One of the most frequently experienced symptoms of pregnancy is morning sickness, which usually lasts for about a month for most women. It can start as soon as 7 days following conception. Morning sickness does not always occur just in the morning, some nausea lasts throughout the entire day. It is caused by the fluctuating levels of estrogen in the body.
Some women have morning sickness with no apparent cause, while others get nauseous from certain strong smells, especially coffee or the certain food aromas.
This is one of the easier symptoms of pregnancy to work around for some women. Morning sickness may often be alleviated by eating smaller, more numerous snacks or reduced portion meals. Eating crackers regularly or dry toast is helpful to a lot of women. Morning sickness tends to even out then disappear altogether once the second trimester begins and your body changes slow down a bit.
