  • It's not right from anyone to tell you that unless it's toxic to you or the baby.

  • He sounds concerned for the baby's health. Call your doctor and ask if it's okay for you to eat the things he says no to. He can't argue with the doc.

  • He can make suggestions but you know best or when in doubt, your doc.

  • Sounds a bit controlling! I undertood my SO being concerned but ultimately, it is my body and I am feeding him while he is inside me. When he or she is born then you can have more of a say, that's what I said.

  • tell him you know what if you have a problem with how i am eating and the weight i gain, get out...cause if he is that controlling over food, it will only get worse

  • He may just be anxious for you to have a healthy baby and want to be a part of the pregnancy! I think it's sweet. Bless his heart!

  • No it's not right unless it is harmful to the baby. I mean being pregnant comes with a lot of cravings and everything else.
