Morning Sickness, Causes and ToxinsI don't know if morning sickness runs in my family. I was terribly nauseated the entire first trimester when I was pregnant with my daughter. I had to sit in a recliner all day since laying down made it worse.
My mother doesn't really remember, and I never had the opportunity to ask my grandmothers (and both have passed away). However, there may be an "evolutionary" reason we experience morning sickness. The following article explains more:
Blame that Morning Sickness on Your Ancient Ancestors, Karen Barrow
From the article:
To further look at this phenomenon, Roberts then compared only those women from Europe and North America and pinpointed the types of foods that seem to trigger the symptoms of morning sickness: sugars, alcohol and meat. Additionally, women who ate high amounts of cereal-based products tended to have lower-than-average rates of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

The researchers theorize that women's bodies have slowly developed an aversion to sugar, alcohol and meat because all of these foods contain high levels of toxins that could be potentially dangerous to a mother and her child. Cereals, on the other hand, tend to contain a very low level of toxins, so they could possibly be safer for a woman to eat. Remember, however, that these toxins may not pose the same hazard now that they did in the days of ancient man. (www.sciencedaily.healthology.com)
