I didn’t know the difference between HG and morning sickness. I assumed it was normal. I assumed I was eating the wrong foods. I assumed it would pass. I didn’t know the difference.
Morning sickness is something that affects at least half of all pregnant women, with 80% experiencing nausea in the first 12 weeks.
HG? That claims around 1% of pregnant women.
Morning sickness usually eases around 16-18 weeks, after which women are able to hopefully go on to enjoy their pregnancy. For some, nausea and sickness can continue a little longer, but it doesn’t usually affect their ability to work, eat or care for themselves….
