  • keep yourself as hydrated as possible. I had the stomach flu when preggo sucked so much. I ended up in the hospital cuz of dehydration. So that is a big thing..try to keep something to drink down.

  • When I got the flu I went to the emergency room...if your 21 weeks or over they will take you straight to the OB department, where they will give you fluids and if you can't keep them down they will give them the you in an iv. but beware!...they will take a urine sample to see if your dehydrated and if you can't pee they WILL put a cathiter in try and work up a pee! =) good luck!!1
