    I definitely think that is beyond the realm of normal. I never got MS aside from mild nausea but from what others have describe yours sounds more like HG than stock standard MS.

    I have a doctors appointment this afternoon. I don't feel like this can be especially normal, because I've known women who have managed to continue working etc during their pregnancies and I just don't see how that's possible when you're vomiting every half an hour that you're awake.

    I don't think my DH is being deliberately insensitive - this is just new to both of us so we have no idea what to expect. I think maybe downplaying my symptoms might make him feel like there's nothing to be worried about, if that makes sense.

    I don't know if this is related, but two days ago I noticed a swollen pea sized lump in my neck as well, that I think might be a lymph node. For the people who had severe morning sickness, did you have swollen lymph nodes also? I am going to ask the doctor about it today, but thought I'd just ask here as well in the meantime.

    I'm completely miserable and I just want to feel half decent again.
    I didn't have any swollen lymph nodes but definitely worth checking. The dehydration sent a whole lot of things a bit haywire in my body - thyroid, glucose levels, blood pressure. It's horrendous so sending big hugs your way. I hope your doctor is supportive.

    Thanks everyone. My doctor has prescribed me Maxolon and Zofran and said to try the Maxolon first, and if it doesn't help go to the Zofran.

    She was so lovely and understanding. I'm very lucky.

    It definitely sounds like you have hyperemesis as normal morning sickness is certainly not vomiting 17+ times a day.

    I have hypermesis (still at 23 weeks), but haven't had lymph node problems, so I'd definitely see your OB about that.

    Try and get the 8mg Zofran if the 4mg isn't working. Go to chemist warehouse or amcal and you will only pay around $30 for the script for substitute, instead of $70 odd dollars. That's if Maxalon doesn't work of course!

    All the best and I hope things improve for you with medication

    oh love, that's not anywhere near normal in my experience. I had horrible nausea and dizziness and felt awful. What you are describing sounds 100 times worse. I hope the medication helps.

    Also wanted to wish you all the very best. I still remember exactly where I was when I read your post a few years back about the end of your TTC journey. To see you bob up again with a pregnancy is just lovely. xx

    My MS was always worse when I was tired (it was no where near as severe as yours), try having a couple of naps a day and see if it helps you
