Sick all the time - Time to see the doctor

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-06-06

Question:
I'm currently 12w pregnant, and sick since week 6. I've already lost 8 lbs and have been trying to eat anything I can to gain but I vomit all the time. The past 2 days have been worse, I can't keep anything down at all. Water, crackers, Diclicton, prenatl vitmains. I've tried pretty much everything--Sea bands, ginger, peppermint, lemon, diclecton, gravol, carbs(chips, bread, crackers) and I'm still not getting any relief. Should I just wait it out a little bit longer? or when should I go see my docotr?

Answer:
It is probably time for you to see your doctor, especially if you have become dehydrated. You may also want to call our toll free NVP helpline number at 1-800 436-8477 to discuss further the treatments you say you have tried already, but did not work.
