Desperate for a third child but terrified of inevitable Hyperemesis Gravidarum

I had terrible Hyperemesis with my second pregnancy and then with my third which sadly we lost.
I am now desperate to try again for a third baby but totally terrified at the though of experiencing the inevitable Hyperemesis Gravidarum that I went through last time. I’m so totally torn between put myself and my family through 9months of utter turmoil and an incredibly strong maternal longing for a baby.
I don’t suppose anyone has been through HG whilst having to take care of old DC? Or if anyone knows of any specialists eg. Dieticians/hypnotists/reiki/acupuncturists/doctors/healers/studies/kinisiologists, anything/anyone at all that could possibly help with preventing HG or getting my body into tip top condition prior to conception to help combat it?

Also, does anyone know if any hg specialist units/Centre/hg private nurses who could help if it does strike again?

Any info whatsoever would be absolutely invaluable. I’m really struggling here.

I am 30 weeks pregnant and still suffering with HG. I have an 8 year old son also which has been an absolute nightmare even looking after him, I won't lie. I had terrible HG when I was pregnant with him also but it's okay when you are able to just rest when you can etc but this time round has been so so so difficult. With my 1st pg I was only sick until about 20 weeks but this one just isn't going at all unfortunately. My husband has been an absolute god send though. I genuinely don't know what I would have done without him.

Every pregnancy is different of course and you could end up not having it at all of course! That would be amazing. I would love to have more kids after this one but after 2 hellish pregnancies, I just can't put myself through this again. If you have a solid support system in place then go for it!! I really don't think there is anything to prevent it though, I am on a cocktail of anti-sickness/vitamin tablets trying to help and I'm still being sick every day sad
