Hyperemesis Gravidarum

How am I feeling? Let's not go there. Instead, let me just give you a few links and you can infer what you will.

Handling Nausea In Pregnancy from plus-size-pregnancy.org, Kmom's great website full of information for moms of all sizes.

Help HER - Hyperemesis Education Research. Probably *the* organization for HG issues. Check out the community forums section of the website.

Baby Center has an active HG bulletin board. Actually, Baby Center has active forums on just about everything. It's a good place to go if you need instant community.

Yikes! I didn't know you had this. . . I know it can be quite serious. Best wishes. . .

Thanks. You know, I thought I had it really bad - I only knew one friend "in real life" who had MS/HG worse than me. Then I got on some of these support boards and found that there are women who have to be hospitalized their entire preganacy and fed artificially. Even some who "terminate" their pregnancies because it is so bad. I can't imagine, although on bad days I am tempted to rethink my "quiverfull" inclinations.
