Hyperemesis Gravidarum Before During And The Aftermath The Untold Side Of Pregnancy You Haven't Seen…..

The dark side of pregnancy you haven't seen…..


June 2016

I fought for my life and survived Hyperemesis Gravidarum …… 

I fought for my life , I won the battle against my body , I won the war I am an #hyperemesisgravidarumsurvivor . #HyperemesisGravidarum is a life threatening pregnancy condition that can kill mother and her child. When a #HGMom tells you she is sick do not tell her to just suck it up or get over it . Do not act like it is not a big deal when 1 out 3 babies do not make it to a life birth . The babies that do make it can be born with serious or defects or disabilities due the dehydration and malnourishment in the mother . Chronic malnutrition and dehydration can have a lasting impact well after #hg is over . #HGMothers can not forget about the odds been against them 24/7 . Remember #HyperemesisGravidarum can kill you #morningsickness will not ! #hyperemesisgravidarumbeforeduringandtheaftermath #HGRealityQuote #hyperemesisgravidarumsurvivor #HGAndTheAftermathAware #HGAware #StarvingAndPregnant #HGStrong #HGCanKillYouAndYourChild #hgmovement #AreYouHGAware #hgisnotmorningsickness #hgisnotmorningsicknessitsbeyond​ 

Comparing Hyperemesis Gravidarum to Morning Sickness 

Comparing morning sickness to #HyperemesisGravidarum is like comparing paper cut to getting your arm cut off ! Do not tell a #HGMother to get over it , to suck it up , it’s all in her head because it’s not! Hyperemesis Gravidarum is a life threatening pregnancy condition that mothers and babies died from. #HGMothers are unable to eat or drink and are pregnant and starving ! We are allergic to pregnancy we do not get to enjoy food or eating for two , we do not get to drink cold water on a hot day ! When we see others eating and drinking we are jealous and the smell of food makes us violently sick ! Learn educate yourself and become #HGAware #HGBeforeDuringAndTheAftermath

Hyperemesis Gravidarum Life With Zofran Pump 

#HyperemesisGravidarum  is anything than a normal pregnancy it really the worst time of a HG mothers life . ! This mom is  a 7 time Hyperemesis Gravidarum Surviver . During the worst times she honestly couldnt tell you how She did it or how she survived HG.  pregnancy suppose to be a happy time not dreading each day , everyday is a nightmare .

This HG mom has a  16 years old and back then doctors had zero understanding it was hard and a living nightmare . Years ago Hyperemesis Gravidarum mothers were thrown in to a mental health ward and place on what’s called a 51/50 . Hyperemesis Gravidarum is not something a mother makes up for attention or because she doesn’t want her child . There are more understanding doctors now in 2016 but not many ! The medical Community is still very on educated when it comes to hyperemesis. 

Each pregnancy HG usually gets worse , this last pregnancy was really bad for Tiffany and she wants to let mother know they are not alone . For 7 months her Zofran pump was her lifeline as for many mothers it is .  Many health insurance companies denied life saving treatment for Hyperemesis Gravidarum mothers and not all mothers get a Zofran pump and even with medication going 24/7 and you have to change it every three hours or the machine will start beeping . Mothers do not get much sleep during Hyperemesis Gravidarum because they are vomiting constantly. 

For Tiffany it wasn’t an easy thing to go through to hook it up!  A Zofran pump has a syringe that holds life saving medication that was delivered to her by Fex X  truck . The sound of the truck is embedded in her head and flashbacks of the nine months of HG hell She went through . The pump it attach to tubing and has a needle that she had to poke herself in the stomach and every time she missed she would cringe !   Tiffany told me “My littlest one would sing a song with me 1-2-3 GO !”  Many times I would miss and have to jab myself again ! Each Zofran catheter I would have to change every two days if I could make it that long the area would be red and swollen and raw at times . I would run out of spots on my stomach to stick myself so I would try to find spots that the lump wasn’t so bad ! Pregnancy shouldn’t be like this it’s suppose to be a happy time where you are spoiled not fighting for your life and your babies . 

To this day Tiffany is terrified of needles she has constant flashbacks of her traumatic  pregnancy with Hyperemesis Gravidarum ! She had to get weekly blood transfusions and even with hydration was still very sick ! Everyday she was in fear because of these Zofran commercials an articles claiming Zofran causes birth defects mothers are terrified their child will get a birth defect . With Hyperemesis Gravidarum you must weigh the benefits and outweigh the risk . If HG was just morning sickness a mother could go without but with Hyperemesis Gravidarum the mother has servere dehydration and malnourishment and weight loss and unable to hold down fluids or food their IV is there water . 

 Hyperemesis Gravidarum is not over when the pregnancy ends almost every mother has some type of PTSD due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum .  HG moms are forever changed by HG, this is not morning sickness this is a life threatening pregnancy condition that kills mothers and their babies . Hyperemesis Gravidarum affects you not just physically but emotionally and mentally scars you forever ! 

If a Hyperemesis Gravidarum mother tells you she is sick , listen don’t judge and please do not tell her to suck it up and call it morning sickness . Hyperemesis Gravidarum has an everlasting impact on the mother the child and the whole family ! Learn educate and become #HGAware

#HGAngel of the day Ayden Rae Pack for June 10, 2016 

It been loss week at Hyperemesis Gravidarum Before During And The AfterMath and we have been sharing the dark side of #HyperemesisGravidarum when babies do not survive due to the mother not having aggressive medical care and treatment! This sweet moment between a mother and her husband and their baby Is one that parents should never endure. Our #HGAngel here is a sweet baby girl named Ayden Rae Pack ! This moment catches the sad part of what #HyperemesisGravidarum can do when a baby doesn’t survive. This heartbreaking moment is so hard to see and why we need a Standard medical care protocol in place for every Hyperemesis mother so every mother gets the aggressive medical care they need to have a better outcome . 
1 out 3 babies do not make it to a live birth due to #HyperemesisGravidarum ! We need to raise more awareness for a cause and a cure ! These two parents did a wonderful thing with the loss of their daughter and started a nonprofit organization called the Ayden Rae Foundation that offers support for HG families worldwide ! Not all pregnant women get Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) but for the women that do its a life threatening pregnancy condition that can kill mother and child and it nothing like morning sickness it’s beyond . Morning sickness won’t kill you or your child #HyperemesisGravidarum will 

Learn about Hyperemesis Gravidarum and educate and share this to show your support .

Are you currently pregnancy with Hyperemesis Gravidarum ? Then take the HELP TEST !!! We need HG Mothers to take this test !!!! 

Curious about the new HG assessment tool developed by the HER Foundation? If you had HG before and want to try it, see the link below. We appreciate your feedback and responses on the new HELP Score. HG severity is more than quantifying the number of hours you are nauseous or the number of times you are sick. This new tool looks at the mother’s condition and her symptoms. Share this link so we get enough responses to publish on the importance of this new tool for HG assessment and present it at medical conferences.
To try it based on a previous pregnancy, use the older survey link and select yes for pregnant.

Thank you for supporting HG research! @hgmoms

Hyperemesis Gravidarum mothers always silent and dismissed with their symptoms of HG…

Breaking the Silence On HG

It makes me sick and angry on the subject of loss of a baby and when a mother share those photos are treated like crap . Your able to post pictures of your child Who is alive , so why can’t a mom share her baby even though the baby sleeping . You’re a damn hypocrite.
It’s the only thing to hold on too . The subject is so taboo and shouldn’t be. My team and myself witness it ourselves when Hyperemesis Gravidarum Before During And The AfterMath loss week when myself (Starr Andrews Strong HG Activist )
posted a photo of one of my HG sisters still birth photo .

People got offended .

I lost Facebook friends, and followers . I won’t sit here and sugar coat it . To the women who know me , know I am a very aggressive HG Activist. One of my mottos are ….
“I am in your face and will put you in your place “
Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is a life threatening pregnancy condition that can kill a mother and her babies due to dehydration and malnourishment in the mother . Many babies do not make it to a live birth .

“1 out of 3 babies do not make it to a live birth . “

HG Babies that are stillborn or miscarried still deserve to be shown to the world . This subject should not be taboo or offending , however it is . I’m sick of it and will not stand to see any mother who had HG or in the aftermath, being bullied and harpoon on .
Every year we celebrate and I post on this subject people get pissed off .
It made me so angry. I had quite a few people, blow up on me, I just laugh 😂 like your going to bully me ?
However one must know you will NEVER WIN when you battle with me . I am a mama Bear and I protect my HG moms at all cost !
I am in your face and will put you in your place Starr Andrews Strong HG Activist style .
I said “rude comments will only make me fight that much harder . One of you made a comment that being an activist shouldn’t be in your face , well I hate burst your bubble sweetheart but you are #WRONG !!!!! This is how you make a difference in this world. We shouldn’t have to be politically correct all the time and I am not going to walk on eggshells to please anyone /everyone. If I see a mom bullied, YOU BETTER RUN 🏃 because I’ll wipe the floor with you .
If you do not like my post, do not follow me , my organization and so on. Also please delete me. You have actually encourage and motivated me to do so much more so thank you from the bottom of my heart for being offended by my post of all the sweet babies who passed away because of HG ! Because of your comments you gave me such motivation to not give up and gave me some wonderful ideas to take it a step further , so once again thank you !
I fought for life , survived the battle , won the war I am an HG survivor.
#HGSurvivor that will not give up and fight for the rights of all Hyperemesis Gravidarum mothers and babies, even the ones who suffer in silence ! The loss is real in the #HGCommunity and #HGMothers shouldn’t have to be silenced because the subject is taboo and not politically appropriate! I am personally sick of it and will not let another #HGMom suffer in silence #BreakTheSilenceOnHG
#HyperemesisGravidarum mothers lose their babies daily, 1 out of 3 babies do not make it to a live birth but we know this number is much higher . The loss is real ! Mothers that do not have #HyperemesisGravidarum still lose their babies as well and they are suppose to suffer in silence and be hush hush and to me that is not okay .
Get use to seeing babies born sleeping or miscarriages from loss due to #HyperemesisGravidarum . These babies never got the change and deserve to be celebrated as well. If your offended by this post do not open it , do not read it and I ask you to delete yourself if you do not want to be apart of our #HGMovement.
Hyperemesis is brushed off and not taken seriously and I am breaking the silence!
Babies that do not make it deserve to be celebrated as well so get use to it The #HGMovement is coming and no one will stop it .

Loss week due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum baby Jordan was our #HGAngel for June 3 2016 

This week is loss week here at HG Before During And The Aftermath Today we have Baby Jordan, who became an angel July 29, 2014. Daddy willingly joining her December 30, 2015. HG and the impact it has not just on the mother that is huge but on fathers too. This sweet angel is gone but never forgotten and now is with her daddy. Mommy hopes they finally got to be together. HG affects the whole family , fathers can not deal with the death of a child due to HG.  Sadly 1 out 3 babies do not make it to a live birth and we know this number is much higher . When mothers do not get good medical care and are chronically dehydrated and malnourished and have ketones in their urine they are more likely to deal with losing a baby to miscarriage or still birth . Mothers who are sick also are force into abortion because they are not given any help or support from the medical community. 

This sweet angel is gone to soon baby Jorden you are not forgotten, mommy misses you so much and hopes you and daddy are together .
