Are Top Ramen noodles fine to eat during pregnancy?

I really want to eat them but my friend is saying its bad for me during pregnancy because of MSG and also the salt content is high and will cause swelling.

What do you think ?

I've eaten them on occasion. Just drink a lot of water to make up for all the salt. Now I want some! lol. I love the chicken flavored ones.

I eat maruchan ramen. But I don't think they have msg in them. They do have a lot of sodium, but sodium is part of a normal diet. Actually, I looked at the sodium content of a burger from mcdonalds a couple of weeks ago, and it was higher than my ramen. You're going to swell, no matter what. Most of what helps that though is drinking plenty of water and propping your feet up if they are swelling. Nearly any packaged or restaurant food is packed with sodium.

I love them! I've only eaten them once during my pregnancy, tho, because of the sodium.
