7 weeks pregnant - craving tomatoes with salt
Hi,

I have two questions, first one is i am constantly wanting to eat tomatoes with lots of salt - is this bad for the baby???

Secondly I am experiencing implantation bleeding, is it bad to have intercourse during this time. The bleeding is alot less than last week... like just spotting...

Thanks

Tomatoes with salt are not bad for the baby. Try not to eat too much salt though as this will increase fluid retention.
You should avoid intercourse until the bleeding has stopped completely.

Best wishes
