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.
I am just starting my 14th week of pregnancy. I have had terrible nausea, dry retching, and some vomitting since week 5. I have been told by my doctor and others that I should be feeling better and more energetic by now. It's very frustrating that I'm not. Should I resign myself to the fact that this may continue throughout the pregnancy?
You did not say whether you are being treated for your NVP as there are safe and effective treatments you can use. Unfortunately, not every woman feels better by the 2nd trimester as your dr and other people told you. A small number of women continue to suffer throughout their pregnancy and you may be one of them. For more information on the treatment, please call our toll free NVP Helpline 1 800-436-8477 and speak to one of our specially trained counselors.
