Should I?

I have been fighting the stomach bug since Sunday and it is starting to get worse. My son first got it Wednesday then my daughter on Saturday and then my husband and I both got it Sunday. I only threw up a few times and had a few loose stools then I was able to eat a little bit. I woke up still sick yesterday and was unable to keep much down. I think the only thing that did stay down was a handful of crackers. Today is much worse. Everything I have put in my mouth has come out one way or another. I have tried waiting a few hours between throwing up and eating and that still makes no difference. I have been sipping on sprite and trying to eat some saltines only to throw up within a few minutes. So my question is, should I go to the ER to get an IV and maybe some phenegren to help with the vomiting? BTW, I am 15 weeks.

Thanks mamas!

I haven't. She only works half days and the clinic is now closed for the day.

I would probably go to the ER then and just let them know you have been able to keep anything down. Better safe than sorry!
