Nausea throughout the day

■ 1st trimester

What if you don't just have morning sickness — you also have afternoon, evening and night sickness? Because the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy are commonly referred to as morning sickness, you may wonder if there's something wrong if you're experiencing these symptoms throughout the day. In fact, morning sickness is a misnomer because nausea can occur any time of day.

In one study of 160 pregnant women, less than 2 percent had nausea only in the mornings. For most women, nausea lasted throughout the day. Other research has found similar results. (See also Morning sickness; Vomiting.)
