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.
Yes, I am 2 1/2 months pregnant and I want to ask that I have lost my appetitie just a little bit , I am not as hunger as I use to be but my stomach make bubbles sounds is my baby okay?
Most women with NVP have no appetite and are not able to eat as much or maintain a good diet, especially during the first trimester. But these effects of NVP occur without harm to the baby. Eating a small amount of food every hour or hour and a half, and drinking liquids separately (not with food) may help you.
Some women need a stomach medication to help with digestion or if NVP is th sole cause of the symptoms, may be prescribed safe treatment, such as Diclectin.
