So I have always loved anything spicy and since I have been preggers that hasn't changed. All my friends family and co-workers tell me that it is not good to eat spicy foods like chili and wings while I'm expecting that it has all kinds of complications. Has anyone else heard that?

In India, and Thailand (just to name a couple) women get pregnant just like they do here. They also tend not to stop eating the foods they grew up on. Much of their food is spicy....  some very very VERY spicy (I love it myself). They also eat those foods while breastfeeding.

But to answer your question, yes I have heard that before. I suppose if spicy foods upset your stomach while pregnant it wouldn't be advisable to eat them......   but if they don't.... go right ahead
