How Long Does Morning Sickness Last | Promise Pregnancy

When you don't feel good, time passes slow. The good news is that morning sickness (usually) doesn't last too long!

It's important to understand that every woman and every pregnancy is different. While you may be experiencing morning sickness and a friend of yours isn't, it's all up to the individual's bodily makeup to decide whether or not you will have nausea and vomiting. What causes morning sickness can vary from mother to mother. 

Up to 75% of pregnant women experience nausea in the first trimester of their pregnancy, while only half have issues with vomiting. The typical pregnant woman will feel relief from nausea and vomiting around week 14, or the end of their first trimester. While it is not incredibly common, some women report morning sickness lasting the entirety of their pregnancy.

Notice that it tends to be more of an "all-day-sickness" rather than confined to the morning? This can be normal depending on what triggers your stomach to flare up. However if you fear you may have extreme morning sickness, or Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or are losing weight rapidly (1-2 pounds a week or more) you need to speak with your healthcare professional. 

While it may feel like torture, keep in mind your body is doing an incredible thing! You are creating life and at times it may be uncomfortable. Know that your morning sickness will subside by your first trimester and you're one step closer to holding your bundle of joy!
