Is it normal to be suffering bad breath?

I am 12 weeks into my pregnancy and was wondering if its normal to be suffering bad breath? My husband has mentioned to me that I have bad breath and there should be no reason for this so could you please confirm if its normal to be suffering this when pregnant and if so will I have this for the duration of the pregnancy or will it go away? Thanks in advance.

Answer: Hi Michelle, Thank you for your enquiry. This may be related to pregnancy but it may not. If you have had a viral infection recently this can affect your breath. It could be from morning sickness from the nausea. If it is related to symptoms of early pregnancy it will settle soon. Best wishes, Alex.
