Just faces for a poster? Regular or preggo? Do you want HG kids too?

I'm sorry to say that I do have a photo of myself during the worst of my first pregnancy...I have a feeding tube in my nose and my husband is helping me stand up so that I can leave the house. My husband is also holding a bag of Jevity (my nutritional formula), which is on a coat hanger so that I can hang it up inside the car. Would that be helpful? I'll try to find it...I'm a severe HG case, by the way.

Also, I'm sure I could pretty easily come up with an accurate timeline of my HG (ER visits, hospitalizations, approximate dates for IVs and meds) - probably for both pregnancies.

Let me know if any of this would help.

Hey Anna. If no one gets back to you soon, I would go ahead and submit that photo to KImber. I am sure she would appreciate it.
I think she would appreciate the timeline as well.

Yes - please send me the pictures. I would greatly appreciate them!!! Anyone who would not mind my adding a picture to the poster, please send them ASAP to my private email: kimber@HelpHER.org. As I said, these will not be used for any other purpose w/o your permission. If you know the weeks and your weight (include your starting weight, too), that would be great. I am working on the concept of contrasting pictures of women at their normal (non-pregnant) weight and health, with pictures of them with HG. I would like to add a few notes like your initials, first name, state (to get the attention of the reps in that area), and weight/weeks. I think this will capture a great deal of interest and say more than al the graphs I can make!

I am down to the last few days, so PLEASE send them quickly. I so appreciate your time!
