No. The placenta won't let the virus transfer to the baby. All is well. No! I had a stomach virus at 8 weeks pregnant and the doc told me that the baby would be fine. Just keep yourself as hydrated as possible and I hope you feel better. No. As long as it does not last too long and that you can keep some liquids and food down and not dehydrate yourself. Good luck and God Bless:)
