  • It is not harmful to the baby. I love spicy foods but had to be careful during pregnancy because they gave me heartburn.

  • I agree with these guys. It's totally safe! In fact, some women crave spicy food. Enjoy!

  • This is a good question. I just finished eating a chicken fajita with chile paste, and it was sooo goood, I only want food that has a zing. I too wondered if it could hurt the baby.
