how late to wait?? RE Severe M/S ::update in OP

so i am 8 weeks pregnant, have had constant nauseau for 3 weeks. this sunday, 4 days ago, i started vomiting, constantly. Sunday and into monday i couldnt even keep water down. Since then i haven't been able to keep hardly any food down, no prenatal vitamins. only some water.

i kept thinking it was just a bug that would pass but its not going away. I have lost about 5 lbs (that i really didnt have to lose) in 4 days.

i txted, emailed, called and left a voicemail with my midwife but no response from her.

So when do i decide to go into an urgent care place? i am thinking of going and asking for some iv fluids and a script for zofran. i hate taking meds when preg but i need to start feeling better so i can take care of my young toddler too.
WWYD?

UPDATE: i got ahold of my midwife last night ( 3hours after i first tried to get in touch with her) she phoned in a script for zofran for me. today i am feeling MUCH better! thanks for all the advice!

Re: how late to wait?? RE Severe M/S

First off, I'd be mad my midwife wasn't responding to my messages in a timely manner. Secondly, I would say 4 days is a long time so I would go to urgent care and get some IV fluids and a script. Personally, if I felt that way for more than 48hrs I'd be knocking on my doctor's/urgent cares door.

When did you first message ur midwife? Sounds like maybe a few days ago? Personally, id be looking for a new care provider...
I had sever HG during my first trimester. As much as I hate urgent cares/er's I had to go twice for fluids and then ended up spending a few nights and the hospital because id held off going too long and my potassium was very low. For me, zofran didn't work at all. I needed raglan and that that took the edge off.
If you have been able to keep some water down that's good. But ya, taking care of another child while sick is nearly impossible If you don't feel you're getting any better go now so you don't get worse.

Go to urgent care if you can afford to. You can't take a chance and your midwife isn't available. Maybe she's on vacation?

You should just go now. Keeping down water is good but constant vomiting for 4 days isn't.
