    I think you have a bug, but I don't think it was food poisoning. Since you had chills, I would say you had a fever and it was breaking. Food poisoning will hit you right away with the vomiting, your stomach will churn for a few hours or more depending on how much you ate of the tainted food and your bodies resistance to it. Then you will have this not so good feeling for a day or so. It doesn't go away that quickly.

    See if you have a fever. If you don't have a fever then you do not have the flu. Sounds more like food poisoning. I got food poisoning when I was 5 months pregnant and that is kinda how I felt.

    sounds like food poisoning - sounds too violent to be the flu; if it subsides in a few more hours then it was probably food poisoning

    flu does not cause nausea, it was more then likely a little case of food poisoning from the soup

    i think you have normal symptoms of pregnancy and the fact that you ate out of a can i think it was not food poisoning
