what is Hyperemisis?

I dont think i have ever really posted about what hyperemisis is.... so here is a little bit of info taken from a great website the leading website about HG for familys who are dealing with this during pregnacy.

"Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. It is generally described as unrelenting, excessive pregnancy-related nausea and/or vomiting that prevents adequate intake of food and fluids. If severe and/or inadequately treated, it is typically associated with:

-loss of greater than 5% of pre-pregnancy body weight (usually over 10%)
-dehydration and production of ketones
-nutritional deficiencies
-metabolic imbalances
-difficulty with daily activities

HG usually extends beyond the first trimester and may resolve by 21 weeks; however, it can last the entire pregnancy in less than half of these women. Complications of vomiting (e.g. gastric ulcers, esophageal bleeding, malnutrition, etc.) may also contribute to and worsen ongoing nausea."

im home.
Im also sick with a head cold that one of my girls brought back from daycare.

Had to go in to IV therpy to get my zofran and a 2L shot of IV fluids. I was soo thursty during the infusion in my PICC.... i drank 3 cups of ice water, and sucked on the ice cubes. PLUS before I left i drank a big thing of chocolate soy milk.

Today i have an appt with the midwife. My father is taking off from work early and is going to help get me there, and take me grocery shopping afterwords and help with the groceries financaly. I hate having to ask him for help, but i have to. I havent been able to get to the food bank in the last 3 weeks becouse of being sick. And where the food bank is in town i cant get the food home unless i have a ride. And no one in town knows that im using the food bank so its that giant catch 22. Also i have no friends in town who have acess to a car.....

im just so exhausted. im congested so much, and i have a headach and i feel so yucky! DD#2 has it and is starting to get better. Looks like it has bypassed DD#1.....

I have to go to IV thepy tomorrow to get my PICC bandage changed. I hope it dosent take too long....

Well its 9 am, and the kids and DH are out of the house. Im going to crawl back in to bed. Im just so tired all the time.

Im now 32 weeks. Im so exhausted. I want this to all be over. Im so sick of being sick. Im done.

i was admited to the hosptal on thursday night. i started to be able to hold down some food with the IV fluilds running through my PICC line. Today i feel like crap. I puked this morning and i just feel down.

The depression that has come with puking so much has got to me. I have seen shrink since i have been here and it helped a bit. But since he is just doing a consoult he cant prescribe me anything as he cant follow me once i leave. the greatg catch 22 thing.

other then that. im here, the baby is doing great. She is still nameless. Its another girl! Boy is DH is in for a treet when puberty hits. 3 young women in the house! I doubt we will ever see the bathroom again once they hit the age of 10!

emotionaly im quite down. Im sad, im depressed, and im just reddy to be done.

im just about 32 weeks now. a little over 5 more weeks till its safe to deliver.

please sugest names for this baby. DH and I cant agrree on anything.

so the PICC was put in on tuesday. it wasent as bad as i thought but i bled quite a bit and it made me almost pass out....

they went and changed the bandage today on it, and after we were done with that DH and i went to the canada day celebrations near the airport.... We just paid amission in and then went to finde the bathroom (baby on the bladder!) and i pointed to DH were we were to go and he freeked out... turns out i was bleeding from the bandage site and was bleeding down my arm and i dident notice... SOOO i went to the bathroom, cleaned up, and then we had to go right back to the hosptal. NOT FUN.... i wanted to get my girls there first cotton candy and i noticed they had pony rides by donation!
We dident get to do any of that!

on the way back from the hosptal i wanted to get some fresh peas to eat, and i did, and 2 hours after i ate them i got sick and threw them up..... then today at dinner i had half a hotdog (no bun just the dog) and a few pices of watermellon, and guess what! About 2 hours later i threw those up!

It just sucks!

i also noticed we have nothing for this baby in newborn or 0-3..... i have no clue how we are going to get clothes for this kid..... im just so depressed.

I think a lot of the depression is comming from the fact that i cant do anything. i cant even lift my kids anymore becouse of the weight restriction (no lifting over 10lbs)......
I just want to be able to eat, i want to be able to do things, and i want to be able to have sex without getting sick!

It just sucks....
