My story

[p]If you had told me a few years ago that I would be wild camping in the Welsh countryside in late October with a group of women that I don't know that well, I would have laughed in your face. But that's exactly what this challenge will involve as well as hiking 36km, kayaking and river crossing. I am excited and terrified in equal measure! I will be so far out of my comfort zone but I will be in excellent company, surrounded by a group of women who have all suffered the horrendous condition of Hyperemesis Gravidarum during pregnancy. If we can survive that, we can survive a couple of days in the Welsh wilderness. I have already begun some fitness training in preparation for this challenge but I know I will push myself physically and emotionally over the 48 hours, so there is a lot more work to do. I want to prove to myself that I can do this in spite of the physical effects I experienced after suffering HG twice. [/p][p]There are a lot of similarities between this experience and HG but the most significant way that it differs is that we are doing this challenge together, as a team, whereas suffering HG was one of the most lonely and isolated times of my life. [/p][p]Please sponsor me! Not only is this a massive challenge for me, but Pregnancy Sickness Support is a tiny charity that relies entirely on fundraising done by volunteers like us. I can guarantee that every penny you donate will go to supporting women who are currently suffering, helping women prepare for a second (or third) HG pregnancy or raising awareness of this awful condition and the treatments available.[/p][p]These 2 beautiful girls are the reason I am involved with this charity. They have an increased risk of suffering in the future so I am determined they will not suffer the way I did and they will have the support of this wonderful charity.[/p][p]Thank you![/p]
