    Default Ate a fruit with a worm in it

    Hi!


    I am writing because I am very concerned. I am 24 weeks pregnant and I like to eat fruits during my pregnancy (VERY well washed and organic produce when possible).


    Anyway, I was eating a plum today and I noticed it had a small worm in it! :S I threw up inmediately, I am not sure if ate a worm or not, but I am very worried something could happen to my baby.


    Has anyone been in a situation like this? Should I go to the emergency room?


    Cheers!

    I'm sure your stomach acid would kill the worm or your chewing would kill it anyway.

    Haha, I was just about to say the exact same thing! A fly flew up my nose yesterday and my friend said the same thing! Ugh!
