Worried something might be wrong

Looking for advice againblush
I'm 34 weeks today and really struggling again with 'morning' sickness I literally can't keep anything down ! It's disgusting. I feel ridiculously tired, I slept for 12 hours last night but can barely stand I'm so exhausted !! I can't even focus sad
I've never felt that much movement from baby (maybe feel her twice a day?) I'm worried something might be wrong!!

To reassure you - it is more than likely 'just' a stomach bug - I had a terrible one at 19 weeks.

Or maybe it's that your tummy is getting increasingly full of baby, and peaks in hormones can make you feel sick at any point in pregnancy (I'm currently 37 weeks and I feel overstuffed and nauseous towards the end of the day).

BUT if you're worried, call your mw/walk in centre although it's almost definitely 'nothing' they are always happy to reassure you. Good luck!

Thanks pink! I just need some reassurance I think. I've always measured small and I'm constantly worried about baby, just want her out now aha!!

Call your midwife my love.

They won't care if they decide it's just a tummy bug but they will want to see you if you're worried and if you're feeling reduced movements.

You should have a number for them on your notes.
If you don't have a number for your midwife/community midwife then call your delivery suite or whatever number you have been told to ring when you think you're in labour. Tell them everything. The vomiting, reduced movements, obscene weakness etc. They may want to see you but being honest about the vomiting means they can choose to see you away from the ward and other pregnant women if they're worried it might be a bug and so passed on.

Please. Call your midwife.

I will dinosaur thanks for replying. I hadn't even thought about not going straight in if I have a bug, I was going to go straight to maternity triage! Thank you for reminding me about that shock

do call OP - I've been in triage for reduced movement and frantic movement - if baby is not following normal pattern it's important it is checked out. I'd say that sickness bug or not - but you may be dehydrated and need some extra help processing the bug through your system. Do be honest and tell them about the sickness though.

Morning sickness can 'reappear' around this time for two reasons - lack of space and increased hormones before birth. I know I've felt more nauseous in the lead up to 38 weeks (I'm 38+1) because of the two factors above not to mention lack of sleep which makes me feel gaggy and the unbearable heat.

Always get checked out if in doubt. But just to reassure you somewhat I felt like I was constantly backwards and forwards to the midwife at this stage with one thing or another!
