NVP and Solid Foods

NVP Counselor
Date: 2003-10-31

Question:
I am suffering from terrible NVP and have found soild foods all but impossible to stomach. Please tell me there is some relief in sight. I have lost over 10 pounds and am worried about the health of my baby. I am 7 weeks along and am feeling like I will never get to 12 weeks.

Answer:
Most women with NVP find it difficult to eat solid foods. We suggest that you eat small amounts (no more than a bite or two of any food every hour) to keep something in your stomach at all times. Call us at 1-800-436-8477 for more information. If your symptoms are severe and you have experienced weight loss, speak to your doctor. Safe treatment is available.
