My torments of pregnant days. 2

Hope you all have read my previous post on how I got ready for the marriage function. Thus is the continuation of the previous post. 

If I remember I asked my mom to leave earlier since I was unable to stay in the noisy crowd. Some how I had the feast (lunch) and reached my parents home as it was 5 mins away from the church. As soon as I reached home I vomitted everything which I had and slept for an hour.

Finally I should go for the reception which was 18 kms away from our home. Though I travelled this distance daily for my college, I felt like crossing Himalayas. Eventhough I can’t stay straight I ought to wear the uniform Saree for the function (for a snap) somehow I worn it and reached the hall. As everyone enjoyed the feast I returned home empty stomach since I was having vomit during the function. Finally I slept with an idly. Though the news made me to remember this am praying for the princess.

HG symptom 6

Thanks a lot for your support till now. Share the blog post with #saveagirlfromHG if you feel that it could save a girl from death during pregnancy because of hyperemesis gravidarum.
Good morning to you all. Yes, today’s post is the symptom which starts as soon as I get up. Hope you all have the habit of having tea with milk after brushing your teeth. I can’t drink even a drop of water before brushing. Here comes the symptom, when I keep my brush with any type of paste vomit starts. If it gets triggered in the morning hours it continues till late night and hence I can’t have even a single drop of water. Hope you have read my intake of food in the previous post. To stop this trigger I started to use salt and it worked out well. Hurrah I found a way finally.

Keep on reading to know more interesting facts on how I escaped death….

HG symptom 5

The vomit which made me get hospitalized for four days occurred after some visible symptoms. They are as follows… There came the lunar cycle(full moon/no moon). Hope you all know about the crystallization of sugar which results during the making of sugar syrup, in the same way, my facial skin on my chin between the lower lip and lower jaw turn out like scales. I can’t even take my head off the bed, for which I should rest my head on a wall. For the first time, I don’t know about Hyperemesis gravidarum and its symptom, and I was severely dehydrated which resulted in the formation of ketone. Due to the formation of ketone they gave me IV for three days continuously to bring me back. Thanks, aunty (my gynaecologist) else am no more now. They gave me an injection to stop vomiting. And we came back home after five days in the hospital. After returning home for two days I am able to eat, a dosai with sambar in the morning, a cup of rice and fish in the afternoon along with aviyal, and a chappathi with a banana smash in the night….. this is my diet till ninth month…. Hope you all started to feel the severity of my peculiar vomiting.

My horrible days will be continued……

HG symptom 4

As an Indian, you all are aware of the term which people start asking a married couple after a month of their marriage, “any good news?”. Yes, I too had the situation to hear this within a month of our marriage. Tears came out from the depth of my heart. For a girl to hear the good news is the best moment in life, but on seeing the various expression of people around me, made me think about aborting the child. Yes, there were many people who were waiting for a baby in my husband’s family and this is what which made me think out of abortion. I cried in mind and yes we started to receive good news from others too. Finally, I came to my parents home and my first hospitalization happened because of the lunar eclipse. My parents and grand parents were not aware of the term Hyperemesis gravidarum and for them if there is vomiting eat more. They were keeping on giving me more liquids and solid I kept on vomiting. If I drink 5ml of water there results in the vomiting of 200ml. This continued till late night and blood started to come out during my vomit. The next day I was hospitalized and various test resulted in the formation of ketone.

The process carried out in hospitalization will follow….

HG symptom 3

As the moon rotates around the Earth my next symptom rotates along with the moon. Yes, my vomiting increases on no moon and new moon and resulting in hospitalization. I identified the symptom of my extreme vomiting only after my second hospitalization.

Since my home is located near a dharga, I had my friends and schoolmates from Muslim community, this made me to be aware of their way of praising God from my childhood days. Anishma, thanks for our discussions on the way you pray. Yes, to reduce my vomiting sensation during no moon and new moon, I started to rest my head on a wall near my bed. I did the same during my phone calls, slowly I started to feel the difference.

Am writing this to make an awareness on Hyperemesis gravidarum. I decided to pen down my experience and experiments of how we overcame since no one believed my difficulty.

HG symptom 2

The next irritation is for the science invention, which shrink the world. Yes, for cell phones. Invention of cell phones is to get in touch with our loved ones who are miles away. When I was waiting for my dependent  visa, we are miles away, the only means of communication is by skype and phones. But am allergic to the radiation. I cant even hold the phone for two mins. This made me to get stressed more and then I started to use speaker facility. The time difference played another role for my vomiting sensation. Gradually I stood away from phones and used skype more.

The next symptom makes you all laugh. Wait for the next update.
