  • You will probably discover within the next 2 to 3 hours that you have a stomach virus. There is a really nasty stomach bug going around right now. My whole family had it. If you start to have diarrhea, you need to take some Imodium (it's safe during pregnancy) to stop the diarrhea so you don't get dehydrated. If you start throwing up be sure to call your dr to get you some Fenigren or Zofran. You need to stop the vomitting and diarrhea as early as possible to prevent dehydration. Also be sure to drink plenty of water.

    The stomach bug I just got over lasted 15 hours. I'm breastfeeding my 3 month old and so go super dehydrated really fast.

    Take care of yourself.

  • You'll probably get diahrhea. We've been sick like that here too starting yesturday with the SO. It sucks. Drink lots of fluids,get some rest, take a warm bath(that eases the cramps a little). Hope you feel better soon.
