Feeling queasy as a result of your pregnancy? Try these top tips shared by other moms!

Finding out you are pregnant and going to be a mother is one of the best experiences in life.

However, the morning sickness that usually accompanies pregnancy, not so great.

According to Dr Hong Sze Ching, Associate Consultant at the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) in Singapore, nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, commonly referred to as morning sickness is very common in pregnancy, with as many as 7 in 10 women experiencing morning sickness in pregnancy.

Fortunately for most, morning sickness usually ends before the end of the 1st trimester.

While morning sickness cannot be entirely prevented, there are ways to reduce the symptoms, and hence make the 1st 3 months more enjoyable.

 

1. Prop Yourself Up When Sleeping Or Resting
