Morning sickness usually strikes early in pregnancy and lasts for several weeks. It is due to your pregnancy hormones and is believed to aim at protecting your baby from harmful substances. Recent research has actually found several interesting benefits of morning sickness, which you can read about here.
It is also interesting to note that morning sickness is a lot less common in cultures where the diet is mainly vegetarian.
In any case, pregnancy nausea can be very hard to endure. Knowing that it most likely will level off in the beginning of the second trimester, if not earlier, may help. Most studies indicate that morning sickness starts at around 6 weeks pregnant and then for around 50% of all pregnant women, it is completely gone by week 14 of their pregnancy.
