Nausea and Vomiting During the First Trimester of Pregnancy

Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is a common condition that usually settles by the end of the first trimester.

It is often called 'morning sickness' but can occur at any time in the day or night. Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a severe form of nausea and vomiting which can lead to dehydration and significant weight loss.

How will this affect you?

Your mood may get affected, even to the extent of getting depressed.

Will it affect your baby?

Structurally, it will not. But, in women with severe nausea and vomiting, it can lead to a baby with lower than expected birth weight.

What you can do to help yourself?

  • Practice small quantities and frequent food intake.
  • Try to avoid food rich in fat, deep-fried, spicy foods etc. Opt for food rich in carbs and protein instead.
