For those that are unaware, the American Pregnancy Association defines "Hyperemesis gravidarum" as being a "condition characterized by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and electrolyte disturbance."
"Mild cases are treated with dietary changes, rest, and antacids. More severe cases often require a stay in the hospital so that the mother can receive fluid and nutrition through an intravenous line (IV)," the group added.
The APA goes on to note that any pregnant woman who experiences the temporary illness should "not take any medications to solve this problem without first consulting" a doctor or "health care provider."
While nearly all pregnant woman encounter morning sickness on some level, only about "60,000 cases" are cited as being Hyperemesis. Luckily, the symptoms tend to alleviate "between weeks 14-20" of the pregnancy for most.
Many of Rose's fans and followers have since commented on her post, with many sharing encouraging messages, as well as their own experiences with the illness.0comments
