Earlier research found that pregnant women who suffer from morning sickness were less likely to miscarry-- suggesting that if you were nausea-free you had a higher risk of an unsuccessful pregnancy.
Now, a new study out of Pennsylvania State University says those reports are misleading.
(----------------)

203 pregnant women between the ages of 18 and 47 were studied-- and researchers found the younger they were, the more likely they were to have morning sickness, and they also found that as women get older, they have a higher risk of unsuccessful pregnancy.

Consequently, when researchers put it all together they said the absence of morning sickness does not indicate a greater likelihood of miscarrying.
