No such thing as "normal time" for morning sickness

NVP Counselor

Question:
I had really bad m/s from week 6-16 (took Diclectin). I'm 29 weeks pregnant and the m/s has come back since 27 weeks. Although it's not severe and tolerable, when I mentioned it to the doctor, she asked me if I had a bladder infection. She also told me it is NOT NORMAL for the m/s to come back at a later time like this. I gave a urine sample, but will not know if I have a bladder infection for a few more days (I have no symptoms of bladder infection at this time). I was under the impression that this is 'normal' for some women. Is it?

Answer:
There is no such thing as NORMAL times for morning sickness to occur in pregnancy as it can happen at any time and can come and go at any time. Whenever it occurs it should be treated appropriately.
