I am currently 14 weeks pregnant. During these 14 weeks, I though I only suffer the so-called heavy morning sickness, throwing up 24/7 every single day, hating certain smells that can trigger the vomit session.
What else? Tired for 24/7 till I lose my mood to do anything including washing the clothes.
3 days ago, I was vomiting out the food particles like usual, then the food particles followed by BLOOD! I was panicked, I was afraid something going to happen to my miracle bundle of joy! So I went to the hospital, ended up staying in the hospital for 3 days and 2 nights. It may be unexpected to stay there but it is a good thing that the doctors and nurses are so caring, making sure the patients receieved treatment few times in a day.
Because of that, I only realized that,no, I do not suffer morning sickness but hyperemesis gravidarum which is much worse than typical morning sickness. You see, I am thankful that I was in hospital to receive treatment because at least, I no longer feel like vomiting now. I gained my stamina in doing things again, too, after 14 weeks of suffering.
But, doctors have advised me to drink lots and lots of water in order to stay healthy for myself and the baby.
Dear readers, have you experienced hyperemesis gravidarum? And how did you overcome it?
