SICK OF IT

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - The Buzz -

Preg­nancy is dif­fer­ent for ev­ery woman, but it seems the dis­com­fort of morn­ing sick­ness is univer­sal. A new study in the US re­vealed nau­sea dur­ing the first trimester was the most dis­tress­ing part of a preg­nancy for most women – worse even than child­birth. “All of the women in the study – ex­cept two – said that the first trimester was the most phys­i­cally tax­ing part of the preg­nancy,” said David J. Hut­son, as­sis­tant pro­fes­sor of so­ci­ol­ogy at Penn State Abing­ton in the US, who car­ried out the study. “For many of them, even the pain of giv­ing birth was noth­ing in com­par­i­son to the over­whelm­ing tired­ness and nau­sea of the first trimester.” Yikes. Don’t for­get to have the gin­ger ready, ladies!
