the complex of symptoms commonly known as morning sickness is due to the hormonal imbalance that occurs during the first half of the first trimester. Textbooks say it can alst for about 1 month in some cases. some women might not experience it at all.

Besides hormonal imbalance, it's also about natural immunological reaction between mother's body defense system and the embryo/fetus. In this period, mother's body is faced by two options, whether accept the pregnancy (generating immunotolerance) or reject the pregnancy (abortus or absorption). Naturally, mother's defense system will accept the baby as self cell, thus the pregnancy can continue.

Taking drugs during pregnancy? I wouldn't even if doctors say it is safe, because some drugs can show negative effects on different people. And if something unexpected happens, the doctor will only say he/ she is "sorry". Nothing more. But that's her choice of course, this is only my opinion.

I think for the first time, the embryo is accepted because of the mother's hormonal cycle which indirectly causing some kinda immunosupressive effect on the T-cells. When this phenomenon happens during some periods, then T-cells will generate an immunotolerance for the fetus. Is it right?

That's why I said "naturally". In some case, embryo expresses foreign protein as a result of its mutated DNA. Then mother's system will reject it.

About hormonal system, yes progesteron helps the mother to provide a good environment for implantation. However, there's a condition when mother has unbalance hormonal system between progesteron and estradiol, which lead to abortion.

So can some woman have stronger reaction because of over active immune system, and makes them more prone to excessive nausea (compared to other woman) and natural abortion?

I think that it's possible....um, some kinda like autoimmune dissease or that immunity problem induced by viruses...I'll check for it for the virus-induced one....

Simply see her gynecologist and discuss about this case. NEVER take any drugs without prescription from doctor!!! If the doctor must give her pills, I am pretty sure those pills will not harmful for her pregnancy.

Of course, everything is possible, even an exception :wink: Hypersensitivy and autoimmune diseases contribute in this case. Natural abortion or abortus is common. The cause could be various, immune system, hormonal system, nervous system, psychology.
