  • Whatever makes you sick. I have heard that you shouldn't eat seafood, but I think you should ask your doctor that one

  • This is information you should get directly from your OB, so it is information that fits your pregnancy and you. However, the general foods/drinks are as follows..

    No Alcohol
    No Caffine
    No High Murcury Seafood
    Nonprocessed Deli Meats
    Nonprocessed and Nonpasturized Dairy Products
    Soft Cheeses

  • Yes, your OB will have the latest recommended avoid-foods, but:

    Caffeine, alcohol, non farm-raised seafood, raw fish (sushi), under-cooked eggs

    Anything that you feel nervous about eating!

  • I've heard you can cut out fruit juices and sweet yogurts to help not have an overweight baby...
