The Lived Experience of Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy

Purpose: The experience of going through a common phenomenon, nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, will be explored in this qualitative study. Up to 4 million pregnant women in this country may experience nausea and vomiting in pregnancy each year, with as many as 25% of these women continuing with nausea and vomiting in late pregnancy (over 20 weeks of pregnancy). Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is often considered an early indicator of pregnancy, although vomiting beyond the first trimester may be the result of more serious factors than in early pregnancy. Therefore, it seems important to know how to best care for these patients. Theoretical Framework: Orem's Theory of Self-Care will guide the general, open-ended questions for this qualitative study. Participants: A phenomenologic framework is being used to collect and interpret the narrative data describing the lived experiences of nausea and vomiting for pregnant women. Consenting 18 to 40-year old participants will be selected from populations of Midwestern women who report they are experiencing nausea and vomiting early in pregnancy. The women will be recruited from community-based, prenatal health clinics. Planned Method of Analysis: Descriptions of nausea and vomiting lived experiences will be obtained from the respondents until a point of saturation is reached. From thematic coding of verbatim recorded responses to the open-ended qualitative questions, common themes will be identified as they emerge. The verbal retrospective descriptions will be interpreted using Giorgi’s approach to determine the meaning of prenatal nausea and vomiting experiences and the need for self-care actions. Implications for Study: A need may exist for nursing actions to care for pregnant women who may be experiencing nausea or vomiting in pregnancy (a common and often overlooked phenomenon). Practitioners need to recognize and assist pregnant women in making safe lifestyle changes to achieve comfort, and to evaluate the information that they may be receiving from other sources so that pregnant women can safely manage their nausea and vomiting.
