Mar 09, 2016 - 8 comments

Have any of you ladies had the flu during pregnancy?  My tummy hurts like a tummy aches,  can't keep water down, and iv vomited about 6 times now since 7am... I go from cold to warm, when would it be concerned to go to the doctor? Iv never had the flu during any of my pregnancies so it's the first.

Has anything changed yet? Can you keep water down? My main concern would be you getting dehydration. When you get hot do you sweat?

I got done vomiting for the 7th time about 15 minutes ago at the most. I get hot and cold chills but not sweating.

If you aren't sweating, that is a sign of dehydration. I would probably go into the ER. Better to be safe than sorry! They will probably check the baby and give you IV fluids too!

They might also give you and anit-nausea medication.

Watch for a fever especially, fevers are not good while pregnant and dehydration can put you into preterm labor so make sure you're not dehydrated, if you're concerned at all call your OB!

I had the flu early on in this pregnancy. It was awful!! Keep hydrated and the temp down like the girls say. Neither are good. I had temp of 103 last week and like KT said preterm labor is a concern the nurses and doctors had. Hope you get to feeling better really soon!!

Hi ladies! Here's my updated.
So I went to the ER and checked in at 3 : 40pm they get me back there and the doctor asked me what I would like him to do and I said I need fluids! I'm feeling dehydrated and very week since 1pm.  He said ok well we need blood and urine.  So they came in and they did that and put in my iv. They gave me Zofran that first time but it didn't last long lol. The second time before I left they gave me phernigan and it made me feel loopy and sleepy very quickly. after getting the iv I stopped vomiting and I also stopped when  they gave me both of those anti nausea meds.  They said that it was the bad case of pregnancy symptoms yesterday. I feel so much better. also I got home at around 7:30pm.  I never had a fever also,  so I was happy with that.
