Options: Morning sickness is the reaction your body has to Hcg (pregnancy hormone). Some ppl get the same reaction to TSH if they're hyperthyroid. You can start getting nauseous at 4 wks, w/ peak symptoms at 6wks, usually stopping by mid-2nd trimester. Natural remedies are ginger (tea/candy), vit B6. Rx: Metoclopramide/Reglan, hydroxyzine, benadryl, phenergan, (promethazine) and zofran are all good methods to try.

Regular meals: Morning sickness seems to be worse the longer you go between meals. Try eating small meals regularly throughout the day, including a healthy snack before bed. Keeping crackers at the bedside to eat before you get up may also help. Motion sickness wrist bands with acupressure may also help.

Thyroid : We are not entirely sure but there is some evidence to suggest it is because of transient overactivity of the thyroid. It probably is a primitive protective mechanism to prevent exposure to spoiled or rotten food.

No: Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy symptoms usually peaks at 8 weeks and most often gets better by 16 weeks. This may be normal for you depending on how far along you are. If you start spotting/vaginal bleeding, you should call your doctor or midwife.
