Yes, but, sadly, I lost that one at 12 wks.

I had HG with my first two, but not this pregnancy. I was nauseous for two weeks, but now I am better.

My first HG pregnancy was very mild, my second HG pregnancy was enough that I never wanted to do that again! This is my third HG pregnancy and although I had a couple really bad weeks, I'm willing to try for a fourth...

The Zofran wasn't working great for me (8mg 3x/day) so I tried it in combination with the phenergan but the drowsiness is insane, I can't keep my eyes open for more than a few minutes. UGH. I would love to have a childcare option while I am feeling so sick,I feel guilty that I turn on cartoons,set them up with snacks and drinks then go back into my world of sickness, it doesn't seem fair for them

I know the feeling. My kids did ok, I know that, but I felt like such a lousy bad mom.

Anyone have "normal" pg's then end up with HG on a later one? This is pg #4 for me, with #1 I had quite a bit of m/s but it was over by 9-10wks; very little with #2 and none NONE with twins #3&4; but this pg hg

I'm 14 weeks and have been in 2x since last Friday for fluids. I'm on zofran 8mg and phenergan suppositories : alternating every 4 hours and ns is still kicking my butt. Thankfully the vomitting is down to "just" 3-4x/day mostly......

I just went in yesterday for fluids, 2 bags, and I'm starting to feel dehydrated again already I was really dehydrated yesterday though, so bad that they had to run the iv through a butterfly needle so maybe I needed more than 2 bags of fluids? I dunno

I'm down about 25 pounds from my pre-preg weight. My hair is coming out in chunks, I'm so tired all the time, and cranky, dh is all but fed up with it. I break down in tears regularry lately because I feel like its going to kill me.

How do you get through this? How do you not resent the baby or get angry at your body?

My mom did. Of 5 pregnancies, her 4th and 5th were extreme NV/HG. No dx, but based on her descriptions, I would lean toward it having been HG. My grandma had 8 kids and her 7th was HG.

The only way I got through it this last time was with my DH's loving support. If it hadn't been for him...... I really don't know what I would have done. I'm still weak as a kitten 4 1/2 months after baby was born.

Mine was SO helpful. He did EVERYTHING!!!

I didn't brush my teeth much during my pregnancy-I know it's gross, but I would throw up no matter when I tried to do it. It took me a year after birth to get to where I could brush them without majorly gagging.

I was on Phenergan, and tried cutting the dose so that I could function. It didn't make the sickness go away, but I could sometimes keep food down. I hated that I used this during most of my pregnancy, but after a threat to go to the hospital for fluids, I gave in.

Whoever mentioned the prenatals that taste like a fruit smoothie-bless you! I will for sure be looking for those next time.

And to the question about financial issue due to pregnancy, I sort of had/have this. I thought I would be able to continue my online classes while pregnant, but couldn't. I had to take a year off total for pregnancy and baby (mostly pregnancy). Now I am trying to hold off on getting pg again until after school is finished because I fear that with a dd and the possibility of another hg pg, I would have to stop again. This puts my working and earning some income for the family even further out.

Happy to have stumbled upon this group. I feel like I'm surrounded by people who just don't understand what it's like to puke and feel so ill 24/7. My husband is a great help but never having thrown up more tha 2x iin his life he doesn't get it and my mom is the same way. This usually last for me until about 22 weeks and I'm at the beginning so I've got about 4 months of this ahead of me. I'm serioiusly so miserable and resentful and I just don't know how I'm going to get through this. And to think I wanted all this . . . .well, iIwanted a baby i didn't want this. . . .

zofran is no really doing much to help me, does it help most of you?
post #152 of 630
All the Zofran does for me is keep the food down. Sometimes not even that if I wait too late to take it. No relief for the nausea. Or the fatigue.

How does everyone else manage this and maintain a civil relationship with their SO? I am so ANGRY with DH right now...he is not sympathetic at all. And he claims that having a weak stomach means he's excused from helping me (bringing cool washcloths, etc.) I suppose he's just trying to hold things together here (we have a 3 y.o. daughter, a dog, and a cat, so lots of responsibilities; we just moved, etc., etc.) but it really comes off as callous. Help, please, someone who's BTDT?

I think that is seriously unacceptable. Your partner should help you when you are sick.

My partner helps out even more than usual, deals with diaper laundry, gets me whatever I think I can stomach at the moment, cleans up my puke if I don't make it to the bathroom, etc.

I just had a bunch of blood work done today to check for pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes. I'm concerned that the results might be affected by my hyperemesis. Did any of you have blood work for HG?
post #155 of 630
Nope. I decline GD testing,a nd my bp is always good so I have never had any pre- e concerns.

I can relate, my husband is being a jerk about all of this, making rude remarks about how the house is a mess and the dishes aren't getting and it makes me want to scream. I try to ignore it, but it makes me feel bad that he can't even understand how sick I feel all the time or that he doesn't care.
post #157 of 630
I did zofran 3x a day for months and than finally had an acupuncture treatment and it went away!
post #158 of 630
the zofran alone didn't help me much. I'm taking zofran and phenergan now, alternating every 4 hours; sucks and I'm still having issues

I'm dh issues too. He's fed up with me being sick : yeah like I'm not. We got in a big fight last night because get this, he got me dinner and I didn't eat it : I tried, it was something I like and it sounded good but once I starting chewing.......
He's tired of having to do everything around the house (he works pt and I'm gone 12hrs a day!!!). He's tired of changing all the poo diapers. He's tired of having to bring me my meds at night; when he's up anyway : He's tired of sleeping on the couch, which he choose to sleep on because my getting up to pee/puke/deal with nausea was waking him up.
I was so and ended up spending the night alone in the bedroom

I had normal bloodwork through both of my HG pregnancies.
post #160 of 630
I did develop pre-e in the last days of my first pregnancy and had high blood pressure throughout the whole thing. For the next one everything was fine and I had no problems with the gd screening except keeping that s*** down soe they could draw blood. I refused testing in my last pregnancy.

My dh did what he could to help me. I was a sahm until my youngest was born so I didn't have to worry about functioning at work. But, dh worked two jobs (military and fast food) so he often wasn't home. I did what I could but he never made me feel guilty like I should be doing more. He knew that once I became pregnant I was going to be able to do only the bare minimum.
