At 6 weeks, I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) which is severe nausea, vomiting, dehydration and weight loss
that only .5-1% of pregnant women get. I've been hospitalized 3 times for chronic dehydration, had to withdraw from my PhD courses, been off work 7 weeks and have lost 26 pounds. For the last 2 months, I have been unable to keep down foods or liquids. I now have a home care nurse daily, on IV's and a 24 hour Zofran pump to stop the vomiting.
