My story

[p]I’m running the D99 Ultra, a non-stop 100 mile race through Royal Deeside in support of my wife Lynsey and others who have suffered through hyperemesis.[/p][p]Lynsey had hyperemesis during her first pregnancy, with our Son Mitchell and again with our Daughter due in May. I can’t thank her enough and I’m amazed at how she dealt with everything along the way. [/p][p]There’s a chance you’re reading this and thinking, “why would you raise money for morning sickness, loads of women get it”. I might have thought this a few years ago and perhaps it’s why I feel the need to raise some money and awareness. [/p][p]Hyperemesis is not morning sickness. It can't be treated with ginger or tea biscuits. It requires medical treatment. It requires hospitalisation numerous times for intravenous fluids due to severe hydration. It requires anti sickness injections when oral medication can't be tolerated. Mostly it requires a supportive network and well informed health care professionals, which luckily we had. Hyperemesis is vomiting 30 times a day. It's the fear it will last 9 months and if the baby will be affected. And yes, it's what Kate had.[/p][p]This might seem a bit patronising coming from a bloke but it’s what I know. [/p][p]If you don’t know much about hyperemesis, please visit www.pregnancysicknesssupport.org.uk/ [/p][p]The way I see it, there’s 100 mile tough and then there’s the strength required to deal with months of sickness and pain! [/p][p]Any donations would be much appreciated[/p]
