Morning sickness is one of the most unpleasant side effects of pregnancy. Pregnant ladies experiences it for varying amounts of time and at different levels of intensity, and some are lucky enough to avoid it altogether. When I found out I was expecting, I was anticipating some morning sickness but was hoping that it would be light. Sadly, that didn’t happen.
From week six until about week 18, I had all-day morning sickness. The mornings and nights were the worst, and I often found myself canceling evening plans because I didn’t feel up to leaving the house. After I reached my second trimester, it slowly started to improve, and when I say slowly, I mean S-L-O-W-L-Y. At this point, I usually only feel sick in the mornings and evenings, and it isn’t as bad as it was, so I’m grateful. Every once in a while, I’ll have an especially bad day, but they aren’t as common as they were.
