NVP throughout pregnancy

Question:
Hi There, I am in my 32nd week of pregnancy and I started getting NVP again as of last week. I was on diclectin from week 7 to week 17 for NVP and after that my nausea and vomiting subsided for the most part. I experieinced vomiting about once a week through the second trimester and as of last week, I am nauseous in the morning and throw up 2-3 times a day. I thought morning sickeness only occured in the first trimester. Is this something I should be concerned about? My doctor's appointment is in another 3 weeks. Thanks

Answer:
Some women suffer from NVP throughout their pregnancy, even up until delivery. You may want to take the Diclectin again if it helped before.
