  • Morning sickness, which really happens anytime of the day, happens because...During your first trimester, the volume of blood in your body doubles in order to create the baby, as a result of this, your body needs extra sugar, iron and protein, when your body has low blood sugar levels or low iron levels, even when you are not prego, it causes nausea.
    Eat jellybeans to curb nausea, sounds weird, but its an easily dissolved sugar to get into the blood stream fast, when you can get past the nausea to eat, make sure you eat foods high in iron and protien, lean red meat, whole grain pasta, spinach, strawberries, peanutbutter... Just limit your portions in case the nausea comes back, less mess to clean up...Ewwwh!!!

  • LOL no morning sickness is your body reacting to the Hormones from pregnancy, My doctor told me the higher your hormones the less chance or a miscarriage

  • not at all your body is reacting to being pregnant. It's a good idea to eat better and take vitamins, but that's not necessarily going to make the sickness stop.
