Morning sickness and Hyperemesis Gravidarum (its much more severe cousin) is awful. I know, I’ve been there. At my worst, I threw up 16 times in one day and ended up on a drip in the hospital.
For two pregnancies, I tried everything from the basics (dry toast and ginger) to the more extreme (licking a lemon). I tried my best to avoid Maxalon and Zofran although sometimes I caved. In the end, it reached the point where I simply waited by the toilet bowl for it to be over. Luckily for me, that usually happens somewhere between 14 and 20 weeks.
Before trying for another baby I decided there had to be another way. It made no sense. If morning sickness was so important for healthy babies, why didn’t everyone get it? Was it really logical that our body would make us sick to make our babies healthy?
I began digging. I didn’t want something that relieved the symptoms, I wanted to know more about fixing the cause. And that’s how I found out the one simple thing that could help.
