Im 20+3 weeks pregnant and from the start its all been down hill. Hyperemesis has really took charge of my pregnancy and starting to get me quite depressed. Not only am I being sick 7+ times a day but I'm constantly hunrgy and thirsty. Ginger is not helping my case at all, my skin is horrible, blotchy and dry. My breath is on the war path from sickness. My hair is dry and breaking off. Im bloated and gassy. I pass out if I get over heated and I'm constantly tired and waiting for bedtime. I've never felt this unhappy. All my life I've wanted to be pregnant and be able to enjoy the feeling, but all i feel is sick and my uterus growing (not nice alot like heavy period pains!) So with all this, I really do not want to be pregnant again which is bad as people see these kinda comments to be un-motherly. But I just cant wait until its over, I'm sick of feeling like this!
Sorry you feel this way but I can say you aren't alone. I have hyperemesis and was being sick or feeling sick all day every day. I'm 29 weeks and at 25 weeks I went to the docs and they prescribed me cyclezine and it has changed my life. I do have to take it 3 times a day and it makes me tired but I'm now not being sick and able to sleep- I do still occasionally feel sick still though. I didn't want to take Anything but became desperate and have been assured it's safe- I wish I'd have asked earlier it would have saved a lot of stress.
I know exactly how you feel. I've got HG and have been hospitalised once (I'm 13 weeks). I'm not on ondansetron and cyclizine, and like Rosduk, this has made malice bearable.
Have you been prescribed anything to help? If not I would think about seeing your GP. Also, are you monitoring your hydration? Ketostix are really cheap on Amazon. It's so important that you watch for ketones in your urine.
There is a hypremesis support thread on here. It has saved me from insanity! Pop over of you fancy it- there are some very knowledgeable and kind people on there, it's a lovely thread.
