    Hi, I was advised that the most " dangerous" thing for the baby was having a high temperature which can usually be lowered with paracetamol. Otherwise no major problems. I guess you need to try to eat something though, of course easier said than done when you feel rubbish. Hope your feeling better soon x

    Hi pet,
    The doctors arent exactly helpful are they. Im pretty sure your baby is okay in there but try to drinking. If you go 24-48 hours without siping water or eating dont bother with the doc, call your maternity hospital.
    I called my midwife last week when I had puked every half hour for 12 hours and she assured me that baby was fine but to try and get fluids. That doesnt exactly make you feel any better. The last post was spot on as well, its the high temperature that worries them.

    Have a cup of tea without milk with a spoonfull of honey in it.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Laura.

    Both times I was pregnant, I had the flu right before I found out. I'm sure I took loads of stuff I shouldn't have too. :shock: Glad you're feeling better!
