What causes morning sickness and what does it actually indicate?

The causes of morning sickness are not always clear. There is some thought that hormone changes increases in progesterone and estrogen cause morning sickness. Usually about 70 to 80 percent of women suffer from morning sickness during early pregnancy; some even begin noticing nausea as early as four to eight weeks.

Morning sickness occurs not just in the morning but actually all through the day. It usually ends at about 14 to 16 weeks. One thing that triggers morning sickness is an empty stomach. One way to battle that would be to actually keep food in the belly every two to three hours. There have also been reports showing that vitamin B-6 and calcium can help as well. You can alleviate the symptoms by consuming small, frequent meals, low fat/non oily foods and drinking plenty of fluids.
