Morning sickness is good for you…yes…really!

christian-faith-pregnancy-joyAs a mother of two i have experienced two interesting pregnancies both of which i spat through it like an angry camel. I constantly felt bloated with my first princess and even went off most of my favorite food and fragrances however with my second i could not stand the smell of lasagna,jerk seasoning or peppers(most things i love). With my second baby i puked so much like an overfed dog until stayed away from most food just in case! I hardly put on any weight and even 2 weeks before giving birth i was asked if i am pregnant by somebody who saw me nearly every other day during the whole pregnancy. Anyway going back to the title, a research carried out at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto over a period of 20 years has concluded that women who experience morning sickness tend to give birth to healthier babies. They reported that woman who experienced morning sickness had healthier babies with lower rates of birth defects or developmental issues. The study also showed less cases of miscarriage or premature births in all 850,000 participants.

Wow this is very interesting and i think maybe morning sickness is God’s way of helping us stay away from certain foods that can cause issues in pregnancy and perhaps there maybe a hint of truth in there but with all studies i always tend to take it with a pinch of salt because other factors may have played a role for example class,genes,finances,environment,habits and so on or if the woman took anti-natal vitamins.

I for one have 2 beautiful and healthy daughters thanks to God….not morning sickness lol
