Common Discomforts In Pregnancy

Nausea and vomiting:
Nausea and vomiting can be a normal part of pregnancy. 70-85% of pregnant women will experience nausea and/or vomiting during their 1st trimester. This usually starts around 6 weeks and is usually relieved by 14-15 weeks. For some, this will return later in pregnancy.

Interventions to help relieve nausea and vomiting:

Rarely, some women will develop a more severe form of nausea called hyperemesis gravidarum. If you are unable to keep food or drink down for more than 24 hours or feel dehydrated, call the office.

Fatigue is a common discomfort in pregnancy, especially in the first trimester. Your energy will likely return to normal at about 14-15 weeks, but may return late in the 3rd trimester.
