Morning sickness is when a woman feels nauseous during pregnancy. This nauseous feeling may or may not come with vomiting. It often occurs in the morning, but it can be a problem at any time of day. Morning sickness is most common during the first trimester. In some cases, it may continue throughout pregnancy. Although morning sickness is unpleasant, it is usually harmless unless the woman develops severe and continual vomiting (hyperemesis gravidarum), a condition that requires more intense treatment.
The exact cause of this condition is not known, but it seems to be related to normal hormonal changes that occur in pregnancy.
This condition is usually diagnosed based on your signs and symptoms.
