Spicy foods and labor?

Okay so i have had some problems with pre term labor so i have been doing minimal activity and all that, but someone told me earlier to stay away from spicy food too because it can increase my labor. Is this true or just a myth? F-I-L is making chili tonight is it safe to eat this? I have never heard this before and now i am kinda worried.

  • Yes, its a myth. Eat whatever you like! If it were true, ALL of my babies would have been preemies- I lived off of all things hot & spicy.

  • I believe it's a myth. I ate JARS of Jalapenos everyday when I was pregnant with my first daughter, and she was a week late, lol.
