When is it normal to experience morning sickness in pregnancy?

Approximately 85% of all pregnant women experience some degree of nausea and vomiting in the first trimester (0-12 weeks) of pregnancy. Symptoms usually appear within 4-7 weeks and usually resolve by 16-20 weeks. However, morning sickness can occur throughout pregnancy and becomes a medical problem when the nausea/vomiting is severe and continues past the 16th week.
