I don't know ... there are already a million posts in my DDC about morning sickness, bloating, headaches, etc. And when the symptoms go away a lot of women freak out thinking something's wrong. I remember my SIL doing that. Every other day she'd be calling her doc ... her boobs didn't hurt as much, or she hadn't thrown up that morning, or whatever.

I just put on bigger pants, took some vitamins, and drank some tap water (really helps the morning sickness for me!).

I think it is just taking it in stride. My body's just doing what it needs to and I trust it. If you're looking at it from a really medicalized perspective, every little symptom and twinge is going to mean something (possibly bad!). I'm sure that contributes to the perception of it. Not to say they don't really have morning sickness or headaches or whatever, just that when you think about something it does seem worse.
