This is my 3rd round of some sort of stomach bug since Thanksgiving.  I'm 33 weeks pregnant and have SO much to do before we leave town for Christmas.  I NEED to be healthy, now.  I was throwing up the day after Thanksgiving and then knocked out for a couple of days afterwards.  Then last Tuesday I had diarrhea every 10 minutes for about 6 hours.  I couldn't even change my 2 yo's diapers that day I was so sick (luckily my awesome big kids helped out!).  It was scary because I had a lot of ab pain and contractions too.  Just as I was thinking it might be time to call my DH to come home and take me to the ER, the diarrhea and everything else stopped.  That night I threw up a couple of times, but then was able to eat the next day.  Then yesterday the diarrhea started again.  But this time, it's just annoying.  I'm really tired, but I don't feel like I have the flu, yk?  I've been eating little bits of bananas and rice and drinking water and gatorade, but everything just makes me sick and nothing sounds good.  I NEED to take in some calories/protein but I just can't do it.  And I've never had anything like IBS or any other things that would cause GI symptoms without an infection.


I've been really good since Thanksgiving about taking my vitamins and extra probiotics (not so good before that bag.gif).  Please tell me what else I can do!


Oh, and baby seems just fine.  Lots of ninja practice going on in there!  :)




eta: also, my kids had a stomach thing right before Thanksgiving, but no one else has been sick since then.
