    I had gastro at 28 weeks pregnant, it was not pleasant but I didn't need to go to the doctor or hospital or anything.

    The most important thing it to try and keep hydrated. Don't worry about food, just plenty of fluids, little sips at a time. And lots of rest.

    I had gastro at 27 weeks this pregnancy, and it put me in hospital in pre-term labour. They managed to stop it with fluids and drugs etc (I'm currently 37+3 weeks), but they said it was because I was so severely dehydrated that it triggered labour.

    Hope you feel better soon

    Default Gastro during pregnancy. Possible TMI

    I had gastro when I was about 14 weeks preg with my last dd!!
    It was bad!! I couldn't keep water or anything down!! DP ended up taking me to the doctors cause I was really lethargic and dehydrated!!
    The doctor gave me Maxalon to stop me from vomitting! I was surprised that when I took it that the water I took it with stayed down!!! But Maxalon really helped me!!
    If you can get the vomitting to stop maybe get to a doc and ask for some maxalon

    Default Gastro during pregnancy. Possible TMI

    I had gastro at around 28 weeks. It was horrible and I was having stomach cramps regally that we're painful. I did go to hospital as i thought it best to be safe than sorry. I was fine but they checked all my stats, my dehydration levels, bt's etc. maybe I over reacted, but I didnt care. It gave me peace of mind.

    I have only vomited once. I called a chemist and they just suggested hydralite, which when I am having Powerade I don't see a lot of difference. There probably is but I'm not terribly fussed right now.

    Powerade has sugar in it. If you have the other end of gastro (sorry tmi!) the sugar will make it worse

    That's a good point.

    I might go and grab some then. I have to drive home tomorrow so having some ready is probably better.

    I had gastro midway through my last pregnancy...it was so awful. I was vomiting up bile and had the worst diarrhoea. I rang the middy and she just advised to rest up and keep hydrated, which I did. I didn't have gastralyte or hydrolyte (sp?), so just used powerade. I was worried about my baby from all of the vomiting etc, but the middy said the baby is fine during bouts of gastro (unless the mother becomes severely dehydrated).
