Morning sickness is defined as nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy. It is most commonly due to increased hormone levels during early pregnancy, but can be caused by various factors throughout all stages of gestation. It usually occurs within 2-5 weeks of conception and, in most cases, subsides by 12-16 weeks (the fourth month of pregnancy). Even though it is referred to as, “morning” sickness, it can affect women at any time of the day. While nausea and vomiting are the most common ailments of pregnancy, there are many ways to manage your symptoms.
