Re: Morning Sickness connected to Miscarriages?
I know plenty of women who didn't have any morning sickness. With my DD I had ALOT and ended up taking Dicletin (morning sickness pill) but with DS I had very little MS. But for both I didn't start getting queasy until around 7-8 weeks after conception so it can still come...the HCG hormones increase as each day passes and the higher it gets the more queasy you can get. It peaks at around 10-12 weeks then the levels gradually come down a bit and level out which is why the morning sickness generally is the first trimester...but everyone is different...some people may not get sick at all, some may be sick their entire pregnancies. If you do start getting queasy, be sure to eat smaller meals but alot more of them...if you eat overeat you can irritate your tummy. But I found I got sick more often when my tummy was empty, so I packed a bag full of small snacks(fruit cups, fruit, crackers, granola bars, cup o'soup etc) that I could snack on throughout the day to ALWAYS keep something in my tummy and it helped alot. Someone also said that sucking on sour candies is supposed to help.
