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 had Hyperemesis G. during my first pregnancy. I am about 5 weeks post-conception with my second pregnancy right now and am starting to experience NVP again, but it doesn't seem to be as severe as the first time. Is there an average time during the first trimester when the symptoms of NVP seem to peak, or be at their worst?
No two women and no two pregnancies are alike, so the fact that your symptoms of NVP seem less severe during this pregnancy is a hopeful sign. However, you may want to start managing or treating those symptoms early. Early management may help to avoid a worsening of the condition which may occur between weeks 8 and 12.
