|Oh Bella, we know how you feel! We feel like we're dying too!|
HG is absolutely nothing like regular morning sickness, a common aliment in pregnancy which usually passes by the start of the second trimester. If you've ever had salmonella, you will have some idea of the scale of HG. It's not just throwing up one or two times a day, it can be up to 50 times! The difference is I was in and out of hospital after just one week with salmonella, whereas HG can often last anywhere between 20 weeks to the whole pregnancy.
Having suffered with HG myself these last three months (which is why the blog has been so quiet and my inbox set to 'out of office' ) I've decided to give HG it's own blog post to explain what HG is, what it certainly isn't and what not to say to a loved one who may be suffering with it.
