    Default What do I do?

    It's 3am and I've just been sick everywhere and now have a fever and chills. I'm in London by myself, DH is on a plane back to Melbourne and I don't have any friends or family to help with DS (11 months). I don't know what to do .

    Try and clean up the mess, take something to get your fever down, have a shower and try to get some sleep (put a bucket next to your bed). See how you go over the next few hours, take small sips of water every 5mins or so, if you still not good try and get a doctor to visit you at home.

    Eta: Hopefully it doesn't last long and you're feeling better soon.

    Hugs, there is nothing worse than being sick with nobody to help. I agree with PP try some panadol if you can tolerate it and a cool shower. Can you get an after hours dr to visit the house? If not can someone take care of your little one tomorrow.

    Sorry you're not feeling well. Can you organise a nanny to come over to help with your LO? Even if it's just changing nappies and bringing him to you for feeds (if he's bf) it might help.

    You'll still be there so not knowing them may not be such a big deal.

    If you are in a hotel, can you call the reception and ask if they have anything like panadol as you have a toddler, so unable to go to the chemist.
    Or call Reception and ask if they have a DR that does house calls. Could it be food poisoning or gastro ?

    Sorry you're feeling crap.... I agree with Happy Mum2's advice. I would also message your hubby. Surely he knows someone through work that could help you out if needed? Companies that hire ex-pats often have support services when they move to their country.

    Thanks ladies. Cleaned it all up (then sick again in toilet ), have had a little water but just came back up. Too week to have a shower and DS has woken and won't let me leave. I had thought about the nhs number and a dr coming by, will see how I am in a few hours. My mom has offered to come but I'd be better by the time she got here. Was thinking about posting on my local mom group to see if anybody could help. Kind of want DH to come home . DS threw up during the week but seemed fine so I didn't think he was actually unwell. Maybe that's what I've got. Still breastfeeding.

    If can climb into shower and just sit at the bottom for bit to help cool you down. Even feed in there if you have too.

    Just have the tiniest sips or water or suck on a bit of ice.

    If you're throwing up water there's a danger of dehydration. A doc can give you a shot to stop the vomiting. It should be safe for breastfeeding as I was told it was safe when I was pregnant. Do you have any icy poles or hydralite? If so take small sips/bites each time. You need sugars/salts keep your electrolytes up if needed.
