Work in nhs and usually they very hot on staying off for alloyed time. I presume this won't be the same if its morning sickness making me sick?

Morning sickness isn't catching, at least I hope not grin.

No I don't think it applies to morning sickness. As long as you're sure it is morning sickness, and I suppose you can never really be sure. Check with your manager, or with infection control

No it doesn't, I ended up working in between throwing up every few hours with hyperemesis until dd's birth at 32 weeks, it honesty gets easier to throw up, ignore the sicky feeling and get on with normal life within a few weeks. You get used to it and its nowhere near as bad as the first few days/weeks if it does continue, so it shouldn't disrupt work fingers crossed. smile

No, that's a precaution against spreading infection, so doesn't apply to morning sickness.

Sadly not or I would've been off for over 2 months! But obviously not infectious so it didn't really cross my mind that would apply.

Though if you ask an adminoid/find an officious infection control type they might tie themselves in knots & decide there's no way of knowing for sure that it's not..!
