When Does Morning Sickness Start

While morning sickness is one of the first signs of being pregnant, it might not sneak up on you until you're already 4-6 weeks pregnant. This is the most common time period that you would feel the symptoms of being pregnant and morning sickness. In addition, there are other pregnancy signs that are usually accompanied by morning sickness like:

* Constipation

* Increased urination

* Backaches or body aches

* Exhaustion

* Increased appetite

* Heightened sense of taste and smell

When Does Morning Sickness Start

Like the title of its name, morning sickness mostly occurs in the morning. Many times, you won't even know that you're pregnant until the morning sickness hits. In the majority of cases, morning sickness will start around the 4th to 6th week of the pregnancy and will last up to the 14th to 16th week. Unfortunately for pregnant women, the process of having to go through morning sickness is not as black and white as that, there are many grey areas. For example, some women report that they instantly feel the effects of morning sickness within 1 to 2 weeks of becoming pregnant. In other, more uncommon cases, some women never even feel the symptoms of having morning sickness.

It is important to know that, while uncommon, not feeling the effects of morning sickness can be extremely dangerous, potentially leading to a miscarriage. If you never experience morning sickness there are some important facts to remember:

* Often times, not having morning sickness can be a sign of miscarrying

* Many women that don't experience morning sickness symptoms will frequently carry their pregnancy full term

* Sometimes, you don't get morning sickness, but instead receive night sickness. Basically, the same as morning sickness, this version attacks during the night time.

What Does Morning Sickness Feel Like?

There are a few famous, or infamous, symptoms that you typically hear people talking about. The obvious and most common symptom of morning sickness is the pregnant body's development of nausea. The most unfortunate part about becoming nauseas is that the attacks will come both in the morning, and all throughout the day. Some unlucky women even find their morning sickness carrying on into the late night time.

When Does Morning Sickness Start

An inevitable part of becoming pregnant is the frequent and uncomfortable feeling that morning sickness brings. Amazingly, 50%-80% of all pregnant women suffer from morning sickness at some point in time during their pregnancy. While morning sickness usually starts during the first trimester, it can, unfortunately, be constant through the entire 9 month pregnancy cycle. A tell tale sign to being pregnant, morning sickness, does not only occur during the day. Although common sense tells you that morning sickness is present in the morning, the sickness can actually strike at any point during the nigh.

A mother of two, Jennifer Dansicker, was recently interviewed on webmd by Dr. Cynthia Dennison Hayes in regards to her bout against morning sickness. Dansicker is quoted as saying, "It's really 'all day' sickness. Six weeks of constant, undeniable, miserable nausea and vomiting. I was a mess”. Going hand in hand with being nauseas, vomiting, is another miserable symptom that comes with having morning sickness. Even though being nauseas is sometimes unbearable, it would be more tolerable if it didn't come with losing your food. If you're pregnant, than you need to frequently eat more in order to maintain your body's nutrient levels, seeming impossible if you are vomiting all the time.

Remedies to Morning Sickness

Pregnant women, you don't have to worry though. After consulting your Doctor, there are a variety of things that are said to help reduce or cure the symptoms of morning sickness. Please remember though, each pregnant body's reaction to certain things is different than others so not all remedies might work for your pregnancy. One of the most common cures for morning sickness is to eat crackers or bread. Both foods are high in carbohydrates and relatively bland in taste, which is said to help reduce the onset of nausea. Some people believe that eating small meals throughout the day is also a helpful tool to prevent the onset of nausea attacks. This is because, many times, the uncomfortable feeling of being too full can cause nausea to set in. Other known remedies for curing morning sickness include:

* Some Doctors might recommend using Vitamin B-6 as it's known to reduce the feeling of nausea in pregnant women.

* It is believed that too much iron can create nausea attacks

* Any time of ginger intake could reduce or completely cure your morning sickness nausea

* Sleeping! Takes frequent naps throughout the day and get plenty of rest at night. Your body is living for two now, not enough rest could cause you to become nauseas.

* Avoid eating oil based food or foods with a lot of grease
