NVP Symptoms and Effects
Date: 2000-01-25

Question:
I really had no symptoms of pregnancy (no common ones.) Does that mean something could be wrong? My doctor says so far all of my check ups are good. The baby's heart beat is normal. My weight is normal, blood pressure is normal, ultrasound is normal, my due date is correct. I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant.

Answer:
Even though 50 to 80 percent of all pregnant women experience some form of NVP, there are many women who do not experience it. Fortunately, NVP is not a prerequisite for a healthy pregnancy and we're glad to hear from someone who is enjoying an NVP-free pregnancy. Follow your doctors instructions and enjoy this special time.
