  • with my third baby I was sick a lot. I was sick so much that my OBGYN thought I was having gall bladder issues (ultra sound for it,and liver panals came back fine though). I guess I just caught every virus that was going around!!

    I don't know why some women get more sick while pregnant. I have been told your immune system is weaker during pregnancy though. Hope you feel better soon!!!

  • I've had horrible stomach bugs, and bronchitis while pregnant, and I even contracted Lyme disease while pregnant with my second. None of these ever harmed the baby, and I had to go on antibiotics for the bronchitis, and (a very looong dose) for the Lyme. Your baby will be just fine :). GL and I hope you feel better soon!

  • My 1st baby, I was sick very little but this time I'm sooooooooooooooo sick. Every pregnancy is different so just wait it out and hopefully it'll go way.
