Spicy foods.

 My mom is freaking out over here with the fact that I'm eating a Salsa Queso which is Medium with chip. And it's my 2nd pregnancy right now. I had to called my nurse to see if it's okay to eat that to calm my mother down. lol. My doctor says it fine unless it upset your stomach.

Does anyone eats spicy food while being pregnant?

  • When I was pregnant with my oldest, pretty much all I ate during the first trimester was extra extra spicy Kung Pao chicken. It was so hot, I seriously doubt I could stomach it when I am not pregnant.

  • If medium freaks your mom out, she would have died with pregnancies. I love a Yemenite pepper paste called zhouk. To say it is spicy to the average person would be an understatement. Two of my 3 kids also love the stuff. The 3rd is still a little young and probably will as well.

  • OMG, as long as your ok with it, and your baby might move a little bit. But, I had spicy food, and my son turned out fine. Infact enjoy until about 35 weeks. I started to get really big and I couldn't eat spicy food, I would get really bad heartburn. Tell your Mom to calm down.
