You should call your doctor if you haven't been able to keep anything down for 24 hours.

This is nothing to worry about. A woman's body is AMAZING! It takes care of the baby before it takes care of you :) There are many women that have extreme morning sickness and their babies are just fine. However, if you are having symptoms that are more severe than regular flu symptoms or if you "just don't feel right", then do call your doctor.

Castor oil at 35 weeks 3tablespoons?

Castor oil is not a recommended dietary supplement for pregnant mothers, since it can induce vomiting and diarrhea. You could wait until your baby is as fully formed as s/he can be in the womb, and wait for your body to listen to the baby's signal that it's time to be born. Natural labour will follow. Human gestation is normal between 37 and 42 weeks.

Is diarrhea a sign of pregnancy or miscarriage?

Answerno---I think it possibly could be a sign. My baby stopped growing 6w2d and my diarrhea started that day, but I did not miscarry for 3 weeks. Once the baby stopped growing, I had diarrhea for 7 days straight - and that never happens to me.Now I am pregnant again & I hit 6w2d yesterday and my diarrhea started again. The doctors feel my baby will not make it based on my 6w1d ultrasound, so this diarrhea could be a sign in my 2nd miscarriage.

Castor Oil will only make you have explosive diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Your baby will come when it is ready. Make sure you are getting enough rest and stay hydrated.

Tummy upset, diarrhea, vomiting and flu like symptoms due to bacteria growing in it.

You and the baby should be fine. But if this is a normal thing you do a lot, you should get some help so it doesn't continue during pregnancy. It could harm the baby if you are throwing up and not getting any nutrition to the baby. If it was just for those two weeks, you should be fine. Just stop doing it now that you know.
