About Me

Hi there! My name is Mimi. I underwent two HG pregnancies – the most recent one was in 2012. I’m a social worker by profession but for now a full-time mommy to two toddlers.

I decided to publish this blog to:

1) Just vent on those days I feel absolutely hopeless,

2) To be a resource to any pregnant mamas who are going through the same thing (hang in there!),

3) To educate the public about Hyperemesis Gravidarum and to clear up common misconceptions about HG,

4) To praise God “even so.” One of my favorite hymns is “It Is Well With My Soul.” And one of the most profound lines of the hymn reads “Even so, it is well with my soul.” The “even so” is certainly hard to swallow – no, impossible to swallow…but it is well with my soul because Jesus is the one who will carry me through the darkest storms of life.

  1. Hey Mimi!
    My name is Amber and I stumbled upon your blog from Miss Marzipan and I too am an HG survivor (You can read about my journey through HG here on my blog http://jroxdesigns.wordpress.com/2012/05/21/hyperemesis-gravidarum-when-its-it-more-than-just-morning-sickness/)! I just wanted to reach out and tell you thank you so much for taking the courage to write about your journey! My daughter was born last July as well and I still have a hard time even thinking back to those horrible dark times. My thoughts and prayers are with you and you stay strong through this pregnancy. Remember you are MOMMY STRONG! 🙂

    • Hi Amber,

It reminds me that I am not alone in going through this. Emma is so precious! Thank you for your words of encouragement and your prayers. It means so much to me! Take care!

    • Hi Rachel,
      Thank you so much! It’s been an honor and a privilege to share about HG on behalf of the HG community.

  2. Wow, our lives are so parallel!!! My name starts with m, I’m Asian, I have a daughter and had HG, and I’m an MFT! I’m also preggo again but so far no HG…..just wanted to say I UNDERSTAND!!!!!!!!!!!! And hang in there!

    • Wow! That is too funny! I have been out of the workplace for too long because it took me a while to figure out what MFT is! Haha! Duh…but that’s awesome! Glad to have met a fellow therapist!

  4. Dear Mimi,
    My name is Cara, and I hope I’m not imposing upon you in sending you this message. I’m not sure if you remember, but I received your Get-Well card last year through the hyperemesis support group.
    Your card was very touching; it helped substained me through my darkest period.
    I recognized your picture through your blog. Thank you for giving me your blog link in your card. I cried with relief…..finally, there was someone I could relate too.
    Thank you!

    • Hi Cara,
      I remember you very distinctly because we have the same last name! 🙂 You are not imposing at all! I’m so glad to hear from you. I’ve been wondering about you. You are so welcome! My hope and prayer is for my blog to provide support to those suffering from hyperemesis. I’m so happy to hear that it helped you during a very dark moment in your life.
