QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am currently 7 weeks with my third child. I have a UTI that was diagnosed on Thursday.

The doctor also told me from picking up my other two children I have pulled the muscles in my stomach. I have been vomiting non stop and am having pain in my stomach at the lower part.

I was wondering whether to wait until Monday when I go back to the doctor or go to the hospital today.

ANSWER

If you are vomiting non-stop, please call your provider right away. S/he should be available 24/7 for things like this, and will advise you how to proceed.

But now that you are pregnant, it is no longer ok to pick up your other children. Carrying one child at a time is plenty!
