My two grandchildren are coming down to us tomorrow and they have had a vomiting bug and my daughter also, so is there something going around the schools at the moment, or is it food poisoning? unsure.gif

My DD1 goes to childcare in Queanbeyan and started throwing up yesterday at 5:30am. Her last vomit was at 5:30pm. The only place she had been on Wednesday was childcare so yes, there is a vomiting bug going around. Touch wood DH, DD2 and myself haven't caught it.

Yes there definitely is. We've just come back from Sydney and 6 of us there got it and now I am back home, my DS has now gotten it. We are just waiting for my DH & DD2 to get it now. It is pretty horrible and here it is taking days to get over after the vomiting & diarrhoea have stopped (queezy tummy and lack of appetite etc).

I'm in Newcastle.
Kept DS home from childcare on Wednesday as he spewed twice and was generally miserable all day Tuesday. He seemed fine again on Wednesday, but I was expecting DD or I to come down with it (we haven't yet, touch wood).

Yep there is. We haven't had it (touch wood) but a lot of kids on my Facebook page seem to have it at the moment.

I'm in Brisbane and there is something going around.

We have had it go though our family. DD2 started Saturday night 2 weeks ago. DD1's turn Tuesday night and Wednesday. I got it last Friday night. No one else had it in our family. It seems to be a 24 hour thing and there was a few days between one sick person and then the next.

I know someone else who had it this week and the local nursing home was in quarantine this week because of gastro.

I'm in the Blue Mountains in NSW.

I had to pick up DD1 from school today as she was vomitting. The office lady told me she was the 12th kid this week to go home because they were thowing up.

Definitely been a vicious one going around in this part of Canberra. I know a couple of kids who have been hospitalised with it sad.gif

I am NSW not ACT but my DD2 was down with it for 3 days last week, finally on 4th day she didn't vomit anymore & by 5th day she was eating & drinking normally again.

It seems to be worse this time of year.

I believe it's related to the season, with more socialising than usual and more "special" occasions that people are reluctant to miss out on, even if they're not well and will be coming into contact with big groups. So illness is more likely to spread.

I agree it's vicious, myself and two of my kids down so far, I have never been so sick sad.gif

Yep, I got it and I can count on one hand the number of times I've vomited post-childhood so it was a bit of a surprise. The person before me at the GP had it too. I only vomited once right at the start but felt bad for quite awhile afterwards.

Canberra as well. My DS came down with it Tuesday night and was vomiting for a few hours. Within 30mins of him finally settling down, I got it! ohmy.gif But it only last a few hours and then we were both pretty tired and weak the next day. Then just off colour for a couple of days. So I think we got a pretty light dose. I noticed there were quite a few kids away from his nursery room in c/c this week.

It's definitely going around Melbourne, half of the office have been off sick, & lots of my mums group have either had it, or family have it. Seems to just be 12 hours or so of dramatic vomiting & diaharrea, then it passes. Hope you don't get it, it's nasty, especially for the little ones.
