Thinking.../venting Platypus 1 child; Massachusetts 2494 posts3rd Mar
Im not really sure where I should put this, but long story short, I had an abortion on january 10th. I wasn't sure exactly who the father was (it was between two guys, I'm pretty sure it was my ex's). Anyways, I got diagnosed with HG with that pregnancy. I never vomited because I took so many anti emetics, but i couldn't eat or drink anything and had to go to the ER several times for dehydration... Anyways, I'm really saddened by the fact that I couldn't have this baby... It just wasn't a good situation, and I was so incredibly sick. But now I can't stop thinking about having another... Not right NOW, but maybe next year.. Im afraid that I will be as sick as I was with the last pregnancy, and slightly terrified to even get pregnant again since "losing" my potential child was so traumatizing to me.. But I really want to add to my family someday soon.

I had Hyperemesis gravidarum and was sick every single day till giving birth with my last baby it was horrible I was actually stopped by a cop who thought I was a drunk on the side of the road vomiting I was like nope just horribly pregnant lol. It did never get better until LO arrived. I am now pregnant with my second and its creepy to me some days I just don't feel pregnant I am almost 19 weeks and I have been sick a handful of times. Every pregnancy is different. So no need to worry hun :) I did things like try to stay away from anything that I knew would make me sick no car smell things etc. But HG only affects a very small amount of pregnant women so if you do get pregnant again doing things like chewing ginger saltines help. They do not get rid of the symptoms by ANY means but they do help.
