In the early weeks, nausea and vomiting are common. ' Morning sickness' generally starts in about 4-6 weeks of pregnancy and may continue till about the 16th week. Usually, it is present in the early hours of the morning and shows signs of abatement as the day progresses. In some cases sickness may continue throughout the day. Sometimes nausea is more persistent than vomiting. In some cases there may not be morning sickness.
So long as it does not affect the general health morning sickness is an ordinary physiological phenomenon associated with pregnancy. Occasionally it may become pathological symptom when the nausea and vomiting become so excessive as to prevent the possibility of any nourishment being retained or even taken by the patient. This is called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Vomiting may, however, be due to other causes referable to the gastro- intestinal tract, or other organs.
