Kate Middleton is pregnant with her third child. She has been forced to cancel engagements because she has suffered from severe morning sickness. She has had this problem with her previous pregnancy. There is an old wives’ tale that says if you have morning sickness, then you are likely to have a healthy pregnancy. A new study has confirmed that there is truth to this old wives’ tale.
An important hormone called endokinin is produced during pregnancy. This hormone can also cause morning sickness. Endokinin is a hormone that is found throughout the body. It can also affect blood flow to the organs. Successful blood flow is essential for implantation. Endokinin also keeps blood flowing to the placenta.
This new study also shows one of the reasons that smoking is detrimental to pregnant women. Smoking can lower endokinin levels in the body. Professor Phillip Lowry is one of the people who was involved in the study. He stated that smoking can lead to impaired endokinin activity.
He also stated that many people are tempted to take endokinin-blocking drugs in order to reduce morning sickness. However, he strongly advises against this. These drugs can cause pregnancy complications. He also recommends that women who want to become pregnant avoid smoking.
Kate Middleton suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, which is a severe form of morning sickness. It causes weight loss, dehydration and feeling faint. Some women have to be hospitalized due to the severity of their illness. It typically gets better after the 20th week of pregnancy. However, it may last the entire pregnancy.
Hyperemesis gravidarum is more likely to develop during the first pregnancy. Women who are carrying multiple are also at a greater risk for developing this condition. Experts do not know exactly why this condition develops. However, they do believe that low levels of HCG may cause it.
