Re: Flu While Preg!!! Please Help

I had the flu while pregnant. My baby and I were both fine I was about 20 weeks. The important thing is to stay really hydrated. If you can't keep anything down call your doctor right away. They may want to give you something to help your fluid intact and monitor you closely so you don't dehydrate. Also if you haven't seen a docor yet I would suggest seeing one so that they can watch you closely and help keep your flu under control. I went to my doctor shortly after I started the flu and they gave me some medicine that helped me alot. Also if you've had a fever for awhile you should at least let your doctor know how high and how long. Also get plenty of rest.

With my experience the weak feeling lasted about a week. Most of my other symptoms went away by then. I was really nauseas for awhile but they gave me some pills at the doctors office that made it so I could at least keep fluids down. Hope this helps some.
