NVP Symptoms and Effects
This is my fourth pregnancy and I am concerned because I didn't have the all-day queasiness that I have with this pregnancy. My first pregnancy was 12 years ago and I only had a few occasions of nausea-my first-born was a son. I lost my second baby at 8.5 weeks-no nausea at all. My third pregnancy was just three years ago and I felt great throughout-again no nausea-I had a girl. With this pregnancy I feel quite different and the queasiness doesn't stay away! I feel the worst in the evenings and even run a low-grade fever. I have not vomitted much though. I also know that I am not having twins. Could there be something wrong? Most women I have talked to either were sick with all or none. Or, there seemed to be a pattern with the sex of the children. I would appreciate your help.
When it comes to nausea and vomiting, every pregnancy is different! You can't count on a pattern. Also, we know that nausea is just as bothersome as vomiting and there are safe and effective treatments you can use. For more information please call our toll free NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477.
