The irony was that I saw the midwife for my 25 week check on Wednesday and was saying how good it felt that pregnancy sickness (of which I had a lot!) had finally stopped. 24 hours later and the Noro struck (this is even more unpleasant than the general pregnancy sicking!).
It's reassuring to know that the baby is unaffected by it, it's just so miserable to feel this drained and rubbish. Hopefully a good sleep will help.
Five days in and I still feel like death. It's happening less regularly but still having d&v and feel like I've been hit by a bus. All I've eaten in the past three days is little bits of toast, managing to drink water and dioralyte.
So miserable though, just had a little cry. Any idea when I might feel even vaguely human again? Can those who have had norovirus whilst pregnant give me some hope that it (the noro) will be over soon?
I had norovirus at 17 weeks (now 25 weeks) and the sickness was so bad I had to be admitted to hospital for fluids. Having both D&V come out at the same time was pretty darn awful! Thank goodness we have two toilets and the one I used had a sink so close to the loo I could throw up in that at the same time!
I felt like crap for a good week or so afterwards, my whole head and neck ached from the force of throwing up too. It then put my pregnancy sickness and generally feeling like poop back again. I felt better around 2 weeks later.
Little sips of water but often, try and eat as this will help. The boring cheese sandwich I had in the hospital was heaven to me (after anti sickness meds!).
I'm now semi paranoid about getting it again....arg!
Thanks for the advice - I've managed bits of toast, but nothing much is staying down. Getting a bit worried about dehydration (I was admitted with HG and dehydration at 9 weeks so a bit paranoid) but I've managed to keep water down for about 50 mins now so hoping that's being absorbed.
It just feels so miserable and never ending!
You said it brought your pregnancy sickness back - was that pretty much straight away? Just wondering if that's what's happened here. I had d&v thurs - sun morning fairly non stop, but some respite yesterday and now the vomiting has started again this evening.
I had norovirus in my first pregnancy and a couple of different sickness bugs in my second. Babies weee fine both times but by god it takes it out of you. Rest up as much as possible and keep your fluid intake up. Hope you feel better soon.
