Stomach pain and vomiting in the night

I'm 18 weeks pregnant and have been having some problems with acid indigestion and nausea which had been improving. But last night, and one night last week, I woke up in the middle of the night with an intense burning pain in my stomach. It was bad enough that it had me rolling around on the bed. The pain was in my actual stomach, not lower down or anything. After a few minutes I needed to be sick so got up. It was so acidic that my throat feels burned today and didn't appear to have any food in it hmm After I'd been sick I felt better, although my throat is still very sore. Anyone any ideas on what could be causing it? The first time I thought maybe a virus but it seems to be repeating at random. TIA smile

I am 36 weeks pregnant and was in hospital with something similar last week for 2 days and again for 3 days this week. Consultant doesn't really know what is causing it, have had bloods and swabs but no real signs of infection. Keytones were off the charts this time so had to be on a drip for a few days until it stabilised. I think they basically are just treating it as one of those pregnancy things...manage it, but can't eliminate it. If you are repeatedly sick, just watch out for dehydration, I dehydrated very fast Sunday night to Monday morning...I was only sick 3 or 4 times, but by the time I got to hospital, they couldn't get a vein for the drip.

I would definitely make an app with your midwife asap too, let her check you and the baby out.

Hope it gets better soon.

Thanks for that StrangeTown, but sorry you went through all that, sounds awful! I was luckily only sick once last night but I'll keep an eye on it in case it gets worse and make an appointment with the midwife.
