Morning sickness is the thing that literally brings women to their knees in pain. So, having a rough idea of when it will end can *hopefully* be the bright light to get you through the queasiness. Unfortunately, there’s no clear cut rule when it will end. We previously mentioned that it can be one of the first signs of pregnancy. American Pregnancy Association reports that nausea often starts around the sixth week of pregnancy and ends around the 12th week for most women. Note we said “most.” Some pour souls can experience it into their second trimester and potentially for their entire pregnancy. If symptoms are severe, you could have hyperemesis gravidarum. Contact your obstetrician if you cannot keep food down and/or the symptoms are impacting your life. Complications could occur if you and your baby aren’t getting enough nutrients.
