Hi again Luvbug02! Can I just say that if you're getting the flu or a cold then this is completely normal and the baby will not be affected! I was soooo sick with my first at about 8-10 weeks that I thought I would lose her, but i didn't and she's now 4.5 years old! I always get sick really badly at least once with each pregnancy sometimes at the beginning and sometimes toward the end of the pregnancy. This is because the body uses everything it can to help the baby first and the mother gets the dregs ha ha ha! Your body will always ensure that the baby is getting enough nutrients first which is why we are so susceptible to picking up bugs and getting run down by them. Rest assured your baby will be fine and completely and blissfully unaware of mummy's state!
