  • They say no, that it's not possible. I got food poisoning when I was about 6 weeks pregnant. It's was REALLY bad, and was coming out both ends. I know, TMI. I should have gone in for an IV because I passed out from dehydration. But the baby was fine. At 10 weeks my morning sickness set in, and it was BAD. I couldn't go 15 minutes without throwing up. I needed an IV a few times throughout my pregnancy because of it. It was actually called hyperemesis. Anyway, the baby was fine, but I got a hematoma on the placenta. The doc said that it could have been caused by dehydration, or by the force of throwing up. Or it could have just appeared. There was really no way to know.

    I think the most dangerous thing when it comes to morning sickness is dehydration. As long as you can keep water or something like Gatorade down, you should be okay. If you get dizzy or can't see straight, it's time for an IV.

  • How far along are you? We go through morning sickness... so unless your throwing up your stomach lining (It would be bloody and black) then you should be ok. Just try drink sprite and eating a couple of crackers.
