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'm 7 weeks pregnant, second pregnancy - miscarried the first a few months ago. I have been taking Diclectin(4 pills/day) for NVP for the last week. I think it's helping a little. My main problem is the nausea, it goes away if I eat something and returns within an hour. I've already gained 10 lbs. in the past three weeks. Eating seems to be the only thing that temporarily takes away the nausea - I'm afraid that I will gain WAY too much weight. Is it possible that more Diclectin would help?
Please call the Motherisk NVP Helpline and speak to one of our counsellors. It's a toll free number(1 800 436-8477). The counselor will give you more detailed information.
