You were so excited to get pregnant – that is, until the Morning Sickness crept up on you.  Don’t let the morning sickness ruin the fun of being pregnant. Here are some tips that can help you get rid of that sick feeling… Acupressure– This technique is different from Acupuncture. A huge plus is that there are no needles involved.
