Worsening NVP at 7 weeks of pregnancy

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-04-11

Question:
I am 7 weeks pregnant and have had morning sickness for the past 6 weeks vomitting in the evenings and nausea in the morning - it has gotten substaintally worse over the past 4 days - even though I am drinking 3 litres of water plus juice and milk (although I still have my coffees in the morning) and gingerale - I feel like I am dehydrating..... Not to mention my attitude is worsing along with my attention span and ability to stay awake - any tips?!?!

Answer:
There is no need for you to suffer from nausea and vomiting in pregnancy as there are safe and effective treatments. If you live in North America, please call our specially trained NVP counselors at our toll free number( 1800 436-8477 ) to receive information on the treatments that are available.
