New research confirms women plagued by morning sickness early in pregnancy are less likely to miscarry.Researchers at the University of North Carolina tracked the pregnancies of more than 2,400 American women.

The team found that women who had no nausea or vomiting in their first trimester were more than three times as likely to miscarry as those who did suffer from morning sickness.

The miscarriage risk increased 12-fold for pregnant women who were 35 and older with no morning sickness.
