NVP Symptoms and Effects
Date: 2000-03-20

I have been experiencing NVP now for 4 weeks and am in my tenth week of pregnancy. Although it is often described as nausea I have been experiencing two feelings simultaneously; nausea and hunger pains. Is this normal?

NVP symptoms differ greatly, including nausea and hunger pains. Most women feel worse on an empty stomach. You might try to have frequent small snacks, but do not drink liquids at the same time. This may alleviate your stomach pain. If this does not help, please contact your doctor for further advice or treatment.
