Hi there... I am a fortunate future mommy of our very first little blessin!!.However, I am also the unfortunate recipient of the Hyperemesis disease. I have been so so sick since week 5...The nausea/dry heaving/vomiting is HORRIFIC..even with drug assistance..I do not eat- I cannot drink- sleeping is a luxury at night..since my latest and greatest activityduring the day is SLEEP...i've already had a succession of visits to the ER (iv fluids & sent home)..week after overnight in hospital (again, iv fluids & sent home).. and 3 days after that admitted to hospital for a week long stay for a crazy amount of fluids-vitamins-drugs & monitoring :-( I was so dehydrated from being so sick for so long my kidneys were shutting down....ugh..I've even had to quit my job b/c the amount of time taken off...& I'm still not better...Needless to say it has been a terribly rough road!
Just wondering if anyone else out there is suffering (and I do not use that term lightly) with the same disease..maybe someone has some suggestion for day to day living with this monster?? Is there an end in sight??? I just can't get better!!
Please tell me there is someone else out there in "Bump" land that can relate??
Thanks for listening all...& best of luck to all the other mommies!!
I hope you see this - get a zofran pump ASAP. It will be a lifesaver for you!!!! O had it with both pregnancies.
