Pregnancy morning sickness is a term to define the nausea, expectant mothers feel during the initial stages of pregnancy. Unlike its name, instead of being restricting to the morning hours could prevail all day long. But yes, for few women, it could be more prominent during the early hours and might subside as the day progresses. However, every pregnancy is different and therefore no two women can really undergo exactly the same changes in their entire course of pregnancy. It usually begins around the 4th to 6th week of the week by week pregnancy calendar and could stretch on till the 15th week. The majority of pregnant women do have this pregnancy sign, only 20% - 30% are lucky enough to have pregnancy without this symptom.
