Pregnancy comes with a lot of changes in your life and body. One of the most common complains is about nausea during pregnancy, known as morning sickness.
Many pregnant women experience nausea during first stages of pregnancy, but it can last until the third trimester. The reason of the morning sickness is linked to the production of HCG hormone ( human chorionic gonadotropin) and to the raise of estrogen during pregnancy.
Also, my doctor told that nausea is the result of the battle of the body with a foreign “object” (the baby) in it. And until the pregnancy is stable, the body is trying to eliminate what doesn’t recognize of being part of it.
Morning sickness is a terrible period of pregnancy, but it will pass and don’t even remember it. Nausea can appear due to a smell you don’t like, due to heat or even when you cook your favorite food.
