All day yesterday and so far today i have not been able to eat or drink anything without it coming right back up! I am so scared imma get dehydrated! How long can you go without anything and still be ok? Anyone know? I really dont want to go to the er and get an IV of Fluids, i have already had to do that once I just dont know what to do! Im usually not sick at all! Im thinking it could be a virus =[
I was having trouble keeping fluids down last week. My Midwife told me that it was safe for me to take gravol to keep my stomach from getting upset so that the fluids will stay down.
You could try that.
Hope it helps
Oh.. On top of that my midwife said that she could prescribe me a safe medication that I could take that would also help settle my stomach (but only having student health coverage it was too expensive for me to get) You would ask your doctor(or midwife) if they have any recommendations for you.
I already have some, they aren't working out for me though. I already called my doctor and she said that if i cant keep anything down by the time my husband gets home that i need to go ahead and go to the hospital for fluids =[ ugh!
Oh noes ): and by the sounds of it, you wont be able to keep fluids down by the time your hubby is home.
I wish I had more advice for you that could help, maybe some of the other ladies will have better advice in the next little while. (I hope)
I just had a stomach flu so after I took something for it my stomach settled and allowed me to take fluids in.
