Well I haven't gotten any better thought out the day. I've had a horrible headache all day which travels down to my neck making it stiff and very achey. The rest off my body is also very achey. I'm running a fever that stays between 100.2 and 100.7 I haven't been able to drink or eat all day. Ive barely been off the couch except to pee. And I haven't peed in over 2 hours. I keep getting dizzy. The meds I got are not helping.
And to top it off I haven't felt the baby move in hours so that's also worrying me.
So do yall think I should go to the er or just wait it out?
Please help I hate going to er for something not an emergency.

You're dehydrated, for one. You also have low blood sugar. Force some fluids down, preferably some juice.

Go get a huge thing of water and force yourself to drink it all. Water cures a lot of issues. If that doesn't work after a couple hours id go to ER

 you need some hydration and you need to get your blood sugar back up. Drink some juice and eat something small. I think you would be ok at home but if you are REALLY worried and you feel something is wrong then go to the ER. It's better than you worrying all night.

Drink Gatorade or something with electrolites in it. when you are sick like that water can actually make you throw up. plus by drinking those sport drinks you may get some sugar in you. It is going around pretty bad right now and being sick while pregnant is horrible.. How far along are you? my doctor says not to really worry too much until you are past a certain week i think like 28 . and even then baby feels what you feel so if you feel poopy and tired so does baby... rest up and feel better

Ok, I don't want to freak you out, but did they check you for meningitis?

the other thing you could do is call your dr and see what they think. But be sure to drink juice and water!

I went to er last night I couldn't take the pain anymore. They gave me Tylenol and ran two bags of fluid through iv. I feel much better today.
