I also suffered from Severe Hyperemisis during my pregnancy with my son, I was wondering if any of the medication prescibed affect the baby in any way, I have a beautiful healthy 3year old but am very concerned about having another one and the medications affecting the baby. I was on IV the whole nine months which was basically a mix of liquid gravol and saline, i could not keep down the diclecten so that was my only option. Is there anyway this could harm the baby/ fetus?
