    Evening girls

    I know I haven't stopped complaining about my sickness, but it seems to just be getting worse :(

    I'm at the point where even the things I'm craving aren't staying down. The only thing I can keep down is water. I feel so sick and so miserable! I can't stay on my feet for more than a few minutes at a time because even that makes me throw up.

    For the past 2 weeks, my life has been spent going from bed to the bathroom, or from the sofa to the bathroom. Its been a nightmare :(

    Anyway, I was complaining about it to my mum who told me to phone the midwife, which I did. She said she's a bit concerned that I'm not even able to hold the food I'm craving. She told me to go to my GP first thing tomorrow to see if I'm dehydrated, and if I am, I'll have to go in and be put on a drip!

    I've never been in hospital in my entire life. For outpatient appts yes, but never have I had to stay in. I'm really quite afraid in case it turns out I am dehydrated and have to have a hospital stay :( x

    Awww hun, I'm sorry your feeling so awful.

    I know it will be rubbish to have to go to hospital but if you are dehydrated then it will be best for you and bubba.

    I hope you feel better soon hun.

    Aww that sucks!!, have they not given you any anti sickness tablets or anything? Don't worry to much if you do have to go in, i was in overnight when i first found out because i'd not kept anything down for over a week and barely even water they will just want to give you enough fluids to make sure you and the baby are okay. I was only there overnight

    Good luck, let us know how you get on :hugs:

    Hope you're ok... but if you do have to go in to hospital just take in loads of books, music etc to keep you occupied. I'm a nurse and honestly hospitals aren;t that scary...just very boring for the patients! You'll probably find you'll feel a lot better after having some fluids as being dehydrated just makes you feel even worse. A friend of mine had hyperemesis (severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy) and was in and out of hospital from weeks 6-13, but after that she started feeling a lot better and is now fine :) I know you don't want to take any medications, but I really believe the anti-nausea meds nowadays are very safe so it might be worth chatting to your doctor and midwife about them to see if you're happy trying them x

    Sorry to hear this hon, I really hope you feel better soon. As someone said before, I know you don't like taking any medications but if the doctor says it's the best thing then please do it, they wouldn't give you it if it wasn't for the best xxxxxx

    Good luck today hope you don't have to go in to hospital although my sister went in as she was dehydrated and when she came out she was so much better she managed to sleep and was able to hold food down and she only gets sickness every now and again! X

    Good luck for today, Jayjay. Fingers crossed the doctor helps you to start to feel much better soon. I think the fear of going into hospital is so great as its an unknown experience to you. If you need to go in, then just go with the flow and allow them to look after you. You can't feel much worse than you do already, surely? Let us know how you get on. xx

    Good luck at the docs today JayJay - hope you manage to stay out of the hospital, and like others have said, it's probably about time to think about some anti-sickness meds for you and little one.
