Question:
I am currently 12 weeks pregnant and have been suffering with nausea and vommiting the whole time.I am on Diclectin. I am at the point where I feel mentally this illness has taken its worst toll. I cannot go in the car anywhere I get even worse. Right now every women I know in my family really do not believe that I could feel this bad. I am really sick of trying to justify this. I sometimes wish they could feel like this just for one day. I have even left my famliy doctor of 8 years because of her ignorance about this very real sickness. My husband is very sympathetic and asks why I need other people to understand. I just do he is the only person I can talk to I am at home sick all day by myself. I have stopped answering my phone just to avoid peoples ignorant attitudes. What should i do. I have axiety attacks and just feel like escaping this body and this baby even though I really want this baby I am do not feel like the loving mother I should feel like

Answer:
It is plain that your NVP symptoms have become overwhelming and are affecting you severely. We know how difficult and debilitating these symptoms can be for some.

Please call our NVP Helpline and speak to a counselor. You will be able to discuss your symptoms, review optimum treatment options and talk about other conditions that might be contributing to your NVP. Please call 1-800-436-8477.
