The fact of the matter is that every pregnancy is different. While a woman may experience certain symptoms with one pregnancy, it is by no means a guarantee that she will experience the exact same symptoms with a subsequent pregnancy. It is possible, then, that you might have had morning sickness with your first baby, but not have it again with a subsequent baby.
Having said that, it is important to realize a few things. First of all, morning sickness is one of the most common symptoms of pregnancy. In fact, it is estimated that more than 70% of women will experience some degree or another of morning sickness. So, for each pregnancy you have, there is a good chance that you are going to have morning sickness.
It is also important to know what it is that may cause morning sickness. While experts aren’t entirely certain on this point, there are some ideas about what may be behind it. It is believed by many that morning sickness is caused by the changing levels of hormones, such as human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), or estrogen that occur during pregnancy. This seems to fit with the experience of many women, as just around the time that morning sickness starts to subside, those hormone levels are starting to taper off a bit.
Just because you had morning sickness with your first baby, it doesn’t mean that you will have it again in the same way with a subsequent pregnancy. For example, some women experience morning sickness at a certain time of the day (which is, of course, not always in the morning). Some women experience morning sickness occasionally, while others experience it almost constantly. The frequency and the severity of your morning sickness can definitely change from your first baby to the next one.
One of the positive things about having morning sickness again after having had it with your first baby is that you will probably have learned some effective ways to reduce your morning sickness, if not avoid it altogether, with your first baby. Those remedies you used with your first baby, whether it was herbal teas, acupressure bands, or hypnosis, will very likely help you when you have morning sickness again.
