What does it mean when NVP stops?

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-07-03

Question:
I am in my 11th week of pregnancy. I had intermittent queasiness and some vomiting starting in my 7th week and continuing until the beginning of my 10th week. Since then however, I have been fine -- no queasiness really to speak of. My breasts are still sore and I still feel tired, although less so than before. Could this mean that I have miscarried? I thought NVP lasted til the end of the first trimester, around 13 weeks?

Answer:
It is most common for NVP to subside by the end of the first trimester. However, it can come and go anytime in pregnancy. Because you do not have it anymore does not mean that you have miscarried. If you are concerned you should go and see your physician
