Stomach flu in first trimester?

I think I have some kind of stomach bug, since I've had stomach ache and very runny diarrhea since yesterday (no vomiting and no fever, but I did have headache and backache, which I think were unrelated). I'm drinking lots of water to prevent dehydration. I'm fairly sure it is not something I ate, because my 16 month old had similar symptoms yesterday and she is better today. But since I am just over 4 weeks pregnant, I am worried. Do you mamas think the virus might have harmed the baby?

I had a horrible stomach bug at 5 wks and all is fine with my LO. Hope you feel better soon.

My doctors have always told me that babies in the belly are strong little ones and can handle and make it through a lot. Just keep trying to stay hydrated.

I am not preggo ATM, but I had a stomach virus last week that sounds exactly the same. It took a good five days for me to feel 100% better. Hang in there!
