I did have HG, but it wasn't a very severe case, I'd imagine. The worse I got was 7 bouts of vomitting in one day, which left me vomitting blood so I went to the ER. They put me on fluids and I was later put on Reglan by my doctor. The reglan curbed the vomitting to maybe only once or twice a week but left me with horrid nausea. UGh. And it started at 8 wks and went away at 16 when I started to get an appetite and tried going off the meds. Boy was I ever happy!
This time around, I've passed the 8 wk mark with some comparatively mild nausea but no HG. I was actually fairly confident that the HG wouldn't come back. Not as confident about the PIH. I have some aversions and have to eat as soon as I feel hungry, but can still eat normal foods! I can even still drink fruit juices and eat spaghetti without needing brown sugar in the sauce! So, I guess that means I have no heartburn at this point either. What a difference. HOping things continue this way!
BTW, it is finally snowing here! YAY!
