Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe and unrelenting condition which is characterized by extreme pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting. Pregnant women who are diagnosed with this condition are often so ill that they are unable to perform simple daily activities. Since many women suffering with this condition are either hospitalized or put on bed rest, they often look into sleeping positions to help with hyperemesis gravidarum.
According to The Her Foundation, hyperemesis gravidarum gets better sometime between 14 and 21 weeks, but for half of the women who are diagnosed, the symptoms last the entire pregnancy. The constant vomiting comes with the risk of losing five percent or more of your body weight, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, and the potential for kidney problems.
The biggest relief from hyperemesis gravidarum comes with getting sleep. Here are some sleeping positions that may help help you if you are suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum.
