Okay, i might be going a little overboard here. But i've been reading how turmeric is not safe during pregnancy - and i'm in the middle of eating curry for lunch!! It contains probably a few tablespoons in it. Alot of sites say that it could be a uterine stimulant. I'm only 4 weeks preg, is this something i should worry about? And do i have to stop eating curry? thanks

Actually, let me correct that. The entire pot contains a few tablespoons, so my lunch probably had a teaspoon or less. Am i over reacting?

Hi Tiphani, I was born and raised in India and everymeal we eat will have turmeric in it let it be vegetables, chicken, snacks etc.and over 1 billion people live there and have babies eating that food. I am 23 week pregnant and I am eating atleast 1 food everyday which will have turmeric added. I have never heard of it being bad. I have heard a lot of useful effects of turmeric.

thank u sandee. i can see i'm already becoming "one of those pregnant ladies". A little bit paranoid but i just want to do everything right. Kind of silly of me, 1 billion people eating curry yet i think it may harm me. Hehehehe, thanks for the info.
