sometimes you can have whats call hyperemis gravidarum which basically means excessive sickness in pregnancy.
I've only gained 6 lbs this pregnancy in the past 5 months. Some days I will hardly eat anything, and will vomit most of what I eat! Yesterday all I ate was the roast beef from an Arby's sandwich (not the bread) and got majorly sick, then later I had some bread and cheese (maybe 1 piece of each) and got super sick. My stomach is churning all day long! I can usually keep down fluids OK but sometimes not even those. Does the baby just pull what it needs from the mother stores?
I have put on 5kg since the beginning of my pregnancy - that's a third of the total I'm meant to put on in total! I'm averaging between 0.5kg - 1.0kg a week and those averages scare me. I'm not eating really badly but I am too sick to exercise at the moment :( I'd love to hear any thoughts / stories / suggestions from anyone out there.
41:41: I am considering getting pregnant again (I have a 6-year-old daughter), but I can't seem to find any information on this condition. When I became pregnant with my daughter, I had hyperemesis gravidarium for the duration of my entire pregnancy (from about 6 weeks on through delivery). I lost 13 pounds in my first trimester, had ketones in my urine, was severely dehydrated and on IV's, etc.
11:58: Please read the information on this site about the use of corticosteroids to treat/prevent hyperemesis. Prednisone is known to be safe during pregnancy. In fact, because it does not pass through the placenta well, the baby receives less than 1/30 of the mother's dose. My current obestetrician has been using prednisone (or i.v. solu-medrol) to treat all of his hyperemesis patients who failed to respond to other antiemetics. HE HAS HAD A 100% SUCCESS RATE!
When I became pregnant with my daughter, I had hyperemesis gravidarium for the duration of my entire pregnancy (from about 6 weeks on through delivery). I lost 13 pounds in my first trimester, had ketones in my urine, was severely dehydrated and on IV's, etc. Also, during the last month of my pregnancy, I developed preeclampsia and had to have an induced delivery. Naturally, I'm kind of gun-shy about going through all that again!
41:41: I am 22 1/2 weeks pregnant. For me, every day counts because I have been so sick. I was in the hospital 5 times and missed 9 weeks of work. I can tell you that I tried Reglan and Phenergan and they didn't help at all -- actually seemed to make me feel worse. Zofran has helped me a ton, but it took me a long time to find a doctor who would prescribe it and support me in taking it. I am now back at work and handling things better.
32:05: I, too, have a history of hyperemesis gravidarum. Unlike you, though, I was unable to "tough it out." I terminated my first pregnancy due to the severity of my hyperemesis. During the fourth week of my second pregnancy, I was put on corticosteroids (prednisone) to treat Crohn's Disease. Interestingly, I never developed hyperemesis during my second pregnancy and I delivered a healthy baby (prednisone is known to be safe during pregnancy).
45:34: :Hi, hey so happy to have found this site, I have looked before but have never found anything like it. I too had hyperemesis gravidarum, my sister also had this. I was about 6 weeks pregnant when I started getting ill, and was very ill until about the 6th month. I lost 20 pounds, and by the fourth month I only weighd 100 pounds. I tried every antiammetic out there. Incuding zofran taken interveinisly. Nothing worked.

26:07: I too am very happy to have found some information, and some people who can sympathise with me. I am 17 weeks pregnant, and morning sickness with my son, but this pregnancy is definate hyperemesis. I began getting sick around 8 weeks, and continue to be ill now. I hope it ends soon! I have been on perentral nutrition for about a month now, and taking Zofran intraveniously as well.
54:40: HI, good luck to you, glad to hear that you are starting to feel better, hope it lasts. When I took Zofran it worked for about a week or two then stopped working. (but it never was a miricle cure). I have heard that some people stoped being sick by the 20th week, so I hope that that is you. Good luck and god bless!.

You may have hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that causes excessive nausea and vomiting during early stages of pregnancy. There are other medications that are proven safer during pregnancy that are effective for nausea that your OB can prescribe for you. If your OB is aware of your issue they will be happy to address it. Every state has different regulation and it may vary from hospital to hospital. It can also depend on your OB/midwife.

For example, feeling hot, excessive sweating, emotional excitement, nervousness, vomiting or a racing heart beat may be common to both normal pregnancy as well as hyperthyroidism. However, two common symptoms exclusive to hyperthyroidism are: a very rapid heart rate above 100 beats per minute, and weight loss. If you are pregnant and are experiencing these symptoms, you should be tested for hyperthyroidism so that it can be treated in order to prevent problems with your pregnancy.
I went in sat afternoon and was admitted with possible appendicitis / eptopic pregnancy, yet pregnancy was rules out and my blood work came back positive I was kept in for observation on fluids and not able to eat or drink for 24hrs.

Your Baby's Growth and Development You are now in your second month of pregnancy and your developing baby is 3 weeks! You might just be finding out that you are pregnant and may have many concerns and questions. Some women still do not realize that they are pregnant yet.

Protein may indicate preeclampsia (a condition that develops in late pregnancy and is characterized by a sudden rise in blood pressure and excessive weight gain, with fluid retention and protein in the urine).

I have two sister, one of which had to have a hysterectomy when she was in her mid 30's and the other was told she should have one in her early 40's (but she refuses to do it). I have told all this to my doctors and don't feel like I'm getting the right answers and am getting really frustrated. I am sick of being sick! And sick of all the problems I'm having! Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

I had a metallic taste in my mouth and experienced implantation bleeding before I tested positive for pregnancy. It was weird because the implantation bleeding happened at the exact time I shoulda had my period, my periods are pretty regular. So I thought nothing of it. Then two weeks later I just had this feeling, I just knew it! I was pregnant. I was one of the fortunate ones that didnt fatigue or morning sickness! Im hoping baby number 2 is just as nice to me!
Excessive vomiting during pregnancy is called hyperemesis gravidarum. I have had it with two of my pregnancies. I have been hospitalized several times. Most of the time I cant eat or drink bc I cant even keep a sip of water down. With my twins I lost 14 lbs before I gained any of it back and I only gained 7 of it back. Medications dont always work for me but I just have learned to deal with it. Never in a million years would I think to pick up a joint and smoke it.
CONGRATS on your pregnancy!!! They do say that cramps are normal during early pregnancy (well really all pregnancy" but I was reading in "What to Expect When you are Expecting" and they said "When Not to Worry : Mild cramps and achiness or pulling sensation on one or both sides of the abdomen. This is probably caused by the stretching of ligaments that support the uterus.
I admit maternity is a beautiful thing, but how do you enjoy pregnancy with all the things it comes with like vomiting nausea headaches backaches swollen body excessive peeing insomnia etc? I'm 30 wks ftm with only 20 yrs, pregnant with a girl, and she's a big one doctor told me so and I can't stand it anymore it's too much idk maybe I'm exaggerating cuz everything is just building up.
