SICK OF IT
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!
