NVP early in pregnancy

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-12-13

Question:
I am 4 weeks pregnant and have had nausea since my second week of pregnancy which lasts all day. Food generally turns me off and if I don't eat on time I usually get light headed or dizzy. I feel better while eating but then my nausea returns upon finishing my meals. What can I do to stop this nausea and is it normal to have it so early in my pregnancy?

Answer:
It is very normal to start suffering NVP this early in the pregnancy and there is safe effective medication that you can take that will help. You may want to telephone our toll free NVP Helpline at 1 800437-8477 for more information
