Deja Vu

Well, things have taken a turn for the worse this week. I’m 36 weeks now and I’m back to throwing up once or twice a week. I’m having a lot of trouble eating and digesting food again. I haven’t showered all week because of the nausea and lack of energy. My own body odor is starting to trigger nausea! I checked my weight today and was alarmed to see I lost 6 pounds in a matter of a couple weeks. I started to panic. I know how HG can spiral out of control very quickly. It feels like I’m back to battling HG in my first trimester…I’m anxious that if things keep going the way they are, I will end up dehydrated and will have to get IV fluids again. I called my OB and she put in a referral for home health care. She said it would take a few days for them to call me so if things continue to get worse, I can get the Zofran pump and home IV treatment again. But if I am doing okay, my OB said I could just cancel the order. At this rate, I may take up my OB’s offer to induce me at 39 weeks! Please keep me and baby in your thoughts and prayers.

  1. I am sorry your eating is causing you turmoil. Xmas is a time I love because I eat and bake things I don’t make during the year…. except for now. I was an anorexic in Middle School.
    Thankfully, I can enjoy food but with limits as I am a diabetic. I hope tomorrow is better.

    • Hi Diana,
      Thank you so much for keeping me & baby in your prayers. You have been such a blessing to me. I am really hoping that things get better and that I don’t keep losing weight.

  2. I’m 9 weeks pregnant with my second child and dealing with hypermesis. It’s beyond anything. I’m currently having at home IV treatments though my veins aren’t cooperating because I’m so dehydrated. My oldest is 3 and I’m having to also let go of him while feeling guilty and depressed and having hard time continuing. You however encourage me to keep pressing on. Thank you

    • Hi Cassandra,
      Reading your comments almost made me tear up! Thank you so, so much for taking the time to reach out to me. Nine weeks is one of the worst times for HG – my heart completely goes out to you! I am glad that you are getting in-home IV treatment but sorry to hear about your veins. If all else fails, you can always request a PICC line. I am so sorry that you are having such a hard time right now, especially with your son. I know so well those feelings of depression and guilt. As much as I complain about how I’m feeling now, it is nothing compared to my first and second trimester. It will get better – I promise! I will be praying for you and your baby and your son. I have been praying for my blog to encourage even one mother going through HG so you are an answer to my prayers! Please take care of yourself and your baby.

    • Thank you for thinking of us M. Marzipan! The past couple days have been better – no vomiting and no more weight loss which I am so relieved about. Hopefully it stays like this till I deliver!

  3. I know it’s been a while since you posted just wanted to let you know your story was so helpful. Someone went throughout exactly what I am going through and understands! I’m in week six second g pregnancy this one harder than ever .

    • Hi Bee,
      Thank you so much for taking the time to post! My heart goes out to you. The first trimester is so, so hard for an HG pregnancy. That’s an understatement! I’m so sorry that you are suffering a second time. I hope that you are getting quality medical care and also lots of support in the home – especially help with your little one. Praying for you!
