Anybody ever get rotavirus while very pregnant? My two year old had it at the beginning of the week for the second time this year.<br><br>
Now I have a full blown case....

My ds got the rotovirus last January and was even hospitalized. I wasn't pregnant ( am this year though!!!) but I know that the biggest concern with the rotovirus is dehdryation. You vomit so much and then get dehydrated and then the diarrhea comes. WIth a child, it is hard to FORCE liquids and keep them down. But as an adult, you can be more deligent about taking small doses of liquids to keep hydrated. That would be my advice, to just try adn stay hydrated and try to rest even more than usual. Hopefully you can get someone to help you with your toddler!!!<br><br>
Hugs and I hope you get over this quickly!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Oh, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s I'm sorry. That must be so rough. I hope you're taking good care of yourself and getting lots of help.<br><br>
Three weeks before my DD was born my son and my husband both got it. My DH was still recovering when I was in labor. I hope you get over it quickly and get the help you need!
