Hi ladies, so I posted on here before about how I have some nasty nasty morning sickness, I have tried everything that was suggested to me on here and nothing worked so I decided to go to the doc and talk to them, they gave me some medication to make the nausea go away but after 2 days it was not working anymore so I went back in. When I went in the doc stopped in his tracks and before he even said hi he walked out walked back in and said go to the ER now. When I got there they rushed me back put in an IV pumped 3 different bags of meds in me then put 3 bags of fluids in me. I was there for HOURS. Well come to find out I had been blacking out and not realizing it, I lost over 50lbs in 2 wks I'm as white as a ghost and I can never eat because I puke right away. I'm 8w3d my morning sickness started at 4w4d they said it was not normal for it to start so soon. Then they told me I have some rare complication called Hyperemesis gravidarum that is going to continue to make me sick for awhile. They said it was odd because they have not seen a pg women with this in yrs. They gave me another medication to take in hopes it will Work but yet again after 3 days it stopped working. I spend about 50% to 55% of my days "hugging the potty" (that's what the kids have officially decided I spend all day doing). With this new medication they have me on I feel sick to my stomach all day and I feel hungry all the time with no vomiting but when I eat I get sick almost right away. I spend each morning in the bathroom for about an hr getting sick. There have been times I have thrown up blood because I vomit so violently. I'm so tired of feeling this way it's really starting to bring me down. I just for one day want to feel good, normal, not sick is it to much to ask? I truthfully think that the only time I don't feel like this is when I'm in a deep sleep.


I was wondering if anyone else has ever gone through this or if it really is just me.


Ok for those of you who have had this nasty thing has anyone had end a pregnancy? How sever was yours?

They want me to go see a doc on Friday to talk about my options they said every time they see me I look worse and the test keep coming back bad I guess. The specialist they are sending me to deals with life threatening emergencies. Is this really a life threatening emergency? Please I need to know that ending my pregnancy is not the only way? I don't want to end it I want my baby so bad and this is the last baby medically I can have (was not suppose to be pregnant but I am and I want to keep it)

That's sounds about right but I'm to lazy to get out of bed and check. I have never heard of nor had anything like this ever. I just want it gone ):

Oh wow, I am really sorry you are so sick. Have they talked about hospitalizing you to keep you on IV meds for the nausea? It sounds to me like that might be a good option at this point so you can get re-hydrated and get some food in you. Hang in there! I hope they find meds that work for you.

HG is severe, difficult to treat morning sickness that can sometimes last the entire pregnancy. It causes severe dehydration and that can lead to blackouts, weight loss, etc. It's not overly common, but it's something you hear about more and more as time goes on. 

We have a mama here on CM who had it all of her pregnancies (3 or 4 kids?) the entire 9 months. She was on IVs off and on frequently. But.. she has beautiful, healthy, intelligent children! I just wanted you to know that it does get better, even if you are horribly sick right now. Hugs to you!!

It's actually somewhat common. I'm surprised they said that. My friend had it to the point where she had to take sleeping pills constantly so she could stop throwing up. She basically just had to sleep all the time.

Oh man. I'm sorry. Are there any family or friends who could help you out? Or could your husband take family medical leave for a while?
