I didn't eat anything with MSG in it while pregnant with my son (he is now 18 months), however I have eaten some foods with MSG in it with this pregnancy (I am 15 weeks). My doctor as told me that I can eat it, just do not eat much of it. Is there anyone else who is avoiding this additive while pregnant. Anyone been told NOT to eat anything with MSG in it while pregnant?

This is my third child and I have never heard of that...so I guess no....I wouldn't even know where to start to avoid that...isn't it like in almost everything....now I know chinese food has alot in it so, but I usually love chinese but this little guy inside doesn't like it so I don't really eat it like I would like too....but good luck sorry I have no advice for you...

My brother is horribly allergic to MSG (gets migraines that send him to the ER), so wherever we go with him, we have to ask, and if they are not sure, we ask the waiter to look up ingredients they use in the kitchen. Our family does it all the time, no biggie, just ask. Many chinese food places will leave it out if you make a special request and some places dont use it at all. If it worries you, just ask, people dont seem to mind. Some foods that are offenders: chinese, certain flavored potato chips, certain bottled sauces, some pre-packaged sausages. Our family has become quite expert at avoiding MSG! Read labels, ask questions , and maybe shop for certain items at natural health stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joe's etc. Good luck!

It's also found in vaccines, so it is really everywhere. I have avoided it too, luckily my favorite Chinese food resturant proudly displays its MSG free sign.

I don't think its dangerous to have MSG. I stay away from it b/c it makes my morning sickness act up.
