this is my 3rd pregnancy. i had a rare liver disorder called ICP with my first pregnancy, it was awful, and it also has serious still birth risks. 2nd pregnancy no major disorders, but had post partum issues (bled for 9 months post partum). now i've had sever morning sickness since. it went away for a few weeks but then returned. some days i throw up 5 or 6 times by 7am. other days i just feel nauseated all day long. i'm fearful it has something to do with my previous liver problem. the OB ran some tests yesterday, waiting for results. the nurse seemed to be alarmed that i'm still so sick, said it could be my kidneys, or it could be 'stress'. i don't know but it's ruling my life!!!! one day i'm ok, next i'm housebound. i've spoken to a couple other people who said they had it until the day they gave birth. has anyone else had this? I know it's called HG (Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe type of vomiting of pregnancy which has got deleterious effect on the health of the mother and incapacitates her in day to day activities.) I was prescribed some anti nausea medication, sometimes it helps sometimes i throw up as soon as it's in my mouth. and the medication has risks of stroke! I have gained weight, so that's not an issue right now. i have a high calorie high fiber etc. protein smoothie every morning to make sure i get nutrition.
help! anyone that can relate or know more about it or what is going on? my ob is not helpful (my beloved OB just moved out of state and now i'm stuck with a temporary replacement who seems clueless in general).
