    Default Being preggo and sick just isn't fair

    As if the morning sickness wasn't bad enough, now I've caught my kiddos stomach bug. I'm so nauseous and tired between the illness and the preg that all I want to do is lay here. I think I drank a gallon of ginger tea yesterday!

    Anyone have any great preg-friendly ideas to help me feel better? I can't call in sick this week at work. I'm a prof and this week is midterms. Can't bail on those!

    Ugh, I'm so sorry! That is truly unfair! I don't have any ideas but hoping you feel better quick.

    You might just have to get the doctor to write a prescription for Zofran, that will at least help with the vomiting.

    that sucks! Can someone take the kids all day so you can just nap/relax? Peppermint can calm a stomach sometimes, so peppermint candy?

    That's terrible. At least stomach viruses tend to be fast and furious. So, the "virus" part of it should be over fairly soon. Vitamin B (massive amounts) can help with nausea.

    Ugh I'm so sorry! I got the worst stomach flu when I was preggo with my second and it is beyond miserable...i have never thrown up so much in my whole life. My only suggestion is to make sure you are getting enough fluids especially if you're throwing up.
