Stomach Bug While Pregnant = :(

In only 12 hours, I've lost 4 pounds and vomited at least 20 times.

I've had a number of accidents and I'm just DONE for the day and it has barely began.

Re: Stomach Bug While Pregnant = :(

Huggs!!!!! I had a stomach bug when preggo last time, although I was further along. I told the midwives I needed to go to the hospital, felt like I was goinng to die. They told me to relax and wait. I did but wasn't happy about it.

Hope you start feeling better. Don't drink water, try sprite, gatorade, ginger ale and drink little bits. Water made me throw up worse.

Definitely call your dr/mw. I had a bug a while back and lost 6 pounds in 24 hours. There was a ratio of patient weight to weight loss the dr. used to determine likelihood of dehydation and/or need for more serious intervention.

I hope it passes soon. I know how miserable being sick while pregnant is!

Ugh - so sorry! I hope it's a short-lived virus! I had a stomach bug in January while NOT pregnant, and it was awful. Can't imagine dealing with it while pregnant. Feel better soon!

Re: Stomach Bug While Pregnant = :(

Thanks y'all.

I'm up to crackers and chicken broth. I tried some applesauce and one was too sweet and the other was blech so that's a no go. At this point, I have no idea what I can do from here.

As long as I keep the zofran down I'm good. But I took it last night before I was sick and still threw up and then I took it in the morning and was still throwing up.

I'm just exhausted from this.

And on top of that my legs started hurting at all the joints and thankfully that is going away now.

Four of my children are sick. But three of them have stopped throwing up and are on chicken broth as well. I'm just waiting for the last one to get sick

I would call the Dr/midwife but I haven't seen the OB/GYN yet. It isn't until November 9th. And they aren't open on Friday For me though, I weighed 185 before I got sick and then 181 after, I don't think that would count for dehydration.

I had it last pregnancy, my mw had me taking grapefruit seed extract, at least 3 a day. Make sure you get grapeFRUIT, not grape. You can get liquid, powder but I prefer capsules. Hope you're better soon!
