I am pleased to say that I went a full week with only throwing up one time!!!! And I was able to get out a little and even went to church.
The HG is really much more under control this time around for which I am beyond thankful. Yes, I still feel that I am very much in 'survival mode' most days. I found a food that really seems to agree with me and it's bacon. If I eat some in the morning, it really helps me to feel better.
I am counting down the days until the first trimester is over - 3 weeks from today.
I can't wait to get my energy back and am praying that the sick feeling will go away once I hit the second trimester!

My husband and I were married July 2004. Our first child, a daughter was born April 2005 and our second, a son, arrived December 2006. Then our second son was born in October 2010. All pregnancies I suffered from HG, with it being worse with my second one. My 3rd pregnancy was by far the the best out of the 3 and that is because of the Diclectin.
"Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is a rare condition characterized by persistent and severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. It is debilitating and causes weight loss, dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, electrolyte imbalance, pH imbalance (metabolic acidosis), and possibly liver damage. Hyperemesis gravidarum may be related to the high hormonal levels in the blood from pregnancy, although the exact cause is not known."
HG - Hyperemesis Gravidarum
NVP - Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy
HG started at 5 weeks 2 days, and I "only" threw up about 35 times this pregnancy. The "easiest" pregnancy out of the 3, since I was throwing up about 6x a day with the 1st and up to 12x a day with the 2nd.
