    BaronessM- I'm actually struggling today. If I don't keep any fluids down tomorrow then that will be 3 days with little to no fluids in a row and I'll take myself back to hospital. I'm really really struggling today. I think the emotional battle is just as hard as the physical battle! Today i Can't stop crying and feeling so sad then crying more cuz I know that the tears I'm loosing just means I'm loosing more fluids!

    I think it's hard too, because I lost my twins (6 years ago) and since then I've desperatly wanted to be pregnant again and have a baby... but now that I have it, I'm just sad and sick and hating the journey. This makes me feel so unworthy of my privilege of being pregnant. And I know that it's just the HG that is bringing me down but I hate that I can't control it

    I had some nausea around conception/implantation so FX it's a BFP for you in a few days! And an even bigger FX that HG does not hit! Xx

    Wheels- I hope you are doing ok today xx

    Yes, some part of me wants another bub (I'm 38, so not much time!), another part of me dreads the sickness and thinks maybe this is not the right time...

    Almai ~ please go for fluids tom if you can't drink anything again. Try as many different fluids as you can till you find something you can keep down.

    So sorry to hear about your twins. You have been through so much.

    Sending love and strength (and stomach-power!) to you.

    I did go to hospital yesterday. They tested my urine for keytones which they always do.. This time was the worst i've had so far
    I had fluids and meds and went home feeling better. Came home, had some toast and went to sleep on DP's lap.
    Feeling ok today (only vomited 3 times today) and much less reflux than the last few days.
    Went to the shops today and got a cot, mattress, change table, rug and curtains for the nursery. Cheered me up a little but has drained me!!!

    Hope everyone else is doing ok xx

    Yay, Almai! Retail therapy . Sorry to hear your ketones so bad, but glad you are feeling better. I would consider only 3 chucks a positive triumph! And you actually ATE! Fab.

    Hope the 'feeling better' lasts. xx

    Hi Everyone,

    even though I'm not glad you all have HG I am glad I've found somewhere that writes about it.

    i just read Almais post from last week prior to hospital and that's exactly how I'm feeling, not worthy to be pregnant. I just feel like such a failure after so many years I can't even handle it. I haven't felt attached to my baby or anything and its just so not like me I don't think I will be able to do this again but hopefully I feel different after meeting this little one.

    im 11 weeks pregnant today and have been suffering since week 5... I don't know how much more I can take.

    currently I'm taking zofran (odansetron) wafers and they seem to alleviate some of the throwing up when not eating or drinking however as soon as I smell food, and i eat or drink it comes up uncontrollably.

    i find comfort in reading it usually only lasts until week 16. I just pray I'm one of these lucky ones.

    its comforting to know I'm not alone.

    Love and strength to all you suffering mums

    Gosh I am over this HG. Back in hospital for the 7th time and 18 weeks tomorrow. What makes it even better is I apparently have gastro on top of HG. Talk about hell!

    Hg is hell.
    It's a daily battle.
    Not just physically, but mentally aswell.
    Unfortunately I'm still battling away at 27+2w BUT many feel better come 16-20w so have hope! (I had reduced vomiting from 19-22w)

    I wouldn't have survived this far if it weren't for the lovely ladies in the HG facebook support group. If you are not in the Facebook group- pm me your details and I can get you added.
    It saves my sanity on my low days and iv learnt so much from other sufferers. Even just knowing that i am not alone is a huge comfort for me

    Stay strong you wonderful mummys. Xx

    Sounds like HG to me.
    There are many different medications you can try (which are category A so 'safe' in pregnancy)
    An over the counter one is Restivit. It's a sleeping tablet but is the number 1 recommended tablet to take for nausea in HG sufferers (and was recently approved by the American AMA)
    You start with small doses so your not too zonked...
    Many women notice lessened or controlled vomiting or nausea when taking this.
    Taking regular meds, not just on your worse days can help heaps too as you build up a level in your blood and sustain it rather than having highs and lows.
    Talk to your dr 1st though to make sure it's all ok for you but fight for something more than just ginger and crackers!

    Big hugs to you. Xx

    I have a friend who has just been admitted to hospital for the third time with HG. She is only 12 weeks and I am really worried for her. I don't know what else to do to help her. She has an 18month old son who is currently with me. I am more worried for her psychologically. Any ideas or suggestions?
    Thank you.
