We Still Need Buddies! Is your location represented?

Postby PamelaRose » Jun 21, 2004 12:41 pm

Thank you to everyone who's so generously volunteered to help out other HGers. I am thrilled with the buddy list I'm compiling, but I WANT MORE!!! Ultimately, I'd love to see many women from each state/area to call on when needed. Here are my numbers; if you do not see a volunteer down from your area, please consider adding your name to the list. If you see a few from your area already listed, please add to the total--the more, the merrier! To do so, just send me an e-mail with your name, location, and e-mail address. When I pair you, you and your buddy can take it from there! :D

I would love a New Yorker. My other New Yorker is moving, so it would be great to fill the spot! The more the merrier; just shoot me an e-mail with your name, location, and e-mail address and I'll add you to the ranks. :)

Hi,

I'm in northwest Oakland County, Michigan. I'd be happy to be a buddy to someone in need. Northern Ohio is reasonably close.

Hi, Lisa - I need as many volunteers as I can get; the more from each area, the better. My goal is to get a healthy suppport community in each state, so Pennsylvania will really be rolling with 3 now! :wink: Just e-mail me your info so I can update my list. Thanks!

From NC

Postby nikki0072004 » Oct 20, 2004 8:11 pm

HI.

I only found this website today, and I think its great! I wish I had known about it when I was pregnant.

I have had 3 HG preganancies, 2 with therapuetic terminations, (one at 16 weeks, one at 22 weeks.) and one beautiful 2 yr old born thanx to 64mg on Zofran for ENTIRE PG.

I would like to be buddy to someone in NC, or a military girl, since I am a military wife. I am in Jacksonville NC, on the coast.

Tell me what to do, and I will do it!!!

Nikki :D :lol: :D

Hello,
I'm from Eastern Washington and would really love to help someone with HG. I had it with my second baby. I posted a subject about my experience somewhere--called, "My Four Year Old after HG"--I'm also new here, but so happy to have found this forum! :)

Thanks so much, Sarah. Your children have the most wonderful names! :) I have a new nephew named Henry, and I'm in love with old-fashioned, classic names.

I'd love to add you to my list; just send me an email with your location and email address. Thanks!

Hi!

Can you use a buddy in England? I live in County Durham. I have had 5 HG pregnancies. I also suffered with extreme hypersalivatioin. I made it through with the help of a wonderful, supportive husband, a great doctor and a central line for TPN and medications (IV Zofran and IV Benadryl - I was allergic to Regalin). Even with all that help, it was nearly impossible to bear. A dear friend who had also suffered with HG during her pregnancies was my "buddy." Just knowing she understood made all the difference for me. I would love to do the same for someone else.

My last baby was born January 21, 2004, three weeks early. It is all still very fresh to me. Please let me know if I can be a buddy. I'm sure there are women in England suffering with HG pregnancies.

Love, Holly xxx

Hi Pamela..I am a 3 time HG survivor...Each progressively worse. I see that you already have a bunch of people from CA but I will be happy to do whatever I can! I would have loved to have known about this site while I was experiencing pregnancy. What a wonderful support system!

Thanks so much, Kristie. I'd love to add you to my list. For every volunteer I have from a state, I have 2 women asking for a buddy, so I can always use more help! Just send me an email with your email address and location.
