    Hi girls,
    I'm 21 weeks today and I've picked up a horrible sickness bug from my MIL - I can't keep anything down, even finding it difficult to sip water!

    All I'm bringing up is stomach bile and I'm worried I might get dehydrated :(

    Has anyone got any advice on how to cope with this in pregnancy? :( it's horrible! Haven't had a bug like this for years
    Xx

    I had vomiting & diahroea about 2 weeks ago, i was advised that I couldnt take medication and the important thing was to rest and ensure I took in fluids, I think you should check with your own doctor as mine lasted 2 days max. I couldnt keep anything down, water made me worse :wacko: but flat 7up was easier for me to keep down?? and eventually I could take more and more - at first it was just a sip!

    Good luck and hope you feel better soon...its a horrible dose to have esp when your pregnant!!!
