    Tip for dealing with rhe the morning sickness. Ginger beer (non-alcoholic version) made with real ginger and flat lemonade. Keep them by your bed and sip it when you wake up in the morning. Also keep a packet of dry crackers to nibble on by your bed before you get up.

    What is the cause of Morning Sickness? Is it just the change in hormone levels that a woman experiences? And from a male perspective, what is the best way to be supportive (especially if I cannot stand the sight of ANYONE throwing up!)

    Thanks for sharing!

      Actually, the real cause is unknown, but it is assumed that morning sickness occurs due to change in hormone. and it can be tackle with home remedies if not severe. The partner should be supportive in the sense can encourage her in eating healthy and smaller portions.

    My first preganacy was like a breeze and my second pregnancy was a nightmare. I saw both the shades of the spectrum. Not only two bodies, but even two pregnancies can’t be similar. This is a great post and quite informative.
