I had HG with my second. I have 4 now, which, considering how I puked every single day with my second, is amazing that I chose to do it again, twice! ACK! I must be nuts! LOL.
I went through a long period of not even LIKING my in utero child because of being sick every day. I went to the hospital when I had the slightest feeling of labor, since I wanted her OUT OUT OUT.
I found that the differences between my second and third pregnancies were that with the second I was out of shape, physically, I ate poorly and had no concept of nutritive pallatives that would help me, like ginger, papaya, mint, etc.
With my third, I ate much better, exercized 6 days a week for at least 45 minutes a day, and enjoyed a much easier, healthier pregnancy. While I don't KNOW for sure, I suspect that a lot of my HG, for which I had to go to the hospital and get IV fluid replacements, was due to not treating my body right to begin with.
Has anyone else had this suspicion or experience? I'm
now, so I need to really make sure I exercize and eat right this time as well, especially to avoid HG as I do NOT like to puke, and I have 4 kids to take care of now! No time to puke! LOL. I am out of shape again, but I am hoping that with regular walking and yoga that I can keep my body in shape enough that pregnancy will not be too hard on me.
