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.
with my first pregnancy my "morning sickness" was very managable by 7-8 weeks...is it likely that this time I will get lucky...I hate to think of being this sick for for another month or two.
No two pregnancies are alike. The length and extent of NVP can vary. Fifty percent to 80% of women do experience NVP during the first trimester. Mild symptoms are manageable if they remain constant throughout that period. Some women, however, see their NVP increase during weeks 8 to 12. Safe treatment, when needed, is available here in Canada. The approved medication in Canada is Diclectin which contains Vitamin B6 and doxylamine succinate.
