For some, morning sickness becomes worse until the 20th week and for a small number of moms it will continue throughout the pregnancy. This condition is called hyperemesis gravidarum. It is not dangerous, but you should carefully monitor your diet with your healthcare provider to make sure you are getting all the necessary nutrients.
It is helpful to keep a log of what you eat, how much, and were you able to keep it down. This will give a clear picture of what you are consuming. Also, it will aid in pinpointing any sensitivities. Noting the time of your meals is helpful also.
I unfortunately experienced this in all of my pregnancies. To help yourself thrive despite it, get plenty of rest, stay well hydrated, and eat nutrient dense foods. Also, upping your self care, exercise, and spiritual practices will keep you focused and positive as you move toward your birth.
