A few years later, my husband and I decided to plan for another pregnancy. We met with many specialists and even traveled to Boston to meet with Miriam Erick personally. I was then informed of this book, Managing Morning Sickness. I purchased it immediately and read it cover to cover before even conceiving our second child. It was a life saver filled with nutrition information, recipes and meal plans for different cravings (e.g. salty, crunchy, etc.), descriptions of complications from hyperemesis, medications being used and even alternative therapies. This book also talks about triggers for morning sickness, which helped me to try to avoid certain scents & situations. Per Miriam's advice, lemons are a great for trying to prevent nausea. Lemons are not only great for drinking as lemonade, but for sniffing as well. I would carry a fresh lemon wedge around with me whenever I had to go to doctor appointments or any other place with a lot of people. If I started to get nauseous from a particular smell or fragrance, I would sniff my lemon wedge and the nausea would get a little better.
I can't say enough about how Miriam's books helped me get through my pregnancies.Read more ›
It is very comprehensive, and covers important aspects such as possible causes, triggers, medications, alternative treatments, cravings, as well as helpful recipes. It also includes touching stories of other women having gone through severe morning sickness and HG.
I had severe hyperemesis with my first pregnancy (IV’s, hospitalization, medications), and bought this book in preparation for my second pregnancy. I also had a consultation with Miriam, and she is an awesome resource for women with HG. It felt so good to talk to a medical professional that actually understands HG, and takes the condition seriously. During my HG pregnancy my doctors just did not take me seriously, or give me appropriate treatment, which left me feeling helpless and very hesitant to go through this again. It truly was a healing process for me to read the book, and talk to Miriam.
HG is an awful debilitating condition. I would not even wish it on my worst enemy. For all you ladies out there, I think planning in advance is definitely key to get through HG. The more resources you have the better. Miriam and her book are great allies against the HG monster. I was unsure about pursuing a second pregnancy, but this has given me hope and strength to face what is to come.
This is probably a great book for women with MORNING SICKNESS. Hyperemesis is not morning sickness, and the advice for one is not applicable to the other.
"To be perfectly honest, when you have hyperemesis, a book about managing your morning sickness is of no use whatsoever.
With hyperemesis, when you can't even keep water down, recipes won't really help you; they'll just make you sicker. You really have 2 options - take medications or take IV fluids (which they also put medications in)."
My comment: your mileage may vary, and there is a difference between hyperemesis and "just" morning sickness...
