Morning Sickness or NVP: National Survey of Nurse Practitioners Points to Underreporting of Common Condition in Pregnancy
Date:2/27/2012

en only during the first and early second trimesters, although up to 20% of women continue to have symptoms throughout pregnancy.(3)

NVP can cause significant distress in many women and can lead to feelings of anxiety about how the fetus may be affected.  Some women do not seek treatment for morning sickness because of concerns about drug therapy during pregnancy or because they don't know treatments are available.(2)  Even a less severe case of NVP can detract from the joy of pregnancy and can affect a woman's general well being.(3)

NVP Treatment Options

The treatment of NVP depends on the severity of symptoms.  Treatment options range from dietary changes and use of medications for mild to moderate NVP, to hospitalization, or total parenteral nutrition for the most severe cases of NVP.  The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends women experiencing NVP get plenty of rest, avoid bothersome smells, eat five or six small meals a day instead of three large ones, avoid spicy and fatty foods, and eat crackers before getting out of bed in the morning.  Ginger, acupuncture and acupressure, motion sickness bands, or hypnosis may also help.(4)  First-line treatment is generally vitamin B6, which can reduce symptoms of mild to moderate nausea, or B6 and doxylamine for reducing vomiting.  If B6 and doxylamine are unsuccessful, doctors may recommend antihistamines or anti-emetics, such as promethazine, metoclopramide, or ondansetron. Ginger can be added at any time during therapy. Patients who cannot hold down food or liquids may be treated with intravenous therapy.(1)
