NVP at 10 weeks

NVP Counselor
Date: 2003-04-22

Question:
Hi there, I have just started with NVP (last week)...my last period was Feb 10 and my doctor has yet to confirm how far along I am. I have been throwing up twice a day and I am worried that I am not getting enough nutrients in my body. Currently, I am feeling sick all day and all night with very little relief. Any advice you could give me on how I can mentally and physically deal with NVP would be great! (finding it very hard to go to work)

Answer:
Based on your last date of menstruation it seems you are nearly 10 weeks pregnant and right in what is typically a difficult period for NVP ( between weeks 8 to 12). For detailed information on coping with or treating your symptoms, clal our NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477. You should also discuss your symptoms with your doctor -- safe treatment is available.
