Hyperemesis-The Sickening Story

Uh oh…. It’s happening again!

I reach for the bowl and up comes the sip of water that I had just had to stop my mouth from being dry. It’s painful to be sick and I have wet myself again because of the sheer force.

I suffered with Hyperemesis with all three children. The last two I was admitted to hospital and had to be put on a drip to be rehydrated.

I lost 2 stone in the first 12 weeks of all my pregnancies. I couldn’t eat or even drink properly. Sucking on ice cubes and ice poles were my only relief, even if just for a second.

Whilst in hospital, once I started to feel better and hungry.. Oh boy was I hungry! I remember one morning I was so ravenous, when they brought me round my breakfast, I had never been so excited to eat a bowl of cornflakes! They were the best thing that I had ever tasted! And the little cheese and crackers… I had the care assistants searching the maternity hospital for stray and unwanted packets!

Hyperemesis is an awful illness and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
