Hi, I survived HG twice and won't be doing it again. I never had to have a PICC line or extended hospital stays, but I seriously considered terminating because of it
It is even documented in the OB's report on my medical files--I feel pretty bad about that. I got a lot of help from the HER forums but can't even click on the site now because of the feelings it brings back.
My HG hit on the flight back from Japan--I hope I will be able to ride a plane in November without hyperventilating or vomiting even though I am 8 weeks PP now (I still have some zofran left so I will be taking that just in case). Everytime I open the closet the smell of our suitcases makes me ill, and every so often I will get a whiff of the smell of our trip to Japan and feel transported back. Is this PTSD? How long before it gets better? People just don't understand how awful it was to lose 20 pounds in your first tri and be unable to stop vomiting no matter what you do. My poor toddler was on her own for 3 months! Looking forward to hearing from other people who are PP.
