So I was just flicking through google as you do and came across an article about Hyperemisis Gravidarum, detailing how sadly a woman lost her baby as a result of the illness and doctors and midwives not listening to her. And it hit home just how lucky I am to have my beautiful happy and healthy baby boy. I suffered from HG and was being sick multiple times a day right up until my 30th week. I was hospitalised and on a drip countless times, and even though the evidence was right there in front of them doctors and midwives still told me I had a “stomach bug” or “it’s completely normal.” It wasn’t until I was literally unable to function, and a complete mess that they diagnosed me and actually gave me the treatment I needed.
So grateful that Arthur is one tough little cookie, he may have been a skinny minnie when he came out, but four months later and he’s a right little chunk 😍🖤
