Morning Sickness Directory

Morning sickness refers to nausea and vomiting that commonly occur during pregnancy. The term "morning sickness" can be misleading, however, since pregnant women may have these symptoms at any time of the day. Morning sickness typically occurs in the first few weeks of pregnancy and usually goes away by the second trimester. Snacking on salty foods, like potato chips, and drinking lemonade or ginger ale may help tame the stomach upset. However, some pregnant women have an extreme type of morning sickness, called hyperemesis gravidarum, which requires treatment.
