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 much 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 at the beginning of the second trimester, if not earlier, may help.
Most studies indicate that morning sickness starts at around six weeks of pregnancy, and then for around 50% of all pregnant women, it is completely gone by week 14 of their pregnancy. But these are just averages. Let’s make our own morning sickness survey!
Vote in the morning sickness polls below. The first poll is for when your morning sickness started, and the second is for when it stopped.
