  • I had it and didnt eat or get hungry or drink anything that much maybe 1 8oz glass of water for the day was it ...but my hubby made me drink pedialyte and gatorade to stay hydrated so that would be a god idea if your not eating or drinking.

  • I got the flu when I was 21 weeks. and i was sooooo sick. sicker than i have ever been in my life. I could not controle what was coming out of both ends of me. And my obgyn stuck me in the hospital, so I could get iv fluids. She didn't want the fluid around the baby to get to low.

  • I know this doesnt really relate to you since you are 21 weeks, but right before i found out i was pregnant ( i woulda been about 4 weeks or 5) i went to the ER twice, once with a temperature of 104.8! The first time the brushed it off as nothingm and the 2nd they said i had the flu, mono, and strep.I could not eat or drink anything for almost 2 1/2 weeks straight, it was a miracle to keep gatorade down, but the baby is fine =) try to stay hydrated and take your prenatal vitamins! I hope you feel better...

  • You should probably call your doc...you don't want to get dehydrated, because that will make you even more sick...
