Vomiting with retching during pregnancy

NVP Counselor
Date: 2006-07-10

I am 14 and a half weeks pregnant with my first baby. I have had 2 episodes of spotting, for which I saw my MD. I had an ultrasound and was told I had a subchorionic bleed(a small one). My MD however told me there was nothing I could do and that I could continue on with my lifestyle as before(ie going to the gym, work). I have also had extreme vomiting with retching, which still persists and am wondering if this has contributed to the bleed. Is there anything in particular I should or should not be doing?
