Nausea and vomiting, affecting 90% of pregnancies, are normal as long as they are not excessive and do not make the mother exhausted. It has even been shown that pregnancies with nausea and vomiting result in better results. In a recent study, neural development was evaluated in children aged 3-7 years and it was determined that children whose mothers experienced nausea and vomiting scored better than those whose mothers did not experience nausea and vomiting.
While 60% of nausea and vomiting will pass in the 12th week, 90% will pass in the 16th week.
The rate of nausea and vomiting, which we call hyperemesis gravidarum, which does not go away during pregnancy and makes the mother exhausted, is between 0.5% and 2%.
