Did you know that condition is called hyperemesis gravidarum - which I think is Latin for vomiting pregnant woman.
Anyway, it's a real condition - I had it with both my pregnancies. My first doctor and her nurses kept trying to tell me it was all in my head and continued suggestions of ginger snaps, ginger-ale, that anti-nausea liquid, motion sickness wrist bands, saltines, etc - but no matter what I was nauseous all day long, every day. If my eyes were open, I was trying not to throw up. I was miserable. My doc would not prescribe any anti-nausea Rx.
My second PG was bad too, I did research, found out what I had, & switched to a doctor who would prescribed Zofran for me (which saved me). I had a 1yr old at home and I could not afford to be in bed vomiting all day, nor could I be in bed asleep from the Rx Fenegren (sp?). Zofran saved me, but it's damn expensive!
Did/do you suffer from nausea the whole pregnancy??
