did you have Hyperemesis gravidarum?

I had Hyperemesis gravidarum with my first pregnancy from about 4 weeks until 37 weeks. I spent many weeks in the hospital and had to also have a PICC Line and home IV's the whole time, in addition to this I had to have a Phenergan pump attached to the PICC line 24/7. I also took Zofran on top of that. I could barely eat and was basicly bed ridden the whole time, in the end had lost about 40lbs and about 50% of my muscle mass. It was awful but in the end I had a wonderful little girl. About 6 months after she was born I had my gallbladder removed due to large gallstones. I am wondering if there is any one else that went through something like this and had another baby afterwards? Was the pregnancy better, the same, or worse? We are talking about haveing another child (which I want dearly) but at the same time I am terrified of being sick again.

 

EDIT!!!!!!  I am sorry my mistake. It was a reglan pump not phenergan

I know of a woman here on CM who has had HG for all four of her pregnancies.

I had it a little easier than you, but not much. 33 weeks now and I'm tapering off, finally feeling pretty good for a couple weeks. I was wondering the same thing, since this is my first pregnancy.

I am glad you are starting to feel alittle better. The last week of my pregnancy was great! I know it's hard and alot of people do not understand what we go thru with this and it can be stressful. But in my case, after it was all said and done I had the most wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Weird i know but I did.

I didnt have it nearly as bad as you  but I had it both pregnancies.  This one is a lot better b/c I only get sick once in a while now (24wks).  I hope things are better for you with the next pregnancy.

I had it from the time the pregnancy test was positive till about 16 weeks, and it was pretty bad. I threw up morning, noon, and night. At one point, I was even hospitalized for a short stay. I had morning sickness with my second from bfp to 3 months, but it wasn't as bad. I do remember puking almost every morning. I would wake up and go straight to the bathroom. With my youngest I had it from 7 weeks and only occured for a couple months or so. I am praying that I get it soon with this one. It puts my mind at ease. I welcome throwing up and anything else pregnancy related. Isn't it crazy how some of us want to throw up?

I had it with my daughter. I was hopitalized for dehydration and had to take Zofran. After that I was okay. My second pregnancy I had it again. I tried to explain to my doctor and the doctors in the ER that what I felt and had wasn't normal but they treated me horribly. Like I was a weak person, a baby with no tolerance for pain until they tried to pull blood and found that they couldn't get a vein. They tried to get a vein 18 times before they called in a so called "specialist" who had to go at it 8 more until they finally got it. They perscribed Zofran again and for a few days I felt better but after a week Zofran wasn't cutting it. My body was rejecting everything I put into it again. I went back to the ER only to get another perscription and sent home. Long story short, in the end it was too late. My baby passed away at 15 weeks. My advice is to always trust yourself and find good doctors that will listen. Maybe if someone had listened to me instead of treating me like a basket case my son would be here ready to celebrate his 2nd birthday in 2 weeks.

I am so sorry that happened to you. I hope that you sharring this will help any other women going through this. Having a great OBGYN is very important. Women need to know that if you are not happy with your doctor then please look for one that will listen to you. It is ok to change doctors at any point for whatever reasons you may have for doing so.
