  • Your help is needed

    About half of all pregnant women experience morning sickness. Fortunately for most women morning sickness disappears after about the third month. Until then, here are a few things you can do to help your partner cope:

  • Help her maintain a high-protein, high-carbohydrate diet.

  • Encourage her to drink a lot of water.

  • Encourage her to eat a lot of small meals throughout the day; every two or three hours, if possible.

  • Put pretzels or crackers by the bed.

  • Be aware that she needs plenty of rest and encourage her to get it.

    Keep in mind that despite the name, morning sickness can happen any time of the day. And don't be surprised if it disappears and then returns a few weeks later. For some women it can actually last the entire pregnancy.PregnancyAndBaby.com
