Nausea and Vomiting In Pregnancy - Hyperemisis

I've always wondered why some women (like me) get terribly sick with pregnancy and other women sail through feeling great the whole time.

See also: for more on pregnancy over 40 and strange symptoms of pregnancy 
  I've heard all of this nausea could be anything from a reaction to your hormones to a pre-existing intestinal bacteria.   Here is an article that explains some possible causes of nausea and vomiting in

From the article:

"While the exact cause of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy is not understood, there may be a link between relaxation of the muscle fibers within the walls of the stomach muscle. Other researchers have noticed changes in bacteria counts in women who have morning sickness. They have found higher than normal levels of a bacteria called helicobacter pylori, which also seems to cause ulcers. Research is ongoing to see if certain antibiotics will treat hyperemesis. Others have found a link to the chemical serotonin, and to elevated levels of the pregnancy hormone HCG. For example, patients with twins or triplets have higher levels of HCG, and are more likely to have vomiting during pregnancy. There is also a higher chance of having severe nausea and vomiting, called "hyperemesis gravidarum," in patients with uncontrolled thyroid problems (hyperthyroidism). "

Heat and EMF's in Pregnancy

When I was pregnant, I still had my old waterbed which I would plug in during the day and unplug at night. But now that the cold weather is here and waterbeds may be a thing of the past, many women like to use electric blankets. This article discusses when and if these may pose a problem in pregnancy:
See Also: for more on having a healthy pregnancy and preventing miscarriage
The research findings were not completely consistent; it was generally found however that women
who used electric blankets on very high settings for short amounts of time. (IE quickly turning the blanket on high to warm up) were at a slightly increased risk of miss carriage particularly during the first seven weeks of pregnancy.

The research also found that women who used electric blankets during the last month of there pregnancy were at slightly increased risk of giving birth to an under weight child.

However, women who used electric blankets on low settings for extended periods of time (IE keeping the blanket at a constant temperature over night) were not exposed to particularly high magnetic fields as the blanket uses less electricity to regulate the temperature in this way. The research actually found that women who did this were at a slightly decreased risk of miscarriage.

Morning Sickness, Causes and Toxins

I don't know if morning sickness runs in my family.  I was terribly nauseated the entire first trimester when I was pregnant with my daughter.  I had to sit in a recliner all day since laying down made it worse.
 My mother doesn't really remember, and I never had the opportunity to ask my grandmothers (and both have passed away). However, there may be an "evolutionary" reason we experience morning sickness. The following article explains more:


Blame that Morning Sickness on Your Ancient Ancestors, Karen Barrow

From the article:

To further look at this phenomenon, Roberts then compared only those women from Europe and North America and pinpointed the types of foods that seem to trigger the symptoms of morning sickness: sugars, alcohol and meat. Additionally, women who ate high amounts of cereal-based products tended to have lower-than-average rates of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
Sacral Chakra Fertility Bracelet

The researchers theorize that women's bodies have slowly developed an aversion to sugar, alcohol and meat because all of these foods contain high levels of toxins that could be potentially dangerous to a mother and her child. Cereals, on the other hand, tend to contain a very low level of toxins, so they could possibly be safer for a woman to eat. Remember, however, that these toxins may not pose the same hazard now that they did in the days of ancient man.

Pregnancy Over 40, Mothers Make Sure Babies and Kids Get Sleep

This is one of the best articles I've seen about kids and sleep. It talks about actual research which shows how detrimental lack of sleep can be on a developing brain.
 Read more:

The surprise is how much sleep affects academic performance and emotional stability, as well as phenomena that we assumed to be entirely unrelated, such as the international obesity epidemic and the rise of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

See Also: Pregnancy Over 40 ( 

A few scientists theorize that sleep problems during formative years can cause permanent changes in a child’s brain structure: damage that one can’t sleep off like a hangover. It’s even possible that many of the hallmark characteristics of being a tweener and teen—moodiness, depression, and even binge eating—are actually symptoms of chronic sleep deprivation.

Older Women Make Better Mothers and They Are Healthier

Sometimes women who want to get pregnant over the age of 40 or women who have babies over 40 are criticized.
 People may say "You won't be around to see your children grow up" or "That's selfish".  But the fact is, older women are probably better mothers, more financially secure, and healthier!  Part of the reason may be that women over 40 have fewer children which is easier financially.  Women who were not in good health later in life may have had children very young and closer togethre.   Read more:


"LONDON (Reuters) - Not having children, having too many, or too young or not spaced far enough
Sacral Chakra Bracelet for Pregnancy and Fertility
apart could be detrimental to a woman's health later in life, researchers said on Tuesday.

And although women have a harder time conceiving after 40, those who do seem to have fewer medical problems as they age.
"We have shown that partnership and parenting histories are important influences on later life health and, in many cases, are as influential as the effects of a person's socio-economic status," said Professor Emily Grundy of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
In research funded by Britain's Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Grundy and her team used three separate sets of data from Britain and the United States on women born in 1911 and later to assess the impact of having children on their risk of death and poor health.
"We got consistent results using these three data sets," Grundy said in an interview.
Poorer health in later life was associated with teenage births, big families of five or more children and closely spaced pregnancies of less than 18 months apart.
But older mothers experienced better health in their later years, according to the research."

 If you've ever been pregnant or if you are currently pregnant, you've probably heard of the Apgar score which is an assessment of the baby's condition and birth and shortly thereafter.  This article explains what it is and how it is calculated.  Read more:

The Apgar score, the very first test given to a newborn, occurs in the delivery or birthing room right
Fertility/Pregnancy Jewelry click here
after the baby's birth. The test was designed to quickly evaluate a newborn's physical condition and to see if there's an immediate need for extra medical or emergency care.

Although the Apgar score was developed in 1952 by an anesthesiologist named Virginia Apgar, you also might hear it referred to as an acronym for: Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, and Respiration.
The Apgar test is usually given to a baby twice: once at 1 minute after birth, and again at 5 minutes after birth. Sometimes, if there are concerns about the baby's condition or the score at 5 minutes is low, the test may be scored for a third time at 10 minutes after birth.
Five factors are used to evaluate the baby's condition and each factor is scored on a scale of 0 to 2, with 2 being the best score:
  1. Appearance (skin color)
  2. Pulse (heart rate)
  3. Grimace response (reflexes)
  4. Activity (muscle tone)
  5. Respiration (breathing rate and effort)
Doctors, midwives, or nurses combine these five factors for the Apgar score, which will be between 10 and 0 — 10 is the highest score possible, but it's rarely obtained.

Apgar Scoring

Apgar Sign 2 1 0

(skin color)
Normal color all over (hands and feet are pink) Normal color (but hands and feet are bluish) Bluish-gray or pale all over

(heart rate)
Normal (above 100 beats per minute) Below 100 beats per minute Absent
(no pulse)

("reflex irritability")
Pulls away, sneezes, coughs, or cries with stimulation Facial movement only (grimace) with stimulation Absent (no response to stimulation)

(muscle tone)
Active, spontaneous movement Arms and legs flexed with little movement No movement, "floppy" tone

(breathing rate and effort)

Normal rate and effort, good cry Slow or irregular breathing, weak cry Absent (no breathing)

 Pregnancy Over 40 Helped With Iron and Folic Acid

If your doctor recommends prenatal vitamins, rest assured, there's a good reason.
This article talks about the importance of folic acid and iron:

Iron is essential for the development of the central nervous system," said Parul Christian, an expert in international health at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, whose study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Iron deficiency is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world, affecting 2 billion people, according to the World Health Organization.

Early iron deficiency can interfere with nerve development, biochemistry and metabolism, hampering both intellectual and fine motor development.


Christian's team studied 676 school-age children whose mothers had been in a clinical trial in which some got iron and folic acid supplements and other nutrients while they were pregnant. About 80

percent of the children -- aged 7 to 9 -- were enrolled in school.

"We had the opportunity to follow the offspring of women who had participated in a randomized trial of iron and folic acid and other micronutrients to assess neurocognitive function and outcomes," Christian said in a telephone interview.

"What we showed is prenatal iron and folic acid supplementation had a significant impact on the offspring's intellectual level and motor ability and ability during school age, which was a very exciting finding," she said.

Chicken pox is always something we think about as a "childhood disease", however older people can get chicken pox too.  Even younger people can get it if they are not vaccinated or if they don't receive the proper dose. 
In any event, if men get chicken pox, can it harm their sperm count or their ability to father a child?
Well, it may or may not.  In some cases, chicken pox can lead to orchitis which is an inflammation of

the testicles which can ultimately harm the size of their testicles and their sperm production.

Pregnancy and Physical Activity

Guest Post By Dr. Anuradha K

Regular physical activity is important for many women during pregnancy to have a healthy living lifestyle. You can reap huge benefits during delivery if you undertake regular exercises. In most cases, moderate exercise is safe and beneficial for both mother and the baby. In general, at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day is recommended. You should aim to do a mixture of both aerobic physical activity and muscle-strengthening physical activity. If you are not used to regular exercise, you can start with gentle physical activities and then gradually increase the duration and intensity of the exercises.
What type of exercises should I do whilst pregnant?
Pregnant women should try to do a mixture of both aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercises.
• Aerobic activity is any activity that makes your heart and lungs work harder such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming or dancing. Aerobic activity is something which makes you mildly out of breath
and sweaty.
• Muscle strengthening activity includes weight training, climbing stairs, lifting or carrying shopping, yoga or similar resistance exercises that strengthen major muscle groups.
What kinds of physical activities are recommended during pregnancy?
Being pregnant does not mean that you should restrain yourself from doing any kind of physical activities. However, you do need to be sensible about what type of physical activity you do.
In general, any physical activity which will improve or maintain your physical fitness as well as your health is recommended. It includes:
• Everyday activities. Such as walking, regular domestic chores, gardening etc
• Active recreational activities. Such as dancing, swimming etc
• Gentle Sports: Such as playing tennis/ badminton and regular exercise sessions at the gym etc
Pelvic floor exercises are also important during pregnancy and are advised for all pregnant women. These help in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles which comes under strain when you are pregnant and at the time of labour.


What are the benefits of physical activities during pregnancy?
Regular Physical activity can help you to:
• Improve stamina and increased lung capacity
• Have less fatigue & better sleep
• Maintain healthy weight during and after delivery
• Less chances of developing back ache which occurs frequently in pregnancy
• Avoid constipation
• Less risk of developing swelling of feet, ankles or hands
• Avoid anxiety & depression
• Have a reduced risk of developing diabetes during your pregnancy (gestational diabetes). In women who do develop diabetes during their pregnancy, regular physical activity may help to improve the control of their diabetes.
• Perhaps, have a shorter labour and be less likely to have problems or complications during the delivery of your baby.
What precautions are to be taken while doing exercises in pregnancy?
Special care should be taken while choosing exercise routine as there are many physical changes during pregnancy which can lead to injury if not taken care of. This includes increased blood volume and hormonal changes that can affect the muscles and ligaments, change is mobility of joints and ease of breathing during pregnancy.
• Exercising while lying on your back after 16 weeks of pregnancy can make you feel light-headed and you may faint as vena cava, one of the main blood vessels of your body gets compressed by the developing baby.
• Experts also recommend that you should be careful if you are undertaking activities where you may be more likely to lose your balance and fall, injuring your abdomen, and possibly injuring your developing baby. You are advised to avoid activities such as horse riding, downhill skiing, ice hockey, gymnastics and cycling whilst being pregnant.
• Contact sports such as squash, judo, boxing, kickboxing etc must be avoided as you have a chance of being hit in your abdomen.
If you are joining exercise class that is not designed for pregnant women, do let your trainer know that you are pregnant. Also, you should always remember to warm up and cool down at the beginning and at the end of each session.
How much physical activity should I do whilst pregnant?
If you are used to doing regular exercises before you were pregnant, you can try to keep up with your usual level of physical activity for as long as you can and feel comfortable while doing it. However, it is normal that as your pregnancy goes along, you may have to take it easy and have to slow down the intensity of your physical activity. You may not be able to exercise to the same level as before. A good goal to aim for is at least 30 minutes of aerobic physical activity per day whilst you are pregnant. Keep your exercise sessions to no longer than 45 minutes.
If you are not used to doing regular physical activities before pregnancy, you should not just suddenly start an intensive exercise programme. Start with 15 minutes of physical activity three times a week and then increase this gradually to 30-minute sessions four times a week and finally to 30 minutes every day. Listen to your body and act accordingly
You should aim to become warm, mildly out of breath, and mildly sweaty during your exercise sessions. You should be able to complete a sentence comfortably and hold a conversation whilst you are doing physical activity. If you can do this, you are probably exercising at the right level or intensity. If you become too breathless to talk whilst you are doing physical activity, it probably means that you are doing too much and you have to slow down.
When is it not safe to exercise?
Physical activity during pregnancy is safe for most women. Doctor's advice should be taken as they will be able to guide the expecting mothers better depending upon their medical history. You must seek medical advice before starting physical activity if you have;
• Known heart & lung problems
• Vaginal bleeding that continues throughout the pregnancy
• High blood pressure during pregnancy
History of pre mature labour in the past
• Any signs of preterm labour during this pregnancy
• Premature rupture of the membranes
• Known weakness of their cervix (cervical incompetence), including women who have had a stitch in their cervix
• Low lying placenta for more than 20 weeks
• Signs that their baby may be small-for-dates (Intra uterine growth retardation) on ultrasound scanning during this pregnancy
• A twin or multiple pregnancy (triplets, quadruplets, etc)
• Poorly controlled epilepsy
• Poorly controlled thyroid disease during pregnancy.
• Severe anaemia during pregnancy.
• Bone or joint problems that may affect your ability to exercise.
• Poorly controlled diabetes during pregnancy
Is there any reason why I should stop exercising during pregnancy?
As mentioned above, there are many benefits of doing regular physical activity whilst you are pregnant. However, there are a few things that you should be careful about. You should stop exercising and seek urgent medical attention if you develop:
• Excessive shortness of breath
• Chest pain or palpitations
• Dizziness
• Painful contractions, signs of labour or any leakage of amniotic fluid (waters breaking)
• Heavy vaginal bleeding
• Excessive tiredness
• Severe abdominal pain
• If the movements of the baby have become less than normal
• Calf pain or swelling with redness
When can I start exercises after delivery?
It is generally advised that you can start walking, doing pelvic floor exercises and stretching immediately after birth provided that you have had a normal vaginal delivery with no complications. You should gradually increase your physical activity to build up to your pre-pregnancy levels. If you have had a Caesarean section, you should ask your doctor when it is safe for you to start physical activity. In general, it is not usually recommended to start until after your postnatal check at 6-8 weeks. Postnatal exercise does not reduce the quantity or the quality of your breast milk or have any harmful effects on your baby.
Post natal exercises can help you to:
• Lose weight and get back in shape
• Increase your energy levels
• Improve your mood and avoid anxiety / postnatal depression
• Help to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and reduce your chance of developing stress incontinence (leakage of urine during strain/coughing),

Pregnancy Over 40 and Yeast Infections

I had one quick bout of a yeast infection during my successful pregnancy.
Actually, contrary to most articles I've read (which make it sound like if you have a yeast infection, you'll have symptoms), I had no idea. There are so many things that go on with your body when you're pregnant, you may miss it. My doctor identified mine during a routine prenatal visit and told me how to treat it. Yeast infections can be very common in pregnancy because you have higher hormone levels which may promote the growth of yeast. Here is an article that explains more:


From the article:

Yeast infections are a common type of vaginal infection that are particularly common in pregnant women. These infections — also called monilial vaginitis or vaginal candidiasis — are caused by microscopic fungi in the Candida family, most commonly Candida albicans.

It's not uncommon to have a certain amount of yeast in your vagina, as well as in your intestinal tract. Yeast only becomes a problem when it grows so fast that it overwhelms other competing microorganisms.
Your higher level of estrogen during pregnancy causes your vagina to produce more glycogen, making it even easier for yeast to grow there. Some researchers think estrogen may also have a direct effect on yeast, causing it to grow faster and stick more easily to the walls of the vagina.

Pregnancy Over 40, Vaginal Exams

I was always worried about having any kind of exam when I was pregnant, especially vaginal exams.
 I didn't want anything coming close to my baby - even a doctor with gloves on. My doctor would usually do an exam to check my cervix, and it actually was somewhat painful. Of course, I worried that it would throw me into labor! Well... it didn't (as it turned out I was induced). Here is an article about what information vaginal exams can give you and your doctor late in pregnancy:


From the article:
Fertility/Pregnancy Necklaces
Vaginal exams measure several things:

Dilation & thinning of the cervix
Position of the baby
Station of the baby
Position of the cervix

Vaginal exams do not measure:

When the baby is coming
Whether the baby will fit (in most cases)
All the progress being made in labor
