Morning Sickness is a common symptom of pregnancy although some Mums are lucky enough not to experience it at all.
It may start around 4 or 6 weeks or so and then ease off by around 14 weeks. For some pregnant Mums this may last longer, or stop and then return later in pregnancy which can most definately affect your exercise routine.
Here are some tips for coping:-
Eat little and often
Eating small meals frequently may help as feeling nausea can be worse if your stomach is empty.
Snack on bland foods such as crackers throughout the day.
You may prefer cold meals as food which is hot and spicy aswell as fatty foods may trigger nausea.
Sipping on water throughout the day is important throughout pregnancy.
Adding slices of lemon to a glass of water may also help.
Nap when you feel tired
Tiredness may be increased in the first and last trimesters. Taking a nap whenever you get a chance may help to keep nausea at bay.
Get some fresh air
During pregnancy your normal body temperature is higher than normal due to the extra blood volume circulating so if you feel uncomfortable just getting some fresh air can help ease nausea or the unsettled feeling in your stomach.
