I am in my 14th week and the vomiting has increased in the last week. I have had nausea, pretty much all day since week 6, however, it has eased off since week 13. While the nausea has eased, the vomiting has increased. Is this normal, and is there anything i can do to ease the vomiting? when does vomiting become dangerous to my health and baby? Thank you.
The length and extent of NVP is different for everyone. It is not clear whether you were vomiting before last week. If vomiting only started recently, you want to ensure that no other condition might be the cause, such as a viral infection, etc. Even though vomiting in itself is not harmful to the baby you want to ascertain its cause and treat accordingly. Should it be due solely to the pregnancy, please call our NVP Helpline at 1-800-436-8477 for information on safe treatment available in Canada and described in the questions and answers below.
