[quote:MartianPrincess:MV8yMDY5ODExXzM1NTYwNzUzXzg4RTQ2NThD] [quote:SheldonCooper:MV8yMDY5ODExXzM0ODMxMzM2X0MzNjg2RTI2] The answer to the question that people are asking; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperemesis_gravidarum Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy different from the more common nausea and vomiting known as morning sickness. Dehydration, malnutrition, and other serious complications are the result of the "unrelenting, excessive pregnancy-related nausea and/or vomiting that prevents adequate intake of food and fluids." [b]Hyperemesis is considered a rare complication of pregnancy[/b] but, because nausea and vomiting during pregnancy exist on a continuum, there is often not a good diagnosis between common morning sickness and hyperemesis. Estimates of the percentage of pregnant women afflicted range from 0.3% to 2.0% [/quote] I had HG with both pregnancies. It is HELL on earth and I don't wish it on anyone. You will wish you'd die instead of going through one more hellish day. Your entire existence becomes consumed by a horrible feeling of nausea 24/7 (only relief is when asleep)and actually being sick several times a day, dealing with dehydration and weakness. With my first child at first I was enjoying a normal pregnancy, but by 3 months it progressed into HG; I lost a total of 8 lbs with this pregnancy and gave birth at 38 weeks to a healthy (but tiny) baby girl who had no medical problems and is still very healthy. With my 2nd pregnancy, I was sick before I even knew I was pregnant, so I recognized the unrelenting nausea in a second flat. I love my son but the pregnancy was one of the darkest times in my life and I don't think I could survive another. I vomited 4-20 times per day, was not able to eat a single bite of anything even semi solid (digestion totally slows), could not drink water, or any other liquids (except for mango juice once in a while, and only 2-3 drops at a time) and was on Zofran and phenergan the entire time until the day of delivery. I was completely isolated, no one was able to understand how just SHITTY I felt. I felt violently nauseous upon waking up in the morning and all throughout the day... a typical day for me was spent attempting to eat a bite and keep it down (rarely happened). Driving made me nauseous, watching TV or computer screens too, basically anything and everything except for sitting or lying completely still, even speaking made me nauseous. I was hospitalized every couple of days for IV treatment since I was always dehydrated and weak. Finally at 36 weeks my son was born, prematurely but healthy (and 4 lbs!). I had lost a total of 18 lbs. My health never quite recovered from it. If TBTB could weaponize any one condition to purely torture their enemies, HG would be ideal to drive someone mad or to suicide.
