    as some of you know ive been throwing up since thursday... cant keep anything down, not even water.

    rang my mw today and she said 'ring the gp in the morning if youre not any better'

    ive been throwing up for 4 days!!!!!!

    for all i know the baby could be in danger and she tells me to ring back tomorrow!

    im so frustrated im sat here crying!

    The main concern here is dehydration,so get to A&E to get it checked out as they could put a drip on just to get your fluids to an acceptable level.

    I would disregard the MW and go with gut-instinct,what do YOU feel?

    They will see you straight away in A&E as they will send you straight to central delivery and from there you will get the best care. In fact give Central Delivery a ring now and they can advise on what to do next.

    It's what we pay our taxes for hun so egt your peace of mind.

    I had Gastroenteritis about a month ago and everything I ate and drank waas coming out of both ends.

    I spoke to NHS direct and they sent me to an out of hours GP. In the end there was nothing they could do for me except I had to drink little and often, some of it was being absorbed, clear fluids only, and eat nothing until 24 hours after the last bout of diarrheoa.

    Try calling NHS direct if you don't want to go to A & E they will tell you to go to A and E or the maternity day centre if they tthink thats what you need and they will let them know in advance.

    Hi hunni

    Try not to worry with DD1 I was sick from week 6 all the way up to 40 weeks plus four, in the earlier weeks I was like you nothing would stay down, so I had to go on a drip but the baby was fine, GP said that the baby was taking what it needed, and the sickness was more so cos of the lack of iron. (not saying your lacking iron btw) anyway as far as sickness goes mine was all the time every morning and sometimes in the evening with DD1 but it was constent, and I knew it would happen.

    I had trouble keeping most things down, sometimes I had to eat then sleep, so Id digest some, then at least there was something in there, (iykwim)

    It is hard when your sick, and not been so for a while, but cos I was used to it last time, im already ready to incounter it this time round.

    Hun I hope ur ok, and please be careful with headaches, if that doesn't subside I'd phone NHS 24 as that can signal high blood pressure = pre eclampsia :hugs: Im not wanting to worry you, just concerned :D

    Keep us posted xx

    Hi Terrie,

    Keep drinking the water, try it warm or hot as well. Don't eat any thing yet! If it is food poisoning or gastroenteritis you need to flush it out of your system.

    Take care of yourselves!!
