  • Yes, you should get checked out. At least, I would. I'd call the on-call doctor.

  • If you're vomiting yellowish fluid, it's probably stomach acid, I've thrown it up myself. If you've been throwing up for a few days and not able to keep anything down, you really should go to the ER or see your doctor in the morning so they can hook you up to an IV if necessary.

  • It sounds like you should be in the hospital getting rehydrated. Also, ask for Zofran. It can help with the nausea. If you take it, also take Colace because it can cause constipation. I went through this myself with my DD. It stinks, but the end result is totally worth it :)
