Am I having "Morning Sickness?"

Throwing up first thing in the morning? Wondering if you're pregnant? 

If you are throwing up first thing in the morning or any other time of day, it's a good idea to check with your doctor. You could have the flu, food poisoning or any variety of problems. However, nausea and vomiting is accompanied by other symptoms of pregnancy, you may want to get a pregnancy test as well.

Why do they call it morning sickness when I feel nauseated all day long?

"Morning sickness" is just an expression. "Nausea and vomiting" is a real symptom of pregnancy, and it can happen any time of day. Many women experience nausea, with or without vomiting, early in the day and as the day goes on, it lessens.

However, not all experiences are typical. Nausea and vomiting can happen in any phase of pregnancy, even though it usually occurs (3/4 of the time) in the first fourteen weeks and then subsides. If this is not the case with you, this does not necessarily mean anything is wrong with you, but you should see your doctor to make sure.

What causes nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy?

Nausea and vomiting can be caused by increase in hormones, such as estrogen and hCG, increased sensitivity to odors, or merely a stomach that is sensitive to the process of pregnancy.
