I'm 13 weeks pregnant and the stomach bug just hit last night :( I thought it was morning sickness until well, it affected the other end. Then my son came in crying he puked, poor thing always gets sick on his bday :( so anyways, I can't even keep a sip of water down, how can I tell if I'm dehydrated?

If your worried call a dr but ice chips help. I had severe morning sickness on top of flu so I made pedialite ice cubes and broke em into chips. It helped and I didn't dehydrate. Gatorade would work too for this method. Suck on the chips all day. Hope you both feel better.

I'm also 13 weeks, and when i drink water with an empty stomach i feel like i have to puke. Try to eat a bit. But that makes me feel sick too. I lie down for a bit, after about 5 mins I feel better. Not great, but better. 14 weeks is the 2nd trimester, so just keep trying to hold it off. 

I have also been constipated until the last few days, and, well, hell broke lose. All normal. Gotta keep going if you can, it's not fun. We should feel better soon!! Best of luck!

 My dr. had me take Emetrol to help with the throwing up.  I'd call him first thing and ask.  And try to drink anything.  Sometimes 7-up or sprite is easier to keep down.  ....feel better.

I'd go for some ginger ale. Diarrhea and constipation are normal. But you need to keep fliuds up. Soup and crackers are always something i swear by. Keep up on water, or half water half juice, or ginger ale. It always helps me!
