Morning sickness is often the most obvious symptom (or side effect) of pregnancy. But it’s also very misleading. 24/7 sickness would be more accurate.
Of course I am delighted to be pregnant and willing to take on any of the unpleasant side effects if it results in a healthy baby (so please no comments about how I should just be grateful – I know I’m incredibly lucky!), but it can be a struggle to stay positive when you have spent weeks carrying around a sick bucket like a handbag.
