The dreaded 'morning sickness', extreme nausea and vomiting,will affect around 90% of pregnant women. Despite the name,morning sickness can strike at any time of day, so if you getthrough the early morning without feeling nauseous, it may getyou later in the day! Just why women have to go through this isnot known - maybe because men haven't bothered to find out!However, there are some things you can do to minimise thisunpleasant part of pregnancy.
1. Ask your medical advisor whether you can take vitamin B6. Adose of approximately 100 mg per day has been shown to reducethe feeling of nausea.
2. Eat foods rich in the B vitamins: examples are nuts, chicken,fish, liver and advocados.
3. Take frequent sips of liquids such as water, soup, tea, andlemonade. This can help in several ways: when you vomit youloose a lot of fluids and it is important to keep your bodyhyderated at all times. It also makes vomiting less unpleasantif you have something to bring up. Vomiting when the stomach isempty is even more unpleasant than when you have something tobring up.
