Hyperemesis Gravidarum?

when i was in my 1st trimester i had Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

a had it for awhile. and it didn't get better till i had an iv and zofran. altho the zofran didn't help that much.

anyways to my question. since i had that. does that mean im pregnant again i will have that? or no.

I have had it throughout all 3 of my pregnancies. The first two went untreated and we lost our 1st at about 11 weeks. I got a new OB with this pregnancy and this time I knew a lot about HG from research and made sure she knew about my previous pregnancies. I started getting sick at week 5, so she started me on treatment right away hoping that we could potentially stop it from getting worse. Well the treatment works great, but I have never been able to get off of it and I am 38 weeks pregnant now. I go in regularly for IVs and take Zofran. I was on a Zofran/Phenergan cocktail, but after a while I found I didn't need the Phenergan. I was able to go for about 2 weeks without Zofran around my 6 month mark, but then the HG came back with a vengence. I have been able to get away with taking only half a pill of Zofran now for about 2 months though. Anyway, some people are lucky and never get it, have it for a short time, or maybe throughout one pregnancy. For me, it's been every single one! If you have had it before though just prepare yourself because it is highly possible you will get it again.  (+ info)

hyperemesis gravidarum?

i think i might be pregnant again, my last pregnancy i got hyperemesis gravidarum, and i was wondering how ofter it reoccurs, cause i cant go through another pregnancy with it, any help?

Unfortunately if you have a tendency to have it the first time, you will get it all other times.

In saying that, you may not suffer from it this time. If you do start suffering severe morning sickness, you should see your doctor. There are a lot of safe medications that you can try that will alleviate to some degree your symptoms.  (+ info)

how to deal with hyperemesis gravidarum?

this is my first pregnancy and I have been to the ER 6 times and admitted to the hospital twice for dehydration due to hyperemesis gravidarum. I have been on Reglan, phenergan, and Zofran but it is still out of control. Is there anything else that I can try. I am 16 weeks along and so far my doctor says the baby is fine, so if I just need to suffer through it I will, but is there an end in sight or is this something I will deal with the whole time?

Been there done that...i pretty much had to suffer through. Nothing worked other than the hospital IV's, Zofran and Pepcid AC. Hang in there, it gets better. FYI...mine ended at 18 weeks hopefully your's ends soon too.  (+ info)

If you've suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, how long in your pregnancy did it last?

I'm just curious to see the average length of the answers. I suffered from it till i was 17 weeks.

With my first child in 2003 it last the entire 9 months. I know I'm pregnant even before I miss my period, once implantation occurs and that hCG hits my system I'm sick day and night. Same this with this pregnancy. This time around at 8 weeks they decided to give me some meds to help control it. If I forget to take the meds I still get extremely sick. You're lucky that it went away at 17 weeks.  (+ info)

Has anyone ever heard of hyperemesis gravidarum?

What is it? What are the causes, what are the symptoms, what can be done?

it's severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.


The cause of severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy has not been identified. Hyperemesis may have a genetic component, as sisters and daughters of women with hyperemesis have a higher incidence.

Hyperemesis is also associated with hyperemesis in prior pregnancy, female gestation, multiple gestation, triploidy, trisomy 21, current or prior molar pregnancy, and hydrops fetalis.

Women with history of motion sickness, migraine headaches, psychiatric illness, pregestational diabetes, high or low pregestational weight, hyperthyroidism, pyridoxine deficiency, and gastrointestinal disorders are also at an increased risk.

Some studies have suggested that Helicobacter pylori infection may play a role in hyperemesis, but the data are inconclusive.

there's a list of drugs here http://www.emedicine.com/emerg/topic479.htm
that they can give.... but i wouldn't take anything without talking to your doctor.  (+ info)

what are the chances of having Hyperemesis Gravidarum for a 3rd time?

I had it with both my previous pregnancies, im now with a new partner and would love to have another baby, but not sure if i can go through all the sickness agian!!

I can empathise. I projectile vomited 3-5 times everyday for 5 months straight with my daughter. It was awful trying to take care of patients when I kept running out to go vomit. My doctor gave me Zofran and it worked wonders for me. If you are going to brave having another I'd recommend asking your doctor about Zofran. It's a category B drug, so not a high risk for pregnancy, and I had a healthy baby.  (+ info)

Anyone out there have Hyperemesis Gravidarum?

I had this, from about 5 weeks to almost 11 and a half. It was the worst thing in my life i have ever went through. Now i am 13 weeks and feeling pretty good, but not great. Does this ever get completely better?

Well I never got diagnosed with it, but I was vomiting constantly and had severe nausea from 10 weeks to 20 weeks. I was in the ER so many times getting IV's. I couldn't even keep down water or ice. It was so awful, I lost 10 pounds, I couldn't go anywhere it was awful. But I got better and I've only thrown up a few times since 20 weeks. I tried the pills they gave me but they didn't work, they just made me sleepy and when I woke up I started throwing up again. My doctor said if it got better before or around 20 weeks everything would be fine and it did. Now I'm having about a 9-10 pound baby!!! Good luck.  (+ info)

Is anyone else dealing with or have had Hyperemesis Gravidarum?

I spent a lot of January in the hospital due to the ungodly amount of vomiting. Bleh! Its taking its physical toll and its dragging me down emotionally. How do you cope with this hell? (Yes the medicines help but they are no cure)

Fun stuff eh?hopefully it goes away.have you tried getting outside.I know when I had it getting outside and sitting in the sun helped. if that's hard to do 'cause it's -a billion outside ask your doc for light therapy. I hope that works for you. just remember the reward that you'll get at the end of this, a beautiful baby. good luck.  (+ info)
