Couple of days ago Mr 3.5 started vomiting, diarrhea and low grade fever. He coped alright and is not recovered. I think it's was a mild gastro.
Now I have caught his bug.
Miss 21 months is so far fine, but I am worried she'll get it too. But from memory younger kids are immune to gastro if they are up to date with immunizations?
Also I am pregnant and so far I have vomited 8 times in the last 10 hours with mild fever and all the other sheebang. How long would you wait before seeing a doctor?

Immunization against Gastro?

Kids are only immunized for Rotavirus ( a Gastro bug) but there are hundreds of different causes of Gastro unfortunately.
As for you, if you can keep your fluids up that's the best thing to do.

Oh you poor thing, i couldn't think of anything worse while pregnant.
My DS had it over the weekend, and DH has been up all night with it last night, but no vomiting... I am just waiting for it to be my turn now.
If i got it and vomiting that many times TBH id prob go see the doc, just to be checked out as we get dehydrated a lot easier while pregnant as it is.
Hope you feel better asap!! Are you allowed to take electrolytes while pregnant? If you can id get onto them.

If you can keep some fluids down you don't need to see a doctor. Yes you dehydrate more quickly when pregnant, but if you can keep yourself hydrated then you just need to ride it out. Signs of dehydration in adults include extreme thirst, irritability and/or confusion, very dry mouth, skin and mucus membranes, no urination, and sunken eyes.
As a pp said, the immunisation is only for rotavirus, as there is a high admission rate for rotavirus in children under the age of 2 years old.
I hope your family feels better soon. It's certainly making the rounds.

Unfortunately immunisations don't cover the gastro bug, unless it is rotavirus. There are hundreds of variations of the gastro bug so it is impossible to vaccinate against.
When I was 14 weeks pregnant with our second I caught a horrible bug off of DD1. After 12 hours of stomach cramps, a lot of vomiting and the inability to keep even a suck of an ice block down I went to the ED and was given a shot of maxolon which prevented anymore vomiting. I just couldn't cope with it anymore and I was worried about bub.
