Morning sickness. The term alone can stir up many an unpleasant memory and unsavory flashback of constant nausea that often culminates in vomiting -- and the irony is that morning sickness is not just confined to morning hours... it can last all day long... for months. Although morning sickness affects more than half of pregnant women, there are only hypotheses, no proven data to explain why the condition exists. It is likely attributed to the rise of the hormone hCG, which peaks in a pregnant woman's body in tandem with her feelings of nausea. The rise of estrogen, and a heightened sensitivity to odors that the hormone causes are also suspect when it comes to why pregnant women suffer morning sickness. Pregnancy is no time to be taking over the counter, (or any) drugs (especially during the critical fetal development stage of the first trimester). So, we've rounded up five natural remedies to help ease morning sickness that may help you navigate the trying first months of pregnancy.
