NAUSEA

 

What causes nausea and vomiting in pregnancy?


Nausea is actually a good sign that your pregnancy hormone levels are high enough to allow your baby to develop and grow. But if you don't feel sick, don't worry, as you may just be one of the lucky ones. As many as eight out of 10 women feel nausea in pregnancy, with or without vomiting.

Now that you're pregnant, your body is producing the hormone human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) in large quantities. Once your placenta takes over maintaining and nourishing your baby, hCG levels drop and your nausea should ease. Your sickness is likely to subside once you are between 12 weeks and 14 weeks.

But other hormones may also play a part in causing your sickness, including oestrogen and thyroxine. This is probably why some women's symptoms last well beyond their first trimester.

If you're tired, hungry, stressed or anxious, your nausea may be worse.


What self-help tips can I try to ease nausea?

Must Try

Ginger

Ginger is often claimed to be effective against pregnancy sickness. However ginger may make your symptoms worse or cause you to have heartburn.

Ginger is a common remedy in Chinese medicine. It's based on the system of yin and yang and other opposing factors, including heat and cold. Ginger is a hot (yang) remedy and will make your sickness worse if you are already too hot. Ginger will suit you if you:
  • wrap yourself up in layers of clothing and blankets
  • feel miserable, introspective and disinterested in your surroundings
  • feel and look cold
  • need hot drinks
