22 weeks pregnant with hyperemesis gravidarum: Back to the hospital

I’m hopeful that this will be the last time I need hospital treatment for my pregnancy sickness but I’m quickly learning that HG is full of ups and downs and I’m just going to have to ride it out. Hopefully there will only be another 18 weeks to go and then I will be holding my beautiful daughter in my arms with this whole nightmare behind me.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum: The pregnancy game changer

“Barely able to get my words out I told him how I hadn’t managed to eat and keep any food down for days. He looked at me puzzled and said, without a trace of empathy in his voice, “What are you so upset about? The baby will be fine and the sickness should pass by 20 weeks.” He wrote me a new prescription and sent me on my way. I was in pieces, at 13 weeks pregnant 20 weeks sounded like a lifetime away.”
