Ethansmom -- how are things going? I am praying that your pregnancy is going OK, and that you are just getting more rest and that's why you haven't been posting. Please update when you have time.

Thanks for checking in Amy! I haven't posted in forever, so I was surprised to log on today and see this message at the top of the forum...I must've been reading minds :) Anyways...I am feeling pretty awful still. It hasn't changed much. I am 12 weeks along now, so am praying for this nausea & sickness to subside soon! It seemed to peak around 10-11 weeks then I've had a few good days since then, but it waxes & wanes. I am off all meds now which I think is contributing to some of my other symptoms...I've been very tachy and lightheaded, and super tired. I have completely shut down for about 6 weeks now, which means we have no food in the house, it's filthy, the laundry is piled to the ceiling...everything is off kilter and David is not happy because I am totally shut down. My doctor is optimistic that I should feel better soon, but I'm not expecting miracles :D I got some great info from my autoimmune specialist which I will post separately, which is the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyways...thanks for your concern, I hope everyone else is doing well!! I will try to post more soon!!

My sister was really sick with hyperemesis when she was pregnant. (See: http://www.hyperemesis.org/hyperemesis-gra...index.php?image) I think they had to give her IV's, which helped. Anyhow, there are measures docs can take to alleviate the nausea/vomiting. I hope you start feeling better soon and come back to join us on the forum.

Wow ... that is weird you posted today! We must have ESP.

I am sorry you aren't feeling well but delighted to hear that you may have found a treatable cause for your POTS! Although I am not glad to hear it's Lyme. My husband had Lyme two summers ago and it was awful. And he only technically had it for three months. He still has residual effects (strange fatigue that hits him out of nowhere, night sweats, etc.) now and then.

I am praying that you have a healthy baby and the rest of your pregnancy is stress- and symptom-free!

Good to see you back Jessica. I'm sorry you've had a rough time for so long. Trust me, there will always be housework and there is always laundry! Keeping/getting yourself strong is more important right now. I'll try to answer your questions about my experiences with surviving Lyme on your other thread tomorrow.

best regards, tearose
