HELP, PLEASE !

So me and mu boyfriend moved in an apt. four months ago; im five months now . With all the bills and only one income we run short on money. So we dont have much enough for a lot of groceries. Ive been eating top ramen noddles most of my pregnancy. They say there high on sodium. IM WORRY that it will harm the baby in any way . Can somebody give me some advice ? Is it something to worry about ?

You should sign up for wic

My mom ate when she was pregnant with me because that's all they could afford too. And I'm healthy but stillTalk to your dr about it.  You should look into CHIP it helps pay for things like milk and eggs for pregnant women and young children.  Good luck!

Applying For Food Stamps Is Also A Big Help And With You Being Pregnant And Not Having Enough Food You Will Get More And Quicker Then Anyone Else

It wont harm the baby. I was eatting that stuff for awhile because that is all I wanted. If you can I would get something else to eat like fruits and vegetables.  The baby needs other things besides the noodles.  I get the short on cash my husband and I have our good and bad months but the baby really needs other nutrients.

Wic and food stamps. No that isn't dangerous for baby but it isn't exactly good for your health. Good luck I know EXACTLY how your feeling. I remember with my 1st after I got kicked out just eating ramen alllll the time because we were broke. But seriously get on wic. They will help with formula one baby is born aND that is EXPENSIVE!

If you go to the dollar store they actually have a decent food section and have frozen foods and canned foods. Better than nothing and cheap too!

The only risk is you getting high blood pressure from all the sodium but talk to your doctor and take advice from the ladies

That's all I ate for my first four and a half months because the baby wouldn't keep anything else down and I'm six months now and he's fine but you should try to get wic or food stamps
