I think I may have food poisoning. I had tuna from the fridge, it must have been in there for 3 days or so.

 

I didn't eat any, I just tasted it and then spit it out - it was yucky.

 

About an hour later I'm having terrible stomach pains and diarrhea.  I also have a slight nauseous feeling and headache.

 

I took some probiotics and immediately the diarrhea stopped, but I still feel nauseous.

 

I'm 27 weeks pregnant and nervous about getting a bacteria. Anyone out there had this experience while preg?

Are you feeling any better today?

When I was pregnant with my second son, I caught a nasty stomach bug and then later on in the pregnancy had diarrhea so much that I was worried. Then in this pregnancy I caught a bad stomach bug from my kids at about 14 weeks along. Not food poisoning but similar..?

If you're not feeling better today I would give a call to the nurse, but try not to worry. :-)

Feeling ok, but still have that queasy feeling. I'm not eating much either b/c I don't want to get the diarrhea again.

 

I don't think it's a stomach bug, because I haven't been around people in at least 4 days. I'm still not sure its food poisoning either because, like I said, I didn't eat the tuna - just spit it out.

 

It feels like food poisoning though. I'm wondering if I should be worried about the baby?
