Bears on Babies, Installmoo 2: Morning Sickness

Jenn has been having morning sickness.

*many Bears hugs for Jenn*

The Bears think morning sickness is stoopid, and someone should put an end to it right awoo.

To help everyone understand morning sickness better, the Bears have researched primary sources to compile the best info available. According to Wikipoodioo:
There is insufficient evidence to pin down a single (or multiple) cause, but the leading theories for proximate causes include:

- An increase in the circulating level of the hormone estrogen. Estrogen levels may increase by up to a hundredfold during pregnancy.

- Low blood sugar during pregnancy.

- An increase in progesterone relaxes the muscles in the uterus, which prevents early childbirth, but may also relax the stomach and intestines, leading to excess stomach acids.

- An increase in human chorionic gonadotropin.

- An increase in sensitivity to odors, which overstimulates normal nausea triggers.

Daphne Rose blames morning sickness on the patriarchy, which forces women to conform to the phallogenic rhythms of artificial work and household schedules, rather than live in harmony with the natural rhythms of their pregnancy.

Sigmoond Freud says morning sickness is the result of the mother's loathing of her husband. The subconscious manifestation of this is a desire to abort the fetus through vomiting.

*much laughing of Bears*

That Sigmoond Freud says the funniest things. After he died, the world didn't see another stand-up comic of Freud's genius until Shecky Greene came along.

OK Bye
Stompy and all the Bears

Poor Jenn :( [hug].

Know what I discovered helps when feeling/being sick? Someone rubbing a circle between my shoulders. Well I was the one being sick, a a WD party, and it was Andy (Tenchi_Muyo) who rubbed my back, dunno if he knew that helped people being sick, but it worked.

Bears, I am surprised that you didn't see an obvious solution to low blood sugar causing morning sickness. Jim obviously needs to use his 'merican 'spress card to buy Jenn caaaandy!
