When Does Morning Sickness Peak?

Wait, there's a peak coming to this?   You may be a bit surprised to learn, but yes morning sickness does peak!  Well, for most people that is.... let's delve into it a little deeper shall we?  You probably already know, nothing is ever cut and dry, especially with pregnancies.  But there are some norms out there you can gauge yourself by.... 

When Does Morning Sickness Peak?

Does Morning Sickness Peak
When did your morning sickness peak?  Many
women claim around weeks 7-9 are the worst for
nausea during pregnancy!
The majority of women are going to see the morning sickness begin after the first month or 4 weeks of pregnancy.  You must keep in mind though, every woman is different and every pregnancy is different.  Some women are going to experience something totally different than what you might, and that's ok.  Even if you don't have morning sickness, it doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong. 

Now there is a huge range from about 4-18 weeks along when they say morning sickness can peak.  But most women are wanting a little something more specific.  There's no way of knowing for sure when yours will peak, but I did some research and talking amongst women myself.  I see many women claim their morning sickness peak was around weeks 7-9

Some women never get over their morning sickness, it just keeps going right on up to the end. Though experts aren't for sure what causes morning sickness, it's thought to be a rise in hormone levels of hCG.  There are some things you can do to stop morning sickness.

  2. This was a great article about when morning sickness peaks. I didn't know that it had a peak! I just found out two weeks ago that I am pregnant. My husband and I are so excited! We are also really nervous. I have been doing a lot of research about pregnancy. Hopefully this will help prepare me for the journey.
