Nausea during pregnancy is caused by several changes like high estrogen, which can create stomach acidity. Also, women with low blood sugar may experience more nausea a mood swings during pregnancy.
Morning sickness can happen anytime during the day, but it can be more common in the morning due to this low blood sugar after hours of fasting and an overnight accumulation of stomach acid.

Not all women experience morning sickness the same way. This condition is more common during the first three months of pregnancy as the hormones are adjusting to the changes of gestation. In many cases it is not severe and it will gradually disappear.

Remember that every woman and every pregnancy is different so you may or may not experience nausea and morning sickness during the first pregnancy, but in the subsequent pregnancies or vice versa.
