I had morning sickness in the first trimester that was definitely morning sickness, and it went away at 10 weeks. I have felt fine since. I'm now 17 weeks.
Then on Saturday, all of a sudden, I had this wave of nausea and dizziness and nearly fainted. DH had to take me home and since then I have been in bed all day every day, just feeling horrendous, like I'm dying. The nausea is extreme - much worse than the morning sickness that I had. I also feel faint and woozy, like I couldn't walk down the street on my own without wanting to lie down. I have zero appetite and am forcing down a few crackers and fruit for bub.
My ob is away and I spoke with the on-call ob who said it might be food poisoning (but I have no vomiting or diarrhea). Yesterday I was no better so I went to the GP, who was very vague and said it could be "a virus". My blood pressure and pulse were normal and bub's heartbeat is fine. I'm still no better today so I rang the ob again who prescribed maxolon and Zofran and said it might be hyperemesis gravidarum, wait and see.
I am really worried because I'm not getting any better - normally if you have a stomach bug or virus you start feeling better. I am terrified of it being HG as how am I going to go back to work on Monday like this? I can hardly walk from bed to bathroom.
Any ideas? I'm not really convinced by the GP or the ob. Has anyone had a similar experience? DH thinks I have a bug and I'm just taking ages to get better due to being pregnant.
