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:
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.
