Should I go to the Emergency Room?

I am 8 1/2 weeks pregnant and have been coughing horribly for the last 2 days, feel like I have to vomit but there is nothing in my stomach to come up, am congested and when I cough my stomach hurts like a menstrual cramp. I also have diarrhea. I don't have a fever. What I wanna know is should I go to the ER or not? I appreciate the advice. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I actually had that when I was about 17 weeks prego. I didnt go to the doctor because it only lasted a day. I thought it was morning sickness but after the 3rd time of puking, gaining a fever and laying in bed the whole day. I just took gravel to help with the nausea and slept. i was so close to going to the ER but didn't. If you feel the need to go to the ER, do for it.

  • they could do an ultrasound to see if the baby is located in the right spot and make sure its not growing in your fallopean tube...i went at 6 weeks and its been about 31 weeks later since then =p

  • I wouldnt rush to the hospital but I would call the doctor to see what he says. I hope you feel better! Hopefully its just a cold.

  • I would call the dr in the morning. It doesn't sound like anything I would want to
    sit in the ER for 12 hours over. Hope you feel better soon :)
