The Motherisk Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy (NVP) ForumMotherisk receives questions from around the world about morning sickness symptoms, effects, treatments and ways to cope. Those questions and answers are posted here for anyone to read, provided the reader acknowledges and accepts the proviso and disclaimer below.
Hi, I am 13,5 weeks pregnant. I have had all day nausea and vomiting since week 6. I had managed by taking small amounts of fluids, eating when I could, being positive and just hanging on until after 12 weeks. I have lost 4kg and some days been dehydrated. I have had about 5 'better days' but now I seem to be just as bad as before. I am taking Vit B6 and Metaclopramide. What advice do you have. I thought I would have turned a corner by now.
A small number of women continue to suffer from NVP well past the traditional 3 months, some right up until delivery. You did not say say how much Vitamin B6 and metoclopramide you are taking. You may want to speak to your physician to discuss the possibility of increasing the dose.
