I`ve had minor morning sickness, but now the thought of food is horrifying!

Hi Alex,
I am 33 years old 7 weeks pregnant with my first child. I have only had minor morning sickness occasionally however over the last 24 hours the thought of food has been horrifying. The only thing I can stomach is a couple of peices of fruit and plently of water. I am concerned about the health of our baby.

Answer: Hi Kristen, Don’t worry about the baby it will be fine. Try to nibble on some dry crackers and take sips of water. You will recover in a few weeks and will feel much better. The baby is growing at a slower rate for now so doesn’t need much extra. Best wishes, Alex
