HG stands for hyperemesis gravidarum and you're right, it's severe vomitting (meaning lots). Nasty stuff.
And thanks everyone! I am scheduled to visit that doctor again at my next apt and am fine with seeing him then, but will probably schedule my following apt with his partner.
It was just kind of irritating. I felt like I was being treated like I had no knowledge about anything. Plus, when he started the AFP shpeal and I said I didn't want the test, he continued giving his little talk about it. I repeated that I was not interested and would not get the test, and he STILL went on. Like he had a script he had to follow or something instead of just making sure I knew what I was talking about. He was very good in how he covered the weight issue, though, I have to hand it to him. And, other than asking me a few questions about my last pg, all he said about PE was that he doubted I'd get it this time while my previous OB had said he thought I had a "fair" chance of getting it (whatever that really meant lol).
Anyway, we'll see how the next apt goes, then I'll go to the other dr and see who I like better.
