NVP starting late in pregnancy

Question:
I'm 14 weeks pregnant and ended up in the hospital this weekend after severe vomiting and stomach pain, after bloodwork and urine being checked and came back normal I was given a pink lady, gravol and a prescription for diclectin. Is it not unusual to develop morning sickness at this stage in my pregnancy considering I have been fine up until this point? I have been unable to keep anything solid down. Will the baby get sufficient nutrients when I'm not able to eat very much? I'm still taking my Materna vitamin.

Answer:
It is very unusual to develop symptoms of NVP at this stage of your pregnancy, as virtually all women who suffer with NVP develop it before 10 weeks of pregnancy. You need to go to your doctor and investigate other causes.
