    So I had one of my worst days every yesterday. I ended up at the hospital for sever dehydration only to find out that I have "Hyperemesis Gravidarum". It's a condition in pregnant women that prevents them from keeping food down and causes excessive vomiting. They put me on an IV and sent me home the following morning. I have some muscle strain in my chest from the vomiting. They also told me that I have some white blood cells in my urine which they will have to keep an eye on for infection proposes.

    But they gave me an idea/plan of how to manage and cope with it throughout my pregnancy as it won't be dying down until I deliver. So far it is working and I'm not feeling as ill as before. Hopefully it is all uphill from here, I'm sure things could be much worse!! :cry:

    On the good side, we heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time, going strong which really helped with my mood and helped my OH to calm his nerves.

    Thought I'd share my latest adventure, it's never ending. Hopefully everyone is staying positive through their experiences. It's all worth it in the end.

I too hade to have IVs and was in for a week was admitted a few times because of it, but once they regulated my tablets I was OK.....but I had to continue on them for 2 weeks past labour too.

    Yeah I am on some anti nauseate tablets. I'm taking one every 4 hours as prescribed. Seems a bit much but it is making a difference. Feeling far from myself but hey it's better than what I was feeling before :wacko:

    I was on tablets for constant sickness with Rebecca, citrizine (i think they were called) that worked a treat. I hope you dont feel too ill, and its great that u have remained positive.

    Just rest, and take it easy x
