How to Deal with Nausea and Vomiting During Early Pregnancy

Some 70 percent of women experience nausea within the first two months of pregnancy and about half experience vomiting. These symptoms generally begin within four weeks after conception and subside by nine or ten weeks. Nausea and vomiting last throughout pregnancy in 10 to 15 percent of women. Severe or prolonged nausea and vomiting are not considered normal and should be checked out by your health-care provider. Women who experience nausea or nausea and vomiting early in pregnancy are more than 60 percent less likely to miscarry than women who do not experience either nausea or vomiting. Increasing hormone levels that are thought to prompt nausea and vomiting may be responsible for the reduced risk miscarriage. It is preferable to "Eat through" your nausea and vomiting rather than to lose weight.
