drink plenty, go to gp, and take a warm sample with you in a very airtight container. [eugh emoticon]

nothing is staying down. if i drink or eat it comes back up

if nothing is staying down you need phone midwife for advice, try sucking ice cubes/ ice lolly to try and get some liquid into you.

Don't worry too much about the baby, the things are like leeches and will suck you dry of any goodness they can get. I mean that in a reassuring way - if you are not taking anyhting in any reserves will go to the baby before they go to you.

NHS direct is a good idea, they may want you to go into A&E and go on a drip if you haven't taken anything in for 3 days.

hope your feeling better soon . with any luck it'll be just a virus and you'll be over the worst smile

Glad you've got some help. Fingers crossed the bug goes away and you don't have morning sickness either!
