For a pregnant woman nothing else matters except the tiny little life that is growing in her womb. Along with these warm feelings the pregnancy is most times accompanied by several health problems. The most sickening of all is the Morning Sickness. The nauseous feeling and vomiting in the morning is experienced by fifty to eighty percent of pregnant women. The nauseous feeling usually occurs during the early morning; however, some women experience it throughout the day. Some pregnant women also develop an aversion to specific smells or foods and makes them nauseous.
