Beyond Morning Sickness by Ashli McCall is a wonderful resourse for HG sufferers. I am currently battling hyperemesis and her book is what kept me through my darkest times. I hope this can help someone.

I have been there!! Do you have a supportive family and husband?
I am currently pregnant with my fourth, a huge surprise, and we were not sure if I could go through hyperemesis again. I did not have it with my first two, but with my third I had it extreme. Sick before I could get a positive test, diagnosed by 7 weeks, and my midwife suggested a PICC line then. I was sooo sick. The town's perinatologist said he never gives them that early and for me to just try my hardest. I ended up getting a PICC line at 14 weeks, after losing 23lbs, extreme dehydration affecting both my heart, thyroid and liver. I had 27 Urgent Care & ER visits for hydration & meds and 4 admissions. The PICC line, TPN (intravenous nutrition) and meds totally saved my life. It took awhile but I was able to regain strength and mindset. Now I am almost 7 weeks pregnant now and have been real sick, already needing intravenous hydration & meds twice this week. I have an appointment next week with the perinatologist to discuss another PICC line because I know what road I'm starting on and refuse to get so sick again. I have a husband, a 7 year old, a 4 year old and a 1.5 year old to care for, as well as this new baby who needs me to be healthy to care for it.
I feel for you. Good luck. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Oh, and I can't even take care of my own daughter. Talk about depression....

I was so depressed not being able to care for my kids in my last pregnancy with hyperemesis. And they completely took over the house while I had my head in the toilet. Marker on the walls. Food molding in their room. One day they painted the dining room wall with peanut butter and although I dealt with it everytime i tried to walk into the room the smell made me throw up, again

You are NOT alone!!!!! I have a daughter who is 2 1/2 years old and am 12 weeks today. The throw up is awful... The dry heaving is worse.... But the most horrible part is not being able to stand in the shower for fear of passing out. The massive anxiety that comes with the fear of the fast, weak heartbeat. I, too, feel like I'm dying!! It's so scary!!! Just an addition to The CRAZY hormones!! None of my friends have been through it, so I feel crazy and alone!
