Celebs that Suffer Morning Sickness and Tips to Minimize It

As Daniel Tosh joked about, “Sometimes, when I’m feeling down because nothing seems to be going right, I like to take a home pregnancy test. Then I can say, “Hey, at least I’m not pregnant.” Going through pregnancy is hard enough. Some pregnant women suffers harder when they have to get through a rough start.

According to the US data from public health authorities, morning sickness affects over 50% of all pregnant mothers. Including celebrities (Cause they are people too) here are some celebrities that suffered rough nauseous pregnancies.

Tori Spelling

When pregnant with her third baby, she had a long bout with the nauseous morning sickness. “I have actually been much sicker in this pregnancy than the other two,” she told Us Weekly. “I’ve been nauseous for 3 months straight.” Yes, 3 months is a long, long time!

Morning sickness is scientifically known as nausea gravidarum, or simply nausea. It’s generally related to the  low blood sugar counts, an increase in estrogen levels, and a great susceptibility to some smells. Oftentimes, morning sickness will be present in the wee hours of the morning (thus the name) and will ease up as the day goes on.

Even though morning sickness can be exceedingly unpleasant, it’s hardly ever severe enough to cause metabolic disturbance. In most cases, morning sickness settles down by the end of the first 3 months.

Tips to minimize morning sickness:

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Get up slowly from bed
  • Avoid caffeine and other fatty or spicy foods.
  • Food portion sizes –have small ones.
  • Increased fluid intake.
