Food Poisoning During Pregnancy

So you're feeling sick -- could it be food poisoning? We've got all the info you want to know about food poisoning during pregnancy, including how to tell if you have it and how to keep baby safe while you're on the mend.

What do other pregnant moms do when they have food poisoning?

“I wouldn't have thought it was food poisoning, except that everyone who was with us (five people) got sick. It was awful. I stayed hydrated and was only sick for about a half an hour and then was able to take some Tums and go to sleep.”

“I got food poisoning when I was 35 weeks pregnant. I couldn't keep anything down, including water, for hours. I ended up calling the on-call doctor, and I had to go into Labor and Delivery to get IV fluids and medication.”

“I had to go to L&D last night for food poisoning. At least that's what we think it was, since my cultures haven't come back yet. They gave me three bags of fluid, some Phenergan and glucose. My baby looked good, and my fever went down while I was in the hospital, so they discharged me to go home. Besides feeling like absolute crap, the process and the experience were top-notch. The doctors and nurses were amazing.”

“I had it at about four months. It was so awful. I was throwing up all night and the next day. I went to the doctor, and everything was fine. It's amazing what our babies can endure. Stay hydrated, and rest up.”

Are there any other resources for food poisoning?
