  • Ugh I was sick through my WHOLE pregnancy I caught every little thing that went around and my pregnancy took place mostly during the summer. Explain that one! ;) Baby sucks everything from yuo which weakens your immune system. Drink lots of orange juice or just get lots of vitamin c is the juice gives you heartburn and ride it out. If your puking and have diarhea you may need to head to an er to stop dehydration so push fluids and if you feel terrible go get an iv. It's really important that you dont get dehydrated

  • I didnt get sick once when I was pregnant... And I usually get sick very often. I have bad allergies, and I didnt have ANY problems while pregnant. Guess everyones different.
