Morning sickness? More like 'all day and all night’ sickness! One of the most common signs of early pregnancy, morning sickness involves feeling nauseated and possible vomiting first thing in the morning, but it isn't unusual for mums-to-be to feel nauseous at any time of the day or night.

Sensitivity to certain smells, brushing your teeth or even having the toothbrush at the back of your mouth can all cause your tummy to be overwhelmed with nausea or vomit.

Morning sickness affects up to 85% of all pregnant women. Mainly a feature of early pregnancy, it is believed to happen due to your body's increasing levels of pregnancy hormones. It usually begins around the fourth week of pregnancy and starts to subside around 12 weeks.

For an unlucky minority, morning sickness can continue well into the second trimester and in rare circumstances, some pregnant women suffer morning sickness for the entire duration of their pregnancy.
