Forum > NVP Symptoms and Effects: Varying symptoms of NVP
Burping

NVP Counselor
Date: 2003-11-11

Question:
I am 8 weeks pregnant with my third child. It has been 7 years since my last pregnancy, but I would remember if I had been this sick. The NVP lasts 24/7 and started 3 weeks ago. Have tried many remedies with varying degrees of success - will see midwife this week for medical treatment. In meantime, what can you suggest for the constant burping?? Have tried OTCs such as gas -x, tums, etc. Feel like I could better control the other symptoms if I could just stop burping. Thanks.

Answer:
If you feel that your stomach and constant burping are your main discomfort, we suggest you discuss these symptoms and what you have already tried with your doctor. Safe medications are available to help with digestion. If all other issues have been addressed and relieved and the NVP persists, Diclectin (a safe medication approved in Canada) may be recommended. Talk to your doctor and call our NVP Helpline for more information.
