  • liquor, caffeine, fast food, undercooked meats like medium rare steak, pre-made cake mixes, peptobismal (the pink stomach stuff I dont know how to spell it). Just eat healthy dont indulge on junk food just because your already going to gain weight. Always keep in mind whatever your eating is what the baby is eating and you wouldnt give your newborn a cup of coffee or raw steak.

  • They say to limit your canned Tuna due to mercury amounts in it. Deli meats are discouraged. Raw fish. I found this site that goes into more detail:

  • Stay away from lunch meats, hot dogs, certain fish (deep sea and raw), alcohol, limit caffeine (1 cup of coffee a day is fine), soft cheeses, basically anything that isn't fully cooked.
