The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
At about 41/2 weeks pregnant (from conception), I started getting terrible nausea, but no vomiting. Since I was feeling so nauseous, I went to the doctor and he prescribed Diclectin. I am now 9 weeks pregnant and still taking the Diclectin. Even though I take the Diclectin, I still feel nauseous, but when I eat, I feel better. Because eating makes me feel better and because I have nausea without vomiting, I am worried that the amount I am eating will cause me to gain weight. Any suggestions would be great.
Please call our NVP Helpline (1-800-436-8477) for information on how to deal with your nausea, as well as optimal use of Diclectin. One of our main recommendations is for women to eat very often (approximately every hour) and just one bite of food in order to keep something in the stomach at all times (but never too much at once). Tastes vary when it comes to snacks and most people worry about excessive weight gain. You might want to choose fruits and vegetables and low fat snacks.
