Sick Toddler Me Next

I am 10 weeks pregnant and have a 17-month old who has been vomiting all morning. She is doing better now, and had no fever, but is sleeping it off. I was wondering if anyone knew the risks that the flu carries for me and my unborn baby if I were to copntract the bug as well. It is impossible for me to avoid spending time and snuggling with my sick little gal as she needs my care and comfort. Does anyone know how I can avoid getting sick while caring for her, or is it too late already?

hi flower.momma i had a really bad case of flu when i was pregnant with my second child, it was so bad that my daughter got admitted to hospital when she caught it off me, although i was really well it did not affect my unborn child and he was fit and healthy when he was born full term. So try not to worry to much, hope this helps

I got a flu shot while pregnant. It may be too late for this round, but check with your doctor. Also, frequent hand washing helps tons! Good luck.

Thank you guys. I thought it would probably be ok, but you know how it is when your pregnant. I'm paranoid about everything.

I had a stomach bug in my first trimester. I ended up in the hospital for IV fluids. About 24 hours and 5 bags of fluid later.. I felt like a new person. You will be fine. Watch for dehydration and a fever. Those are the two that might need intervention. Throwing up is usually not the true flu (so a flu shot would most likely not have helped anyway). Hang in there and drink lots!

My 17 mth old just got over a gastro virus ( which I thought was the flu initially) and I'm 34 wks pregnant. I cuddled her throughout it all and got puked on and thankfully didn't catch it so chances are you may not either. Good luck!
