TOTALLY. ITA. I've cried those words so many times over the past 6 mos.
Anyway, just thought I would introduce myself, as I can't remember if I have yet or if I have just been lurking
I am 28.5 weeks (been sick since 6 weeks) and have never been diagnosed with HG (nor would I diagnose myself, I am a midwife) but I definetly have ENV. After trying every natural option under the sun (god am I sick of the "have you tried...."), I've been trying the local medical options here that my OB recommended...even a pre-dehydration IV, but they haven't helped a ton-- some, but not enough.

....how am I gonna do this for another 3 months....there must be something stronger....have you heard of zofran....do you have that here in Malaysia?......So today I started zofran and unless this is just a fluke and I'll be back to retching tomorrow, I feel great. Not even a dry heave yet and it's 2pm. I am usually much better in the afternoon anyway.
