Even post pregnancy I keep thinking about the reasoning behind. Have searched online but no reason seems apt… and logical to me.

  • No one knows for sure, though there’s no shortage of theories. A few factors that may be at play include:

    Increased levels of the pregnancy hormone hCG, which peaks around the time morning sickness is worst
    Rising levels of estrogen and progesterone, which relax the muscles of the digestive tract and make digestion less efficient
    The metallic taste that many women experience during pregnancy
    A sharper sense of smell due to pregnancy hormones
    Heartburn or gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD), which are more common during pregnancy
    Excess saliva, which can increase feelings of queasiness

    Not all pregnant women experience morning sickness — and not in the same way. Some have only occasionally queasy moments. Others feel nauseous around the clock but rarely or never throw up. A few vomit frequently.

  • From what I’ve been told, the nausea is caused by all the new pregnancy hormones surging through your body
