Natural Remedies To Soothe Morning Sickness
(KUTV) Morning sickness is a common complaint for pregnant women. That is something Janica Dworshak knows very well. Janica is pregnant with her second child. She is 12 weeks along and says the pregnancy hasn’t been easy. “You wake up and decide whether you should eat or throw up. And then you try to eat and usually you throw up.”
   
Gretchen Fauchett is a Certified Nurse Midwife overseeing Janica’s pregnancy. She says morning sickness is common during the first trimester. There are a number of reasons, Gretchen says, why women get so sick. “The things they think of are they think the increased hormone secretion during pregnancy. Also the mother seems to develop hypersensitivity to smells and also to movements and things like that. And there is also some increased salvation during pregnancy as well.”
   
There are a number of things women can do to ease the symptoms of morning sickness. You can purchase ginger lollipops. Gretchen says some women have found success with products such as B6 and antihistamines.
   
In more severe cases, doctors can also prescribe medications. Janica is now taking medications for her morning sickness. Now, she is just taking things day-by-day. “I ended up posting an ultrasound picture behind the toilet so I knew every time I was throwing up I was doing it for a reason.”
   
If you are pregnant and you are experiencing morning sickness, you should talk to your doctor. Before you try any medications, be sure to ask your doctor if they are safe to take during your pregnancy. You can also contact the Utah Pregnancy Risk line by calling: (800) 822-2229.
   
It is also important to see your doctor regularly during the first 13 weeks of your pregnancy. For more information, visit: www.babyyourbaby.org.
