Morning sickness in the early days of pregnancy is normal and you need not to worry about it. According to a study, these symptoms indicate that the condition of the fetus is healthy and relatively safer from the risk of miscarriage.
Dr. Ronna L. Chan, a researcher from the University of North Carolina concludes that after observing 2,400 pregnant women in America. The observation was published in the Human Reproduction journal.
The research found 89 per cent are known to experience various symptoms of morning sickness during the first trimester of pregnancy with the most common symptoms are nausea and vomiting.
But the nausea and vomiting group have the least risk of experiencing miscarriage which is 3.2 times smaller than the group who did not experience morning sickness.
Dr. Ronna said there are no theories that explains this trend. But the increased sensitivity when experiencing morning sickness is expected to be the result of changes in certain hormones to maintain pregnancy in order for it to stay strong.
Although the causal relationship between morning sicknes with miscarriage risk can not be ascertained but Dr Ronna hopes the results of this study do not make mothers who do not feel the nausea-vomiting during pregnancy panics.
“Not all women who successfully give birth have to experience nausea and vomiting, because symptoms of morning sickness vary widely. Even in women the same form and severity can vary in future pregnancies,” said Dr. Ronna.
