Morning Sickness in Pregnancy

Nausea and morning sickness is one of the most common and well-known of the early pregnancy symptoms, generally beginning as early as 2-3 weeks after conception and lasting until the end of the first trimester. This pregnancy symptom can range from mild queasiness to constant, uncontrollable vomiting.

A few unlucky women can struggle with nausea throughout the entire nine months (a condition called ?hyperemesis gravidarum?), while others may go through their pregnancy without even a day of morning sickness. Don?t be fooled by it?s name, because morning sickness may not just be limited to the first part of the day, but may stick around nearly all the time- day and night.

During pregnancy, you may notice your gag reflex is more sensitive as well, which can cause vomiting. Besides being an early symptom of pregnancy, nausea and vomiting can be caused by illness such as food poisoning or the stomach flu.
