Customer Reviews

Ashli McCall has written a superior book for women suffering from HG.
Madeline P. Nugent
In the very least, to read these words, and know that when everyone else around you clearly doesn't understand what you are going through, there are people who do.
H. lopez
This book is a MUST READ for anyone suffering from - or dealing with women suffering from - HG.

I'm a little perturbed that someone would give this book a negative review. But, that's just from my heart as an hg survivor. This book will never be something pleasant or easy to read for anyone. By nature, hg will never be anything less than terrible. With this disease, encouragement is enveloped by the cold, hard reality that life has become a living death. I, personally, would burn any book encouraging abortion in any form to a woman in such a desperate situation. From my experience, the women that I have talked to who have shared this horrible disease and ended up terminating their pregnancy wanted those babies, and were upset at not being told they had options for better care. So, to the negative reviewer, I am sorry this book wasn't all popsicles and daisies, but, this is hg.
Even when the endings weren't what they had been hoped to be, I was so touched by the stories of women who shared in my suffering. I loved that this book wasn't just anecdotal but helped explain hg and the options we have to fight it. The more amazing thing, is that there are women who have suffered through, that are connected to this book, who are ready and willing to reach out, creating a support system for the women who contact through the website. In the very least, to read these words, and know that when everyone else around you clearly doesn't understand what you are going through, there are people who do. That is probably one of the greatest gifts an hg-er can be given, having someone understand her, her agony, and that it is not her fault.

I found this book with my current pregancy. My hyperemesis was full-blown again, and I was desperate for new help. This is my third hyperemesis pregnancy. Ashli's book was the greatest resource I found. The personal anecdotes helped me feel like I was not alone and I could get through this hell. Her medical advice was clear, step by step, and easy to understand. I was able to give certain stories to my husband and parents so they could understand my plite better. I downloaded the HG pamphlet to give to my medical group which was suprisingly uninformed about hyperemesis. Because of the knowledge I have during this pregnancy, I was able to get on Zofran immediately and request hydration twice a week as soon as the vomitting began to last all day and night. I moved in with my parents for help with my 3-year-old, and am doing so much better now at 5 months. During my first pregnancy, I was deathly ill ALL 9 months because I didn't get the proper care early enough. I wish I had this book in 2005!

Format: Paperback
With my 4 pregnancies I have felt yucky some of the time and so when I heard from other people that they were sick all the time, I naturally just said, "Yep, I know what you mean". Oh boy, after reading this book I now know that I DO NOT know what they mean! When you hear one HG story, it is easy to wonder if it is really that bad or if your friend is just wimpy. However when you read Ashli's book you come away with an understanding of the medical information as well as some understanding as to how it feels to have this dreadful condition. This book alternates between a personal story, many that are deeply honest, followed by a chapter of medical information. This format makes the book easy to read (even though the subject is difficult)and it is a must have for the HG sufferer, her family and friends and the doctor. This is truly an amazing book that took a lot of courage to write and share the dreadfulness that HG brings to the suffer as well as the hope and tools to get through this time.

This book is a great buy for someone suffering from HG, or even their family and friends. It is an accurate representation of what we go through with HG. For those worried about the book being depressing, what is more depressing than being pregnant but unable to eat or drink? Getting violently sick every 10 minutes? Having to sit in the dark with no light, sound, or movement just to survive? Having to be hooked up to machinery in order to be hydrated and receive nutrients? YES! HG is depressing. But knowing you aren't alone.... *that* is the real gift this book can give.

I am a 2 time sufferer and survivor of HG. This book (which I read entirely on my kindle) brought me an immense sense of comfort knowing I wasn't alone, I'm not crazy, and yes there IS hope for enduring such a horrific pregnancy. My MIL also purchased the book so as to have some insight as to what I was going through. This book is an amazing support for both the sufferer and the support people!

Ashli McCall has written a superior book for women suffering from HG. Her sharing of personal stories as well as much valuable information and self-help suggestions on this awful illness will help sufferers and those who love them to bear down and get through these terrible days of illness. There is hope at the end of this tunnel and it wears a diaper! Ashli's book will give women the strength to persist in their pregnancies with hope until birth. HG DOES end!

Thanks, Ashli, for a really wonderful and helpful manual.

I suffered moderate hg while pregnant with my daughter. I lost 17-20 pounds in 13 weeks. At 17 weeks, I recieved an official diagnoses. This book was critical to helping me advocate for much needed care.
