Hi

Posted a thread a few weeks a go when I was admitted to hospital with hyperemesis at 6 weeks and had a further 3 weeks in bed until about 9 weeks when I started to feel better.
Went back to work, could eat some foods, stopped taking cyclazine and generally just felt like any other pregnant woman.

This weekend I started feeling really sick and could not eat anything at all- just kept being sick with bile and wretching really.
I am 14 weeks tomorrow, so cant understand why it is re-occuring.

Was also meant to travel to Liverpool this week with work (from durham) and to work some long hours including entertaining clients on an evening.
I have rang boss and told him I would be unable to travel/work.
He was less than sympathetic although he did accept the sickness - just no "oh get well soon, dont worry about work etc" comments sad angry (typical man??)

Please tell me this wont keep happening and I will feel better soon
and WHY DO I FEEL SO GUILTY ABOUT WORK??

Hi Lily- sorry to hear your feeling rubbish again and its natural to feel guilty about work but reallly try not to... Think of all the time you have given to work in the past, this is for such a short time and such a good cause! Dont be hard on yourself.

Im also 14 weeks and while I've not had Hyperemisis, I had a day last week when I felt worse than ever- wondered if it was something to do with the placenta taking over hormones etc full time. Been feeling ok since. Hopefully it will pass for you soon.

I had a brief recurrence of sickness (not hyperemesis though) when I was 24 weeks in my pg with DD - it mercifully lasted no time at all and there didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.

I hope you feel better soon. (And drive pins in a wax model of your boss if it helps. People are appallingly unsympathetic about pregnancy sickness.)

Hope it passes for you soon.
