Other Types of Morning Sickness: Guest blog by Mommy MD Guides member, Dr. Jennifer Gilbert, DO

Friday 01 August 2014

[Guest blog by Mommy MD Guides member, Dr. Jennifer Gilbert, DO] Did you know that there are two other types of morning sickness? If you experience these symptoms, talk with your doctor for advice on managing these unpleasant symptoms. • Ptyalism: This is a condition that causes an excessive flow of saliva in the mouth. It’s very unpleasant, and it can cause problems swallowing and make you cough or gag. Generally women get it around the same time as morning sickness, weeks 6 to 12. It might help to suck on a piece of hard candy. • Hyper olfactory sensation: This condition causes moms-to-be to be super sensitive to smells. Usually moms-to-be have it around the same time as morning sickness. It might help to put a strong smelling cream under your nose, such as a mild-smelling lotion.
