You heard it here first. Grab you Husbands, Mothers, Brothers, Sisters and Cousins because you’re going to want your whole family to read this!
I started this blog in hopes that not just the women suffering from HG would gain some support, but their family and friends would as well. I asked advice on a Facebook Hyperemesis Gravidarum group and was completely stricken by the amount of feedback I received. 450+ comments and counting. You ladies had a lot to say!
So, here it is, in full sass commentary. Your own personal guide on how to not piss off your pregnant HG mama. You’re welcome in advance!
It’s really quiet. I can hear the house shaking when the wind hits the side of the window. I’ve been laying here trying to sleep for about an hour now, but the nausea is taking over and soon I fear I will lose control. Im trying to talk my body into getting better and thinking happy thoughts, but I don’t think it’s working. The bottle of medicine on my night stand is almost empty and I don’t think I have the courage to ask my husband for more money to refill the prescription. I’ve been out of work due to my pregnancy for about four months now and it’s getting harder to look into his eyes and ask for anymore. He is working so hard while I just lay here. What is wrong with me? Why can’t my body do what it’s naturally supposed to do: make a baby.
