    Hello Girls,

    Well this is my second pregnancy and my second time with Hyperemesis.
    I am now 16 1/2 weeks and really starting to struggle. At my last ob appointment we discussed the zofran pump after 20 weeks and i'm allowed to come to labor ward for fluids instead of emergency. I hated taking DS to emergency!
    I had high hopes for this pregnancy- Had a much better diet, loads of water etc when I got pregnant and in fact I didn't get sick until 5 weeks! With DS I got sick before I even knew I was pregnant!

    I'm currently on Zofran 8mg x 3 a day but it is costing a ridiculous amount. The cheapest I can get it where we live is $85 so I get my mum to post it up and it's only $50 crazy how the prices vary!

    I told DH I don't want to have any more children. I know in my heart I want more I would love more but my body just hates being pregnant!

    DS1 is only 10 months old and funnily enough I am VERY grateful for this. He is easily occupied and is generally ok with being home most days.

    Hope it starts to ease for you all soon xx

    Hi Akeastall, good luck ~ at least this time around you have some supports in place. It is far better being able to go to Labour instead of ER for IV fluids.

    Please tell us more about the Zofran pump! Sounds intruiging, and hopefully for you it may end up cheaper. That's crap that it's so expensive for meds that, for people with HG, are so necessary and could even be life (and sanity) saving.

    You just reminded me that the hurl-upon-waking was what twigged me to do a pg test, too.

    It IS lucky your little one is only 10mo at mo ~ I can't imagine trying to dash about after my 16mo with HG. I'd love another bub in my heart of hearts, too, but wonder how I'd cope. At least I still have an (almost bubby/almost toddler) amazing little boy to enjoy. Incredible how we can overlook the agony and insanity-spurning nausea enough to want another!

    The best of luck to you; may the worst of your nausea and sickness be but a mere memory when you are holding another happy, beautiful and thriving bub in your arms.

    Cheers, BaronessM.

    I haven't had the blood specs before but I used to feel like a was tearing my stomach. Make sure you place your hand on your stomach (flat under your ribs) when you do be sick. I found this helped to not put so much pressure on your insides when being so forcefully sick. You've possibly torn the lining or something (my guess not an informed opinion) from the force- perhaps mention it to Gp just to b sure xx

    I get blood from time to time. Especially with this pregnancy but when I had it with ds I had an endoscopy and everything was fine it's just increased blood flow + excessive vomiting. But definitely speak to your doctor because it could be something else.
    I get really violent vomits and end up going purple it sucks! Ds cries when I vomit but I just try to avoid being around him when I'm not feeling good.

    Blood flecks in vomit is indeed likely to be from ruptured eosophageal blood vessels, and in small quantities is nothing to worry about (other than being a bit of a shock, the actual vomitting and nausea with HG is usually more shocking!). General fluid loss in the body is more of a concern. Any bright red blood is from high up the throat, usually. If you suffer internal bleeding further down, the blood tends to turn a brownish colour before irritating the stomach lining, and often causing vomitting from that irritation.

    If you are at all worried, though, ask your doctor. It is usually caused by the force/frequency of vomitting and the stomach acid burning the throat.

    This is one of my 'special subjects' ~ being a sword-swallower...

    Hi ladies I've posted previously when I was ttc - well now I'm 4 weeks pregnant tomorrow :-) I'm starting to get nervous- I made it to 5 weeks last time before sickness kicked in. I'm feeling ok at the minute. 1 week left of eating. Xxx

    I am reaching the point where I am becoming very depressed and over vomiting all day every day. If I lay in bed all day I don't vomit so much but with 2 kids to chase after, kindy drop off and pick up etc.

    I can't believe is turning into hg again for me. I had convinced myself that this time would be different.
