Hope for Extreme Morning Sickness

The following is reprinted from the comment section on Mommypotamus's The REAL Cause of Morning Sickness:

"I am pregnant with baby #5.  I have always been very healthy.  However, as soon as I can get a positive pregnancy test, I had been sick in bed and barely able to function.  I could not keep any fruits and vegetables down and lived on Sprite and french fries among other unhealthy choices.  After 4 kids I decided to be done having kids despite my husband's and my choice to have a large family.  I had so many negative pregnancy symptoms that I couldn't hardly function and I was a horrible mom while I was pregnant.  My throat was tore up from morning sickness, I threw up as much blood as anything.  I had restless leg syndrome so bad I could never rest.  After I discovered your website and others and learned to change a few things in my diet I found out I was pregnant again.  I cried for two days straight.  But then I realized I wasn't sick and had to keep taking pregnancy tests.  I am almost due and have thrown up less in 7.5 months than I would in a typical week before.  Mostly that was due to having a cold, exhaustion, (I do have four kiddos after all) and eating wrong.  Thank you for what you do.  I find it very informative and helps to open up so many different views I hadn't thought of before.  I can finally be excited to be pregnant and be excited for this little one, instead of just surviving."

Mamas, there is hope. We don't have to assume that extreme pregnancy nausea is our fate. There are answers out there. There are women who have successfully healed underlying health issues and gone on to have healthy pregnancies.

Keep reading. Keep researching. Keep trying.

Don't give up.
