I'm glad you guys made this thread:wink:. I have suffered with Hypermesis in both of my pregnancies. I get to watch everyone have the luxury of being able to eat whatever they want and I have to walk on egg shells.lol
To all the ladies i had it with my son 8 months ago, i had it from 6weeks to 9 months NO KIDDING i had morning, day, night sickness, I vomited every 5 minutes no joke it never ended i hated my pregnancy. I ate crackers and everything nothing worked. I was hospitalized 3 times for Hyperemisis and had iv fluids and had my diet watched and NOTHING HELPED. So i had to suffer my whole pregnancy!! Good Luck ladies with ur pregnancies

did the thought of anything sweet and sugary make you guys puke too? I ate nothing sweet at all, even still to this day i cant handle much sugar. I used to eat a 1/2 gallon of ice cream in a week no problem pre-preg. and now it takes me like a month or longer and thats if i eat it at all. I was a major chocaholic before and now i really only eat it when im PMS'ing haha.
I remember telling my ultrasound tech that I was going to get a milkshake and tator tots because I was so hungry (and knew to eat what I craved) and she started ripping into me saying "WHY would you eat like that? That is NOT healthy." I just shut up.
I do try to eat healthy...when I'm not pregnant. :) Dr. Peppers always settled my stomach but when #3 came...I couldn't even try to drink it, or I would get sick. It took about a year before I drank them again.

That was a lot of reading, lol..
I have had hyperemesis two times and currently I would have it but I took a different option that many won't discuss.
Hyperemesis effected my life greatly. I had it from 6 weeks with my son until the day I delivered. I honestly don't know how I survived those 8 months!! I was literally in the hospital for 3/4 of my pregnancy. At three months I went on a PICC line, on TPN and IV fluids, plus vitamins. After about 2 1/2 - 3 months I started having excrutiating, drop-to-your-knees pain under my chest in my upper abdomen. I knew it wasn't the baby. I went to the ER and had blood drawn and was told that my pancreatic enzymes were through the roof and if I didn't come in when I did I could have died as well as my son. SO the TPN had given me pancreatitis, I couldn't even suck on ice chips for 10 days to let my enzymes come down. The pancreatitis also caused gall stones so that was painful for the rest of my pregnancy, because they didn't want to take out my gall bladder while I was pregnant. So on top of having hyperemesis, which was the original problem, I had bad pain too. They tried everything for me! Compazine, Tygan, Phenergan, Raglan (DON'T TAKE IT!!), Benedryl, Zofran, etc. Plus pain killers. None of the nausea meds helped. Zofran worked for a short time but my body got immune to it and it quit working. Eventually (at about 8 months when I was still in and out of the ER) they put me on something called Kytril which is stronger than Zofran. It was amazing. It let me get through the last month eating perfectly with no problems at all. It is a rare medication though, for cancer patients going through chemo.
The second time I had hyperemesis I had to make a decision that changed my life forever..I had to have an abortion. I was sicker than I was before and not in the position at all to deal with hyperemesis. It was my only option. I regret it to this day, but if I didn't make that decision, I might not be here today and my son might not have his mommy.
Now I am 12 weeks pregnant again (I was on the IUD waiting to schedule a Tubal when I got pregnant! Lucky me) and for one reason and one reason only I do not have hyperemesis -- medical marijuana.
<3 Good luck with all of your pregnancies!
