Thanks - I have no idea if this is UC or a virus - I think it might be both. I have thrown up everytime I have tried to eat or drink. I am heading to the ER. So scared - never been to the hospital for UC or really for anything.
It will be fine! They'll run some blood work, hook you up to an IV (which actually really starts to make you feel better because you feel so crappy being dehydrated), probably give you some IV anti nausea meds. It will really help! Also, every time I was in the ER while pregnant, they did an ultrasound just to be sure everything was ok, and it's always fun to see the baby. Since it's later in the pregnancy, they may just listen for the heartbeat instead, but that's always reassuring to hear, too. Good luck!
