Both my kids just had the stomach flu and now they seemed to have passed it on to me. (Not normal MS trust me). I have been up since 3am and haven't been able to keep anything down. Everytime I take a sip of something at least half comes right back up. So at what point shoudl I be concerned or call the dr? I've never had to deal with this in pregnancy before ugh!

Does your doctors office have a nurse hotline? I usually call when I have questions like that and they offer advice, or if they are concerned, they schedule an appt.

Try taking a tablespoon of water every 5 minutes or so, if you aren't keeping fluids down. This is what I have to do with my son who can't keep anything down when he has a stomach bug.

I hope it's just a 24hr thing and you feel better real soon!

I would say that you should call if you aren't feeling better within 24 hours.

I would def call if you aren't feeling better tomorrow.

Do you have any Zofran? You could always try that for the nausea so you can keep some food down.

I think I would wait for 24 hours and see how I felt. I hope it is short lived!

I've gotten t w all of my pregnancies, including last week. . Mines never lasted more 24 hours so I've never worried about it. If it lasts longer than that I'd start worrying about dehydration mainly.
