Hello all, so I’m not TTC any time soon but I do have an IUD which makes me have extremely mild pregnancy symptoms. Well, lately I’ve been nauseous by all get out, headaches, and feeling faint. All of these are common with my CVS as well but on a lesser scale than a full episode. I was diagnosed with CVS about 6 or 7 years ago and I’ve heard that pregnancy can make it worse or better. I haven’t had an episode in several years because I figured out my triggers, but I’ve been worrying lately that when I do get around to having kids that my CVS will get worse and I’ll be useless to do anything. I was just wondering if any other bees have gone through the experience (and hopefully gotten better). I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about it so much lately but I’m freaking myself out!

I don’t know anybody with your specific condition but my SIL had hyperemesis gravidarum while she was pregnant (the same condition Kate Middleton had) which was severe morning sickness that lasts all day and night, causes vomiting to the point that many people with it have to be hospitalized. She still worked when she could, she was a pharmaceutical rep at the time and would literally throw up in bathrooms of doctor’s offices, pull over to vomit, but there were days that she had to spend the whole day in bed just to avoid going to the hospital. It’s not pleasant but it is not abnormal for people to feel the way you fear you will feel. I don’t even have severe morning sickness and there are still days when I can’t focus, can’t accomplish anything, and if my blood pressure drops I just need to lay on the couch and do nothing.

I have CVS and am 11 weeks pregnant. I have had morning sickness but I wouldn’t say it has been severe. If you have any specific questions feel free to message me I would be more than happy to help.

@sit1010: Wow that sounds absolutely horrible. CVS is similar in that the person goes through episodes of vomiting, fainting, and severe abdominal pain. That’ll go on for several hours to several days and then can be fine for days up to years. It’s theorized that it is connected to migraines (the person with CVS doesn’t have to have them if their mother does). I hope you and your sister are doing well and I hope that morning sickness gets better. I’m just worried that I’ll be couch bound for the majority of the pregnancy because I pass out when I stand up during my episodes.

am priya and 12 weeks pregnant with cvs. It’s been a struggle everyday. How did you cope up with cvs and how long did it last for you in your pregnancy. What are the meds you took and how was your journey ?
