Firstly, It's not me! My 27 year old daughter is 13 weeks pregnant. She is also a type 1 diabetic, she suffers from very low low blood pressure and has previously m/c'd 6 times and has no children at home! Oh and she has hyperemisis!

My poor darling girl is so poorly and is so fed up of it and yet the one afternoon in the last 3 months she hasnt felt sick she was terrified something had again gone wrong.

This is the first pregnancy where the health care team is in place and she is getting proper intense care, we are of course still terrified.

I was never poorly with HG so have no words of wisdom, and the diabetes seems to have been at the root of all previous m/c's so she is working as hard as she can to control it tightly but its a battle along with HG.

Is there anyone else who has any experience of these things please?

I'm sorry to hear your daughter is so poorly and about her mcs. Mc can leave you scarred and the worry never leaves you...I can relate as I've had 2. I'm also a hg sufferer. I'm currently 9 weeks pregnant with hg and I also suffered from it in my second pregnancy. I remember having good days and like your daughter would freak out that I was mc again. These good days started from 10 weeks onwards but the sickness would always come back in full force....anyway by the time I got to 16 weeks, the sickness subsided and I was able to eat/drink again on a slightly less restricting diet. That pregnancy made it to 41+3 weeks and resulted in the beautiful 2 year old who is currently sleeping near me.

You see for some women, hg does not stop until labour but for some lucky women like me, they are able to turn a corner by 14-16 weeks. Fingers crossed the same will happen for your daughter. There's a hyperemesis support thread here on's full of wonderful women who are going through hg/have been through it. It's a great place to rant/get advice/cry! Your daughter is really lucky to have such a caring mum.
