With the increase in facilities, you can possibly look up anything in a very fast way. This is why there is an increase in awareness regarding many issues such as health-related ones. You are quite literally one click away from knowing about any problem you are facing.
However, in this information age, it is hard to detect what is true and what is not. Often, people end up believing in the same old age myth because they are available in a new way on the internet. The same myths are then also promoted by other means such as all forms of media.
For instance, pregnancy is presented in an extremely misleading way many times. What you see in movies and popular television series may actually not be close to the reality at all. Although there are many shows that are somewhat realistic, most paint a very specific image.
Pregnant women are, at times, given impossible standards. These are then applied to the real-life women who are expecting. Additionally, there are many myths about pregnancy such as how a pregnancy without ‘morning sickness’ is not normal.
Are you a soon-to-be mom who is experiencing the same issue? This article will hopefully convince you to block out all such people and their negativity out of your life. Pregnancy without vomiting is actually pretty normal!
What Causes Vomiting During Pregnancy?
In the television series, the morning sickness phase of the pregnancy is only there for comical purposes. You often see cranky women who are giving a hard time to their husbands by vomiting at the earliest hours of dawn. Moreover, many of your friends have been through that.
So, what causes this to happen anyway? Nausea with or without pregnancy is common in most pregnancy. This happens due to the sudden increase in hormones in the body such as estrogen and ECGs. Putting it precisely, it is the body’s coping mechanism to the changes in hormones.
The morning sickness or vomiting usually starts after 5 weeks and ends after the first trimester is over. Nausea or vomiting after that period can also occur due to a variety of reasons. These include food poisoning, fatty liver disease, and other health conditions.
If the vomiting is chronic and you may start feeling weak or dehydrated, it is better to consult or doctor and not taking any medicines without asking.
What Does Pregnancy Without Vomiting Mean?
Since vomiting occurs in most of the cases, does a lack of it indicate a health issue? Sometimes, no morning sickness can point towards low levels of hormones in the body. This can indeed raise the risk for a miscarriage. However, imbalances are almost always detected on time by the doctors and miscarriages or any issues are rare.
Most of the times, lack of vomiting actually means your body can cope better with the hormonal fluctuations. So, it does not mean your pregnancy is abnormal. Instead, it shows that your body’s coping skills are different.
Remember, it is normal to have vomiting as well as not have it. Every pregnancy is different. In fact, your second pregnancy can also be not similar to your first. It never means that you are not normal or the baby is going to get hurt. Remember to keep visiting your doctor regularly and not do anything without proper consultation!
