Question: Hi doctor, am in my first trimester and the rate at which I vomit is bordering me. Is my first pregnancy and I do know pregnant women vomit early in the morning but mine is different . I vomit all through the day and I have been hospitalized on various occasions because I kept vomiting until there was no strength in me. I have been absenting from work frequently and am not too happy about it. Is my vomit different from the usual?
Doctors Response : Nausea and vomiting are common symptoms in early pregnancy. It affects between 70-80% of pregnant women and more than 35% of pregnant women take excuse duties as a result of this. It’s first trimester symptoms but that does not mean it can’t extend beyond it. Despite being referred to as ‘morning sickness’ , it doesn’t mean it can’t happen any other time of the day . It is only minority of cases that the symptoms are confined to the morning. it is usually not something of serious medical issues.
