causes of morning sickness

You’re more likely to have nausea or sickness during your pregnancy if the following applies to you:

 
 
  • You’re pregnant with twins or triplets. This may cause higher levels of hCG, oestrogen, or other hormones in your body. You’re also more likely to have the symptoms more severe than most. However this is not always the case.

  • You had bad morning sickness in your last pregnancy.

  • You have had a history of nausea or sickness as a birth control side effect. This is usually your body’s response to oestrogen.

  • You are prone to motion sickness.

  • You have a history of motion sickness.

  • If your mother or sisters had severe morning sickness, there’s a likely chance that you will too.
