NVP at 33 weeks

Question:
I am entering my 33 week of pregnancy and have not had any relief from nausea. I have actually lost weight during my pregnancy. There hasn't seemed to be anything that makes it better or worse. Its just regular. It's always bile no matter what is in my stomach. Is this normal or is this harmful to me and/or my child?

Answer:
Most nausea and vomiting does subside by the end of the first trimester of pregnancy, however a small number of women unfortunately do suffer for the whole of the pregnancy and you happen to be one of them. This is definitely not harmful for you or your baby and there are safe and effective treatments you can use, so you do not have to suffer. If you live in North America, please call our toll free number 1 800 436-8477 to obtain information on these treatments
