Most pregnant women feel sick or vomit during early pregnancy. In most cases it is mild and does not need treatment. In more severe cases, an anti-sickness medicine is sometimes used, and occasionally you need a fluid "drip" in hospital for dehydration.
Many pregnant women feel sick or vomit during early pregnancy. In most cases it is mild and does not need any specific treatment. In more severe cases, an anti-sickness medicine is sometimes used. Low body fluid (dehydration) is a complication in severe cases. See a doctor if you suspect that you are becoming dehydrated.
Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, also known as morning sickness, is very common in early pregnancy. It's unpleasant but it doesn’t put your baby at any increased risk, and usually clears up between weeks 12 and 14 of pregnancy. Watch the video about how to cope with morning sickness.
