The purpose as well as the aim of this project is to understand the effect of probiotics on gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction such as nausea, vomiting, and constipation that are found during the first and second trimesters of pregnancy. The primary objective of this project is to uncover whether probiotics have an effect on GI functional disorders. The secondary objective is to identify the microbiota associated with probiotic intake. The tested hypothesis is that gut microbiota influences the GI functions and may influence constipation, nausea, and vomiting during pregnancy.
