What is a prenatal consultation?
Suffering from morning sickness? We can't make it go away, but we can help you cope - and even feel a little better - until it does.
Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time, day or night. It usually begins around the 6th week of pregnancy, peaks around week 9, and disappears by weeks 16 to 18. Although unpleasant, morning sickness is considered a normal part of a healthy pregnancy.
If the nausea and vomiting are mild, there's usually no cause for concern. And fortunately, morning sickness usually goes away by the second trimester.
In the meantime, these things may help keep your stomach in check:
Studies are being done on various complementary and alternative therapies for morning sickness, such as acupressure with wristbands and treatment with ginger or a vitamin B6 supplement. Speak with your doctor to see what therapies are right for you.
You should also talk to your doctor if your nausea or vomiting is severe, or if you're losing weight from vomiting or becoming deyhydrated. If the need arises, your doctor can prescribe medicine or even decide to treat you with intravenous (IV) fluids.
