To remember on Morning Sickness

I found a great article this evening that I needed to share.

Obviously, I have been missing from this blog due to a real good jaunt with morning sickness.  On one hand, I feel silly even mentioning it because most women don't feel all that great the first trimester or so.   On the other hand, I know that I get a real good case of morning sickness for quite a while.  It takes me to real dark places at times.  We are always so elated about the gift of a new baby, but a somberness does descend upon both John and I as we know what is about to come over our home for a long time.  I have a few questions I will ask Our Lord and that is definitely one of them.  Why such debilitating morning sickness?  I have a few people around here who need their mother.  Why such massive migraines that the only thing I can do is curl up in the fetal position?  I don't ever get headaches.  Ever.  Never.  At any other time in my life.  Why when I already have such severe nausea?  Lord?   For many of my previous pregnancies, I had developed this horrible stomach pain different from the nausea.  For several pregnancies, I had no idea why my stomach hurt so bad. I would tell my doctor that it feels like 75 knives are stabbing me.  He thought it was part of the nausea.  I knew it was something different, but didn't know what to research further.   I shared with a friend of mine who experienced that same symptom and she knew exactly what I had.

H. pylori.  YES!!!  That is it.  She was on a pain pump to control the pain.  Unfortunately, medicines and I don't go well together for some reason I haven't figured out either.  Blah.  Blah. Blah.  You know...hives, itching, blah, blah, blah.  Anybody have any ideas on that one?  So, back to square one.

I googled this evening "Relief for Severe Morning Sickness" and the following article came up.  I was reading along and couldn't believe when she wrote about H. pylori. I hadn't yet known of anybody who had heard or written about it besides my friend.

The Cause and Cure of Morning Sickness and Hyperemesis Gravidarum

Not me.  I originally clicked on this link because this picture came up and I thought "Exactly." 
 Anyway, I wanted to post and ask if anybody has had any luck with her recommendations.  I have written about morning sickness before, but when it hits, all that jazz goes out the window and leaves you literally clinging for your life.  Thank you in advance for any comments regarding the Colloidal Silver she recommended in the article.

I wrote about this because if the information can help anybody who is experiencing these symptoms, I am sure grateful.   Also, it may answer some questions for you like it did for me.
