I had a rough weekend. I have not been able to keep down anything at all, not even water. Yesterday I vomited probably more than ten times, basically every time I was trying to get anything in. This morning as well. I am thirsty and dry, and really hope that I can have some oral rehydration salts in water later on, otherwise I worry that I might need to go on IV rehydration. I have restarted the diclectin, and will even go to gravol if necessary, anything to avoid the IV and the hospital. I have not been able to leave the bed today, and barely did so yesterday. And, between all the vomiting and dehydration, lost 5 lb in the last 24 hours. I am hoping for a break sometime soon.
Some people told me, when seeing me sick, that I have asked for it, that I did this to myself. Yes, I am happy to be pregnant, and happy that the nausea signifies that the hormone levels are high, but I am really suffering, and to tell someone that they asked for suffering is calloused. On the other hand, I realize that before suffering from hyperemesis myself, I had no idea what it felt like, and so it is entirely possible that others simply don't know what it is like and hence can't take it seriously. I asked for a baby, that is all.
