Brief Answer: hold on Detailed Answer: Hi Anamita, Morning sickness is common in early pregnancy. It will get much better afer you cross the first trimester. If you can manage another few weeks, you should feel better and wont have to leave work. Take tab doxinate 2 tabs at bedtime and two tabs mid day for a few days and see how you feel. Weak tea, plain crackers and biscuits will help in the morning .

Brief Answer: depends on you Detailed Answer: There should not be any problem if you can handle it . Since the morning sickness is reduced you will feel better . You are weak now since you can't eat and keep anything down . I suggest you rest till your morning sickness subsides then see how you feel . Start taking the tablet i mentioned . But its better to rest for few mins and sit in betweeen those 10 hrs .
