  • Haha no your baby will be fine. When I was preg with my daughter I ate like milllions of Tabasco wings. The worst that happened was the horrid indigestion I got after it lol. Take a few tums and you will be fine! (:

  • eat up while you can! later in your pregnancy you might want to avoid the super spicy stuff-it makes the normal heartburn and refluxing of pregnancy that much more miserable.

  • I ate jalapenos like a mad woman throughout my entire first pregnancy. We have this place called Burrito Bandito and I lived off those burritos. The workers would ask if I wanted extra jalapenos and I would say yeah and then I would look at their idea of extra and ask for more. LOL MY DD loves spicy foods. I wonder what my craving will be this time around?

  • I ate those while I was pregnant, plus alot of Tabasco sauce. I craved the spicy stuff duing the early part of my pregnancy but towards the end of it I would get heart burn and indigestion so bad I would throw up. The baby will be fine, but I would suggest keeping lots of tums/antacids around. (:
