Pregnant woman has thrown 50 times a day because of a crippling disease that affects one in every 100 new mothers

A new mother told about her pregnancy, hell after a crippling illness that led her to vomit up to 50 times a day for nine months.

Hannah Dalton, from Benfleet, Essex, was diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), which left her in bed and unable to hold food during the first six months of her pregnancy.

The 30-year-old was limited to a wheelchair in the last three months and had to learn how to walk after her second daughter Alexandra was born.

Mrs. Dalton has raided up to 50 times a day, with the faintest smells and even noises that triggered fallow episodes.

The business analyst became so malnourished that he could not eat that her hair fell out.

Doctors say that hair loss due to malnutrition normally only occurs in extreme cases.

But her symptoms disappeared the day after they had a caesarean section last month.

She said: & # 39; After surrendering 10 or 20 times, you don't always bring things up, but I was over a bucket at least 50 times a day.

& # 39; If I roll on I would vomit, things you don't even think they smell like other people, animals, flowers, and I just mean how they smell normally, no body odor or wetness – everything would affect me.

& # 39; I could only sit in bed with a wheelchair after half a year, I had to learn to walk again because my body had forgotten how to move normally.

& # 39; I became so malnourished that my hair fell out, it was just terrible. I was bedridden for six months of my pregnancy. & # 39;

As soon as Mrs. Dalton had her baby, her symptoms disappeared and her new daughter, Alexandra, was completely healthy.

Mrs. Dalton said: “It was instantaneous, I still get the strange reflex when I hear, taste or smell what triggered me in the past, but otherwise everything is back to normal.

& # 39; I had almost lost two stones due to the disease, and Alexandra weighed 6lbs 10oz, born on April 2.

& # 39; My first meal was fantastic, I had toast and tea, but I enjoyed it so much that I even took a picture of it.

& # 39; I'm just glad I got through it and my baby was healthy – that's the most important thing. & # 39;

Excessive nausea and vomiting are symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum. How many pregnant women receive HG is unknown, because some cases cannot be reported, but it is believed to be around half of 100.

More than two-thirds of women experience pregnancy complaints, but for most of the symptoms the symptoms improve or disappear completely by week 14.

If it takes longer than 14 weeks, this may be a sign of HG. It is not known what causes HG, or why some women get it and others don't.

Some experts believe it is related to the changing hormones in your body that occur during pregnancy.

The symptoms normally disappear around 20 weeks or after the baby is born.

Mrs. Dalton said that the most difficult part of being so ill was not being able to take care of her first daughter.

She added: & # 39; The hardest part was that I can't take care of my daughter, Elizabeth, who is only three.

& # 39; I couldn't pick her up, make her dinner, take her outside, only the sound of her favorite television show would surrender.

& # 39; Everything that I was around when I was sick would be a trigger like music, food or things I could see and hear – luckily I had a family who could take care of her.

& # 39; Even now she knows she has her favorite show & # 39; Mia and I can't see & # 39; when I'm around because I'm gagging. & # 39;

Mrs. Dalton stated that she could not drink for three months and lived off the lollipops for the last three months of pregnancy.

& # 39; When I came to the hospital to give birth, they asked me why I was so dehydrated, and I told them that it was because I hadn't been drinking for three months, & # 39; she added.

& # 39; It felt great when the symptoms disappeared, it was like my life was starting again. & # 39;

During her vacation, Mrs. Dalton became pregnant with daughter Elizabeth and her husband Michael in August 2018. She said she immediately started tossing dozens of times a day.

She spent the first six months of pregnancy in her bedroom. But then Mrs. Dalton began to move in a wheelchair.

She revealed that she had to train her body to move normally because she had spent so much time moving.

WHAT IS HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM?

Disease during pregnancy is common in more than two thirds of pregnant women who suffer from nausea and vomiting.

For most women, symptoms decrease or disappear by week 14, although it may take longer for some women.

Some pregnant women experience excessive nausea and vomiting, known as hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), and often require hospital treatment.

Exactly how many pregnant women receive HG is unknown because some cases cannot be reported, but it is believed to be around 1 in 100.

Symptoms include:

– prolonged and severe nausea and vomiting – some women report being sick up to 50 times a day

– dehydration – not enough fluid in your body because you cannot tolerate the drinks; if you drink less than 500 ml per day, you should seek help

– ketosis – a serious condition that results in the build-up of acidic chemicals in the blood and urine; Ketones are produced when your body breaks down fat, instead of glucose, for energy

– weight loss

– low blood pressure (hypotension) when standing

In contrast to normal pregnancy complaints, HG may not improve with 14 weeks.

It may not clear up completely until the baby is born, although some symptoms may improve after about 20 weeks.

It is not known what causes HG, or why some women get it and others don't, but there are indications that it occurs in families.

Some experts believe it is related to the changing hormones in your body that occur during pregnancy.

If you have had HG in a previous pregnancy, you are more likely to have it in your next pregnancy than women who have never had it, so it is worth planning in advance.

There are drugs that can be used during pregnancy, including the first 12 weeks, to help improve HG symptoms.

These include anti-nausea (vomiting), vitamins (B6 and B12) and steroids, or combinations thereof.

HG is unlikely to be harmful to your baby, but if this causes you to lose weight during pregnancy, there is an increased risk that your baby will be born too lightly.
