Morning Sickness

Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is a typical symptom of pregnancy. Hormonal changes in the body cause nausea, which is often, but not always, in the morning before the mother has eaten. Not all women have morning sickness with pregnancy, and some women have morning sickness with one pregnancy and not with another. Sometimes certain foods or odors will contribute to morning sickness.

About Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is usually one of the first pregnancy. Nausea and vomiting, or just nausea, can occur in the morning anytime during the day. Usually, women start having morning sickness around the sixth week of pregnancy and stop experiencing it around the twelfth week. Sometimes it can occur throughout the entire pregnancy or not at all.

Diarrhea is not a sign of morning sickness.

Smoking should be discontinued if you believe you may be pregnant. Smoking can add to your nausea if experiencing morning sickness.

If you have excessive vomiting and nausea, consult your doctor. It may be a sign of a more serious condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum. This condition may require a hospital stay. Symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum include severe nausea and vomiting and weight loss.
