As soon as you can't keep fluids down you should contact your GP or if out of hours call NHS direct and they will be able to advise. You risk getting severely dehydrated if it isn't curbed soon and then you face being hospitalised with a drip etc. Don't put it off!!

Yup as soon as you can't keep fluids down. Hope you feel better soon!

Sorry to hear you're not feeling too well, hope you get to see someone soon and get it sorted quickly xx

Thank you so much for the advice ladies. About 8pm I managed half a bowl of soup and then sipped about 350-400ml of water throughout the evening, it was touch and go but I kept it down! Not enough but it was something!
I've gone off so much food, I want everything in sight but when it actually comes down to it, I just can't physically stomach it - meat being the worse especially chicken! It all just smells off to me!
Let's see what today brings!
JJ - you are a star! Thank you so much for your post. Luckily I'm not working at the moment (we got back from Oz 8 weeks ago and taking some time out before starting to look and renovating our house) but it also means that we are staying with in-laws for a while yet and they don't know (planning to tell them tomorrow after an early scan) it's so hard trying to be secretive while retching!

nothing else to add except just eat whatever you fancy or can stomach. I couldn't face lots of food this time round including my usual fruit and veg favourites, Ended up on a very bland carb diet and only drinking as was all I could face. When I spoke to midwife she was of the opinion that in the short term it is fine to just eat what you can stomach as better to eat than not. After the 12ish week mark I found I could once again face foods that I couldn't before.

Not a great start to the day..... I haven't been able to keep down anything again so far.
I don't feel like I should contact anyone just yet as I was ok last night and that could be enough to get me through the coming days by making the most of the evenings!

The medications that can be prescribed are safe to take as mentioned above, but they are unlicensed. Obviously it is unethical to test medications on pregnant ladies, and so there is no research for them in this specific situation. Many, many ladies have safely taken them though, but it is your personal decision. A good GP/nurse practitioner will advise you of this (as it is good practice), but in all honesty from a personal point of view as well as professional, I would be seen and would take them if I was in your situation. Don't let it become worse x
