are spicy foods safe to eat while early in preg?? i ask this cause i've been wanting to eat spicy foods like spicy shrimp or spicy pork skins. how safe is it or can it harm my baby (only 4 weeks 2 days)

Shrimp is not so good because you are not really supposed to eat shellfish during pregnancy. But spicy generally is fine. I totally craved spicy foods during pregnancy and delivered a perfectly healthy baby!

I agree with !.. you need to avoid seafood, especially fish because of unsafe levels and possible damage to the baby. I personally eat a TON of spicy food and doc said it was fine.

lashunda, I have 4 kids and with all my kids I ate alot of shrimp and california row and fish. Just make sure it's well cooked. Never have raw meat or raw seafood. Believe me if you ask your doctor she or he will tell you its okay.
