It won't affect the fetus but you could become dehydrated. See `your doctor. You may need medication.

Had the same with my 1st pregnancy. I was always in front of the toilet on my knees. It lasted 9 months. Gynae prescribed some medication that did not work. The best sollution is to eat 1 pro-vita and wait untill the nausia is over, eat another one ect. This will help you to keep them in. It also helps to take a bit of marmite with the provita. Try and monitor wat you eat as some foods might make you more nausious than other. Try and avoid milk, yogurt ect and try eating little pieces of boiled chicken with no spices. Also stay away from rich foods. Good luck. It gets better.

I was admitte 3 times during my pregnancy to hospital for excessive vomiting. I dehydrated all 3 times. My gynae prescribed Emex liquid and Vomifene tablets. Put the Emex in the Fridge. It goes down better when it's cold. Try some ginger biscuits and salticracs. Also chicken cup o soup (just the liquid). Good Luck and hope you feel better soon!
