I have been in and of the hospital and put on a zofran pump to help keep me and my unborn son stabilized until delivery. Having Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is hard to deal with mentally, emotionally, and physically. It has affected my entire pregnancy. I feel scared to have another child.
I have lost the joy of pregnancy due to this condition. In 2018, when I had my daughter, I never experienced HG, so to find out in 2023 that I had it was a surprise. Pregnancy is supposed to be beautiful due to creating life, and it was in my first pregnancy. I have been scared numerous times for my unborn son’s life as well as my own.
HG Reality: a zofran pump
Battling HG, feeling alone, and feeling misunderstood cause damage to families. The mental, physical, and emotional impact of HG is awful. It breaks my heart that so many have experienced or are battling this pregnancy condition. It is NOT morning sickness, it is so much more than that.
I thank God above for connecting me with the HER Foundation and their community which is helping me cope. We need each other and more advocates. We more research funded to save us. And we just need more awareness!
The HER Foundation has helped me by being a voice for me. If it wasn’t for HER, I would not be able to cope with this difficult pregnancy.chelsey
We need to talk about HG. We need to make it known all over the world. Even if every pregnant women doesn’t experience this condition, it should still be talked about as a precaution. People can know the signs to watch out for and receive proper treatment as soon as symptoms occur.
We need to be heard. We need to help save mothers and babies. Everyone needs to be a voice for us. We already have to fight together to have people hear our story and understand us. We need the full support of the HG community to protect families, raise awareness, eduate about treatment, and research a cure.
