  • Im not a doctor (obviously) but I dont think it will. As long as you stay hydrated and dont starve you body even if it means sipping pedialyte or gatoraid and throwing it back up. I drank some bad orange juice and was a barfing queen. Then found out I was a month pregnant. It didnt affect her. I didnt want to drink o.j again for 2 years though lol

  • I got food poisoning with my daughter and she was fine. I was 7 months pregnant.

  • I think the only concern for food poisoning is that you'll throw up a lot and get dehydrated. Aside from some strange bacterial thing like listeriosis, I think the main concern is that you make sure to keep ingesting fluids so you and the baby don't get dehydrated.
