NVP just as bad with the second child

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-03-13

Question:
I recently became pregnant with my second child and my morning sickness seems like it's going to be just as bad as it was with my first pregnancy. I was sick all 9 months and am very afraid that it will happen this time also. It's almost to the point where I just can't handle it anymore I don't know what else to do. I've tried many different methods on trying to at leastsupress it but nothing seems to be working what else can I do before I go crazy?

Answer:
There is safe, effective treatment for your NVP, so you do not have to suffer for 9 months. If you live in North America, you can call our toll free number at 1 800 436-8477 to find out how to treat it from one of our specially trained counselors. If not, you can download our treatment algorithm and show it to your doctor. You can find the algorithm on this website at http://www.motherisk.org/women/updatesDetail.jsp?content_id=348
