Morning Sickness Reduce The Risks of Miscarriage



Pregnancy is a very happy and special moment for married couples, but often the symptoms of morning sickness can be very discomforting for pregnant women.


Morning sickness of course mostly happens in the morning, but in fact despite of the name if the term the condition can actually happen at any time of the day even at night.

But despite making pregnant woman feel quit uncomfortable, it turns out that morning is actually good for the baby.

According to a study reported in Todaysparent, pregnant women who experience morning sickness in the early stages of pregnancy only have half the chance of experiencing miscarriage. Furthermore, the risks of miscarriage will be lower in women who experience morning sickness added with vomiting.

The study, led by researchers from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in the United States involved nearly 800 women who had at least had a miscarriage and then became pregnant again. Questions raised about the record of the symptoms experienced during the first eight weeks of pregnancy and monthly questionnaires at the end of the first half.

As a result, there were 188 cases of miscarriage which affect nearly one in four pregnancies and more than 90 percent occur in the first trimester. In the 800 women who participated in the study, 443 had complete records and only half of those experienced nausea in the first eight weeks of pregnancy.

Researchers then associated nausea cases only and nausea accompanied by vomiting, were associated with a 50 to 70 percent reduction in the risk of miscarriage. Previous studies have also discovered that morning sickness is associated with a low number of miscarriage.

The case of morning sickness itself is associated with high levels of hormones that occurs early in pregnancy. However, how these hormones associated with morning sickness affect the process of reduction in the case of miscarriage, is still not known with certainty.
