Annoying stomach bug

Well Sunday morning I woke up puking and had 1 instance of diarrhea (DS had diarrhea last week) so I went to L&D because contractions had also started. I got an IV, phenegran shot, pills for diarrhea and labs pulled to check on a bunch of stuff and it was determined to be viral. Monday I rested all day and Tuesday I went back to OBGYN. I was feeling fine until mid afternoon Tuesday when I got nauseous again and took another phenegran, and hour later I vomited again. Last night I had a great night's sleep, DH took DS to preschool this morning and I figured I had a good morning of rest, nope. When I got up to use the rest room I had diarrhea again! I am barely peeing and when I do it is dark so I know I am getting dehydrated and I am only 32 weeks along so I have to suffer through this for my little one but I want to eat real food and water makes me gag right now. I have an NST scheduled today at the hospital so at least I can get stuff taken care of again I just worry they are going to make me stay overnight (it was an option Sunday night).

Hi Rangerchick,

I am so sorry you are feeling yucky. :( Please keep us updated.

Actually besides having to run to the bathroom every few hours I feel fine currently. I have been constipated my entire pregnancy so this is totally different for me. I did read something that constipation can lead to diarrhea so maybe this is just my body trying to get stuff fixed finally. Or maybe I just drank too many liquids the last few days. I just hope I can make the 15 min. drive to the hospital, I tried to drive yesterday and only made it 3 min before nausea turned me back.
