I agree with KLN777. I had to get fluids in the ER, and they also were able to give me anti-nausea medicine via the IV. That really helped, as I couldn't even get my anti-nausea pills down by that point. Breaking the cycle helped me to get back on track. Hope things go well for you.View Thread
Depending on how severe your sickness is, you may have a condition called Hyperemesis Gravidarum. From helpher.org , "HG is a debilitating and potentially life-threatening pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting with potential adverse consequences for the newborn(s)." I had HG for the first 16 weeks of my pregnancy and still feel it sometimes at 29 weeks. Please do check out the Hyperemesis Research Foundation website at helpher.org . Their site provides a lot of information, resources, and support for women with HG.View Thread
