Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, also known as 'morning sickness', is very common in the early weeks of pregnancy. It doesn't put your baby at any increased risk and usually clears up between weeks 12 and 14 of pregnancy.
Nausea can be one of the most trying problems in early pregnancy. It comes at a time when you're probably feeling tired and emotional, and when many people around you may not realise you’re pregnant and expect you to be your normal self.
Morning sickness is usually a minor inconvenience of pregnancy, but for some women, it can have a significant adverse effect on their day-to-day activities and quality of life.
A very severe form of nausea and vomiting – hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) – can be serious and needs specialist treatment, sometimes in hospital.
