In brief: Nuasea/vomiting

We believe it may be a primitive protective mechanism that helps to ensure the mother does not get exposed to spoiled food and toxins.
Usually the symptoms will get better by about 10 weeks, although some women continue to have symptoms throughout the pregnancy.

In brief: Nausea and vomiting

Nausea and vomiting can be one of the first signs of pregnancy, and usually begins around the 6th week of pregnancy.
It can occur at anytime of the day, and for most women it seems to stop at the 12th week of pregnancy. Morning sickness is not harmful to you or your baby, but if you experience excessive vomiting and cannot manage to keep your food down, you may have hyperemesis gravidarum. Hyper.
