Aw Amee, I really feel for you. I agree with what Dawnypie wrote - 14 weeks you'll never have to do again.
I'm 10 weeks with my second. My first (also a HG pregnancy) is just over a year old.
My first HG pregnancy was such a shock. I'd never heard of HG before, let alone ever been so sick. The end of the first trimester and mid-second trimester were the worst weeks - exactly where you are at.
It did improve over the months, though I still took Zofran. To get through it I did a few things:
Read lots of books and watched movie after movie, or better yet good TV series (didn't take too much brain power to follow!) on my laptop in bed. This allowed me to 'escape' from reality for a few hours and get through the boredom of being bed bound.
My husband used to encourage me to get out of bed on the days that I could to at least walk 20 metres in some fresh air. I hated it, but know it did me good. Some days I just couldn't get out of bed.
Get somone to change your bed sheets each week. It's so easy to let the weeks go by as they feel more and more awful! It's hard and sometimes I just couldn't, but I tried to have a bath or shower every day. I loved baths because I could just lie there!
Get as much help as you possibly can from friends and family with your other children. It's one time in our lives where us HGers really need it. I know I'm lucky to have family nearby (in-laws) and I have just asked my mum to come up and stay (they live 5hrs drive away) for a week or so because I'm dying for her company and just the little things like putting the washing on.
I also tried to look to the future as much as possible. Prior to my pregnancy I was training for a marathon & I was determined to enter a half-marathon after the birth. Primarily it was set as my goal to get fit and healthy again, and my secondary goal was to show people that I am tough - the HG was real, not me being a hypocondriac over normal morning sickness! It was a really emotional run needless to say! Find what drives you when you are not sick from HG and set some sort of positive goal.
This time around I know what the end result is. With my first, we had no idea what becoming a parent was going to be like, and to be honest, if we really wanted to. I used to lie in bed wondering what we'd done. I just have to look at my DD now and she reminds me why I'm going through this hell again!
Try not to be scared of possible future treatment - who knows, a PICC line might really help you?
Stay strong and know that there are other HGers here who are thinking of you![/i]
