Morning Sickness | Symptoms


I’m nauseous all day. Is it morning sickness?

Although morning sickness is more common in the morning, it can occur at any time of the day or night.

How long will morning sickness last?

Morning sickness tends to go away later in pregnancy, and it's almost always gone by the second trimester (after 13 weeks, or during the fourth month). However, keep in mind that there isn't a set time for it to stop because each woman is different and each pregnancy is different.

Will morning sickness hurt my baby?

Morning sickness can only become a problem for your baby if you can't keep down any foods or fluids and you begin to lose a lot of weight. You should call your doctor if you:

  • Have lost more than 2 pounds
  • Vomit blood (which can appear bright red or black)
  • Have vomited more than 4 times in 1 day
  • Have not been able to keep fluids down for more than 1 day
