NVP and pregnant with twins

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-11-12

Question:
I'm 5 weeks pregnant with twins and already have NVP. This is the most uncomfortable feeling. I have tried ginger tea, candy, trying to eat mini meals throughout the day, trying to stay hydrated. Nothing seams to be working, I'm crying all day. How can I get through this!

Answer:
We know that women carrying twins suffer more from NVP than women carrying a single baby, so your symptoms are not suprising. However there is safe and effective medication that you can take. You may want to call our toll free NVP line (1800 436-8477) for information regarding what you can take.
