The most common sickness a woman may face during pregnancy is morning sickness better known as nausea. This is often perceived as an urge to vomit and it happens in the first three months of pregnancy.
2. Fatigue

In the first trimester, blood volume and other fluids increases as the body adjusts to pregnancy and this will likely make the pregnant woman feel some tiredness because the body will also work overtime to provide a nourishing environment for the foetus.
3. Indigestion

This is caused by pressure on the intestines and stomach; one way to prevent this is taking smaller meals throughout the day. It is also advisable to avoid lying down shortly after taking a meal.
