NVP Symptoms and Effects
How can I deal with a continuous sickness? I have no straight. I feel so bad. Sometimes I remenber an article I read that said that sickness is due to a not accepted pregnancy. Please answer my doubt.
Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy is not caused by an unaccepted pregnancy. It is so common that 50 to 80 percent of all pregnant women experience these symptoms, mostly in their first trimester.
