Hi Gals...I know this may be a silly question, but is it safe to eat microwave popcorn while pregnant?? A girl I work with is in her third trimester and she is arguing that pregnant women are not to eat microwave popcorn. No one there knows I am expecting, but now I am curious! I love the stuff!! Tyhanks!

I've never heard of popcorn being a problem...ask your doctor if you're worried. Snack away! Lol

I ate the stuff like crazy with my first one, it was the only thing I could keep down! And with this one I eat it too, but I love the kettle corn the best!

Never heard that before - I ate a lot of air popped corn when I was preg with my dd -especially in the middle of the night. :)

Sounds pretty silly to me. I think she has it confused with not giving babies popcorn (choking hazard) but preggos can eat all they want.

whats her argument against it.. there is nutritiously nothing wrong with it.. nothing raw or dangerous... Im not sure why your co worker has this idea that preggos shouldn't eat it

I know it seemed really silly to me too, but to each their own I guess. She is just missing out on the good stuff!! LOL!! Thanks gals! All this talk of it I now have a craving for it!! Ttys!!

maybe there's too much sodium in it or something??? Still, very odd to me. :)
