|I have survived two HG pregnancies! My 1st pg, I lost 19lbs (DH thought I looked like a skeleton b/c at the lowest point I was 119lbs and he hadnt seen me that way in a while) and with my 2nd pg, I lost 25lbs. Thank goodness HG only lasted from 5 weeks until around 16 weeks for me, which seemed like an eternity!|
|P.S. I havent gotten a chance to read all through 16 pages but I was wondering, what, if anything, has helped you get through your HG pregnancies? I havent try the sea bands (well the strong ones) or acupuncture. Have these worked for any of you? TIA!!|
Anybody have any ideas about HG and long, miserable prodromal labor? I've been having wicked contractions for 5 days now, but they always do something wonky and never seem to produce much "progress." (EDD 12-15.) I never got an official diagnosis of HG, but I've been dependent on the Zofran for most of this pregnancy and completely wiped out...no energy, kid watching videos and living off fast food...you mommas know the story.
I swear, I'm not a wimp. I'm also not imagining this. I had natural childbirth with my 3 y.o. DD and experienced contractions for a couple weeks before the actual birth. They weren't pleasant, but I could still walk and talk. These have me doubled over. I *thought* I knew my body. Now I'm not so sure. Maybe it's because I've been so beaten down by all the vomiting that I'm experiencing the Braxton-Hicks as about 1,000x more painful than before.
Has anybody else experienced this?
