    Default dehydration in early prenancy

    hello all this is my 3rd pregnancy but this has never happened to me before this prenancy has been so different to my daughters.
    i was up at the hospital and they were going to put a drip in but didnt end up putting on in and sent me home with a bunch of pills im still having alot of trouble drinking but i was wondering ifanyone knew wat happenes coz the hospital didnt tell me much about it at all.

    Can I ask what their reason for putting you on the drip was? Is it morning sickness.

    Dehydration can be very dangerous for both you and your baby. It is very important that you make sure that you drink plenty of fluids. Why are you having trouble drinking? Perhaps I can help. Also what are the tablets that the hospital gave you? I can’t think of anything that may help with dehydration

    I was in hospital for 4 days with DD1 & 2 trips with DD2 one for 4 days one for 6. On a drip all 3 times due to severe m/s. I don't remember doing a urine test to pick it up though.
    I never heard of any medication to help with the dehydration, just to try to help with the morning sickness.
    You could've been given Folate. It's supposed to be taken 12 weeks before & after concieving to help make sure there are no spinal problems.
    Gastrolyte is good for helping with dehydration. You get it from the chemist.
