NVP Symptoms and Effects
Date: 2000-05-01

Question:
I am 6 and a half weeks pregnant. My symptoms include swollen and tender breasts, insomnia, and up to yesterday a mild form of nausea and tiredness. My nausea seems to be a lot less pronounced the last days, and I am worried that something is wrong. (My last pregnancy ended in a missed abortion, discovered at 13 weeks.) Can the symptoms go up and down like this, or could the morning sickness only have lasted a couple of weeks? Or should I be concerned my pregnancy is over? I hope you have an answer for me.

Answer:
All women, all pregnancies, all symptoms are different. Even two pregnancies for the same woman can be different. Nausea, especially if mild, might not be present at all times. However,if you are really concerned an early ultrasound test could probably be arranged by your doctor.
