slower in the body than are carbohydrates, meaning that the calories last longer when you eat proteins and keep your blood sugars more stable when fasting at night. That is why if you eat a protein snack at night (cheese, meat, peanut butter, etc.), it can help your blood sugar stay more stabilized until breakfast.
Often, if you will eat the very first thing upon waking up one or two plain soda crackers (aka saltines), it will help prevent morning sickness because they are a rapidly absorbed source of carbohydrates that can more quickly increase the blood sugar levels to replenish. Once that has relieved any nausea from the low blood sugar, you then eat a nutritious breakfast (that includes proteins to steady the blood sugars) to help you start the day with fewer morning sickness symptoms.
Not all women experience morning sickness, which is another sign that it is likely associated with how a woman's body metabolizes calories and stabilizes blood sugar levels. That is why, in some women whose bodies do that less well than others (even when not pregnant), "morning sickness" can happen any time of the day and not just in the morning. It also can happen either only at the beginning of pregnancy or continue longer, even up until delivery in some unfortunate women.
The best all around plan for avoiding morning sickness symptoms (or nausea due to hypoglycemia at any time of the day), is to eat small portions but more frequently. These frequent mini-meals should include all types of foods, i.e, proteins, complex carbohydrates (like fruits and vegetables), fats, whole grains, etc., and avoid as much as possible the simple carbohydrates (like saltines, most breads that are not whole grain, sweets, and other "starches" like corn, white rice and white potatoes). Five or more smaller meals is much better than only three big ones. Some women switch to eating every two or three hours all day with protein at night to keep the blood sugars even.
Ask your obstetrician to suggest the most appropriate diet for you while your baby develops.
Instead of taking any products, I used to change my way of life. For example, changing my food uses in the morning to avoid morning sickness, avoid warm water to prevent swollen feet and wore adapted bras to deal with breast pain.
The month that the baby was created. Basically the month you had sex that got you pregnant
minor disorder is define as the dicimforts which associated with pregnancy eg nosia vomiting heart burning etc
Ginger helps relieve nausea. Many women sip ginger ale or eat Ginger Snap cookies. If you do not like the taste of Ginger Snaps, buy ground ginger and put in your food when you are cooking, or you can fill gelatin capsules (get them at the drug store) with ground ginger and take like medicine (check with your doctor to be sure it is okay for you). There are also Ginger candies (often found in Asian markets) and Crystallized ginger in the spice section of the grocery store to eat like candy. Some women say that even just sniffing fresh ginger slices helps.
Chicken stock or broth can be made or bought canned and add quarter sized pieces of fresh ginger (start with four quarter sized round slices and then adjust by taste for more or less ginger flavor) and simmer the broth until the ginger slices have turned a darker color. You may also want to add some lemon grass stems for more flavor. Make this ahead and freeze in ice cube trays so you can make a cup in the microwave with one or two cubes whenever you feel the nausea.
If you like sweeter things, then make ginger tea with water and ginger slices plus honey (or sweetener or sugar) and a twist of lemon to sip. It can also be made ahead and kept in refrigerator to sip cold or reheat in the microwave. Honey is fine for moms-to-be to eat, you have developed the antibodies that are needed to be able to safely eat honey, but it is not something to give a child until at least one year old. Your unborn baby will not be harmed if you eat honey.
Heartburn and indigestion occurs generally in the first trimester and the last trimester. It's very common. The best thing you can do is to start eating smaller/lighter meals and not lie down for at least a half hour after eating, keeping head up on two pillows instead of flat. Many doctors recommend Tums to relieve acid indigestion. Or you could try some of the products for nausea that contain ginger, like Gingera. Ginger has known to help relieve the nausea and indigestion from morning sickness and indigestion in pregnancy, plus motion sickness and sea sickness. There are also wrist bands for sea sickness that use acupressure to stop nausea that many pregnant women have found helpful. Sniff or suck on a slice of lemon or eat soda crackers or saltines to help keep your blood sugar from being too low. Other foods many women suggest are: salty potato chips, pretzels, Popsicles, gelatin desserts, watermelon, sips of lemonade.
If you let foods cool from cooking temperatures to room temperature before serving, since foods have less aroma at that temperature than when hot.
See the related question below: "Why does eating a protein meal late at night prevent morning sickness?" Other contributors have said:
* There is always the "eat crackers before you get out of bed" thing. For me this did not work. I wore sea bands for most of my pregnancy and they worked pretty well. You can buy them in just about any drug store where they have motion sickness medicine. They are little stretchy bands with little plastic balls on them that you wear on your wrists. The little ball pushes something in your wrist that short circuits the message to your brain to be sick. They work really well. Other things that helped me were sucking on lemon slices (sounds awful, but really helps!) and eating dry Cheerios. I kept Cheerios next to my bed for months. Also try to eat them right before you go to sleep and if you get up during the night, try to eat a handful. This almost always prevented sickness the next morning. * Although they taste sour and not sweet, lemons actually have more sugar than many other sweeter tasting fruits. The sweet flavored foods often add to nausea in morning sickness, so that is why lemons can work so well. Some women find salty flavored foods are better. Cheerios, like saltine crackers, are another source of a fast acting carbohydrate that converts quickly in your body to raise your blood sugar, but does not taste too sweet. See the related question below about proteins and morning sickness.
* Many moms swear that ginger helps alleviate the nausea that comes with pregnancy. Eat anything with ginger in it, such as ginger cookies, hard ginger candy or crystallized ginger. Drinking ginger tea is also great, calming your stomach naturally. Just break a piece of fresh ginger root, grate and put in hot water. There are also ginger capsules sold today. Check with your doctor first to be sure that taking this supplement is okay for you. == == * Morning sickness can be prevented by eating plain crackers before even sitting up in bed. Crystallized ginger pieces are good to keep in your hand bag to prevent nausea, as a handy snack. Ginger tea and honey is also very effective. * If you dwell on the fact that you feel ill, you will continue to feel that way, try to distract yourself from it. * Avoid being at your PC for too long, the refresh flicker on the screen is known to cause morning sickness in some people. * Try yogurt, ice cream, apple sauce, and baked potatoes which are also great options. * If you don't like ginger, try a little apple cider vinegar in water with a little honey. This is also very effective. * Saltine crackers and 7-up. Leave some on the bedside table and nibble a few before you even get up. * I found ginger very effective, either plain ginger or ginger beer. A proper one though not ginger flavor soda.
It might be anxiety but it's too general. Is it like this every day? Just today? It may be because you haven't eaten enough within the last 8 hours which causes stomach aches as well. It really isn't anything to worry about but if it continues to presist and it really and I mean really concerns you, go see your family doctor.
Some people believe that intense morning sickness is a sign that they're pregnant with a boy, while mild morning sickness means a girl. Other people believe that getting sick in the morning is another sign of a boy, and morning sickness at night a girl.
Have a drink of a cold glass of water. If you have medicene take that, that may help a lot! exhaling in your nose and exhaling out your mouth can help you from being or feeling sick/queezy. If you have a tummy ache then suck on a peppermint- it always helps sooth the stomach like gaviscon does. if you have cramps, zantac is a reccomended tablet to get. this message is coming from a young girl with IBS. hopefully this helped
Same compensation as what?
No. Some women have it right from around 2 weeks after sex, some women have it all the way through pregnancy, some women only have it for a couple of weeks, some women don't experience it until the end of pregnancy and some women never get it. Just like every woman's body is different, the pregnancy symptoms they experience are also different and so some women never get morning sickness
