My name is Josie Minks and I'm a labor and delivery nurse and I am here to answer the question about is morning sickness constant? And morning sickness usually lasts from the first week of pregnancy to the twelfth week or well into your second trimester, but it can last for the entire pregnancy and usually morning sickness is caused by the hormone changes. So sometimes there's a higher progesterone and less estrogen in which just the whole imbalance can make, can throw you into nausea and vomiting, which is morning sickness. And sometimes, it lasts throughout the entire pregnancy and sometimes just in the first trimester, and some ways to help with morning sickness are to eat smaller meals, have Saltines in the first fifteen minutes of waking, lots of fluids, fluids before you eat, and then wait a...wait a bit and then some water or juice after you eat, but continually drinking water and juices throughout the day, and lots of rest and and exercise.
