As stated earlier the levels of difficulty or intensity vary. 75% of women experience nausea and/or vomiting during their first trimester, with only 50% only experiencing vomiting.
This condition has the ability not only to cause dizziness, uneasiness, but also causes extreme fatigue that can cause a mother to feel beyond miserable. They are many alternatives for this condition including a great option here at Sweetie Pie.
Whether you are like most mothers experiencing morning sickness within your first 4 to 6 weeks of pregnancy, or a rare case having the condition all the way throughout your third trimester it will leave you not feeling too excited for what is to come.
