If you haven't kept any liquids in you should probably head to the ER, last year when I was pregnant I got a stomach bug and my OB told me to go to ER for IV fluids I was so sick and weak I knew I was dehydrated and if you are dehydrated that's not good for you or baby I'm one of those people to just go to be on the safe side im sorry you aren't feeling well
I had a stomach bug awhile back and I waited until I passed out. I went in and got two bags of fluid. I felt like crap! So I think once you really start feeling bad and can't keep in anything you should go ahead and go. Don't be like me and wait until you hit the floor.
Yes, it does sound like a bug. My pregnant friend went through this and her midwife told her to drink coca cola if she could keep it down. Apparently it kills off any bacteria. Otherwise I would get checked out if it continues much longer incase of dehydration. Hope you feel better soon. TRy eating some dry toast
If you're feeling faint or shaky, I'd go in. Watch your temperature also. Otherwise, keep trying to replenish your fluids. Usually these bugs only last 24-48 hours, so you should be nearing the end. I had a nasty bout a few months ago, so spent a while figuring out what worked best. Here's my advice:
Try getting some Gatorade (I find the lemon flavor works especially well for this), and dilute it with water. Without dilution it's too much sugar. Personally, I'd steer clear of the low sugar type, though. I don't think the fake sugars agree with an upset stomach. You can also make your own rehydration drink. If you look on Wikipedia under Oral Rehydration Therapy you can find a basic recipe. Add a bunch of lemon or lyme juice (some people also like orange juice) to make it taste good. This or the Gatorade will be easier on your system than soda or pure water, and the electrolytes will help you rehydrate.
If you feel up to trying food, stick with the BRAT diet. Bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast.
And if your symptoms get worse or don't resolve fairly soon, go get checked.
