You know you’ve got Hyperemesis when…

…you eat foods based on how they will taste on the way back up as well as the way down.

…you make a list of things you will eat when it’s all over.

…the first thing you do on entering a room is ascertain whether the waste paper bin would tolerate being vomited into in an emergency.

…you eat based on what will leave an aftertaste.

Feel free to add your own!

  1. Ha!

    –You like to drink ice cold fluids because they’re so refreshing when they come back up!

    –You admire the pretty color combo of the white porcelean toilet bowl, the pink strawberry yogurt, and the bright yellow bile and it doesn’t register until later how messed up that is.

    –The thought of IVs makes you want to do a little happy dance. If you didn’t feel like such crap.

  2. Oh yeah, the toilet bowl one I can relate to-

    …you marvel at having just eaten a multicoloured ice lolly, yet when you throw it up it comes back clear and tasting the same. Magical!

    …you pee on more sticks on a daily basis than you did the entire time you were TTC.

  3. You avoid noodles like the plague – horrid on the way back up

    People start congratulating you on how much weight you’ve lost despite the fact you’re pregnant and losing your waist

    You carry a hankie with lavender oil on it just in case you get sat next to a smelly person on the train

    You carry airplane sick bags everywhere because the hankie sometimes isn’t enough

    You seriously consider the next person who talks about blooming in pregnancy

    Throwing up becomes part of your morning routine. Contacts, Toilet, wait to Puke…Breakfast.
