fifth week of pregnancy. It usually ceases at the end of the third or 

fourth month. Except in very severe cases, in which the physician should 

be consulted, the disorder is not serious, and requires but a little 

common-sense treatment, and rational habits of living. An authority 

says: "Eat of some fruit that best agrees with palate or stomach; drink 

hot water; eat nothing until a real hunger demands food. Where nausea 

occurs after eating, a tart apple or orange is good." Another authority 

says: "Let women suffering from morning sickness try acid fruit--apples, 

oranges, or even lemons, if their sourness is not unpleasant. If a 

single orange or apple after each meal does not suffice, let them try 

two; let them eat ten if that number is necessary to conquer the 

distress. The principle is a correct one, and the relief certain. Let 

fruit be eaten at all hours of the day--before meals and after, on 

going to bed at night and at getting up in the morning. If berries are 

in season, let them be eaten in the natural state--that is, without 

sugar. If the sickness still continues, omit a meal now and then, and 

substitute fruit in its stead. By persistence in this course, not only 

will nausea be conquered, but an easy confinement guaranteed." 

 

The pregnant woman often develops a capricious appetite. This disorder 

may manifest in one or more of several forms, as for instance: the woman 

may lose her appetite, and take but little food; or she may develop an 

abnormally large appetite, and eat much more than is necessary; or she 

may take a dislike to certain kinds of food--many women have an aversion 

toward meat during pregnancy; or she may have a "craving" for certain 

articles of food, sometimes for kinds of food not liked at other times, 

such as sour pickles, sour cabbage, etc. A little common sense, and the 

presence of attractive articles of fruits, etc., will do much to relieve 

these troubles; in extreme cases the physician's advice will help. 

 

The pregnant woman should have her teeth put in good order as soon as 

possible, as troubles with teeth sometimes manifest themselves during 

pregnancy, and give much trouble and annoyance. Difficulty in urination, 

constipation, piles, irritation or itching of the genital organs, 

varicose veins, liver spots, and similar disorders, which are sometimes 

manifest during pregnancy, in some form or degree, should receive the 

attention and care of a competent physician. 

 

The following general advice from a competent authority is worthy of 

being followed: "If everything is satisfactory, if there is no severe
