Southern Highlander NSW, second HG pregnancy

Postby Bronte's mum » Jan 22, 2012 10:13 pm

Hi ladies,

I'm in the Southern Highlands of NSW, currently in my second HG pregnancy. Oh, how the mind forgets pain (sort of!).

I'd love to keep in touch with others in Australia going through this. I've also just launched a blog to keep a diary of this pregnancy http://www.myfriendzofran.wordpress.com

Hey I'm Shannan and i'm in Vic
My 1st was un-diagnosed hg and untreated I was 16 when fell preg and told by drs that it was my body trying to abort but after 24 weeks was smooth sailing
my 2nd was just mild m/s
my 3rd was 100% sickness free my only boy but I suffered preterm labor
My 4th was server hg in 1st tri, mod in 2nd and just m/s in 3rd
I am now pregnant with #5 and sadly to say this is going to have to be my last I can't handle the pregnancies anymore for me getting treatment is a never ending battle.

Welcome number3forme. Congrats on your pregnancy. Are you on any meds yet? The time before HG hits is scary. Hope the search for a great GP goes well.

I have been taking b6 50mg 3 times a day for two months, have heard + & - sides of this but will try anything!! Found a fantastic GP who is willing to prescribe me Ondansetron at the first sign of nausea.. I seem to feel sick at night the past 2 days, have restavit ready, not sure if I should start taking half at night before bed now?? or wait ?? Its so strange because Im scared of HG yet starting to worry it hasnt arrived yet ( another MMC???) Drinking heaps of water... Waiting for my bloods to come back Monday to see HCG levels.. Last preg HG arrived at 3 weeks abd my HCG was 10000.. I was preg with triplets though! Thanks for ur reply !!

HI number3forme, I would definitely start half a restavit at night now, with one of your b6 doses.

Hope you're feeling okay.
