Reasons for Morning sickness
Morning sickness or nausea is very common in the early stage of pregnancy. It is mainly caused due to flooding of pregnancy harmones in your body.

The harmone ensures that all the requirements of your baby are met during these early weeks of pregnancy. HCG levels drop when placenta begins to nourish your baby. Then your nausea begins to dissapear gradualy.

Other harmones which cause morning sickness are stress harmones and even deficiency of nutrients like magnesium, vitamin B6 and so on. Around 14 to 16 weeks, your morning sickness should subside. For few women it lasts little longer. Few may experience it all through the pregnancy.
