    I wouldnt worry to much about eating if you arent hungry!!!just make sure you get some fluids into you, gatorade is good, because it can up your electrolytes!!!I feel for you being sick and at home with 5 kids, hang in there, it sounds like a 12 hour virus or something, definitely dosnt seem like morning sickness!!!keep hydrated, have your hubby come home from work to take the kids and you go and get some rest!!!God bless!
