eat them if you've got a craving for them especially almonds, i've eaten nuts throughout all of my pregnancies and none of my children have nut allergys
If your family has a history of allergy (or the fathers side) it's best to avoid them, but if no one does go crazy.
they use to say not to eat them incase the baby was alergic to them but my midwife sed just to eat away at the end of the day it could be alergic to any food u wont now any differance till its starts eating what ever it is
OMG I was about to get scared there for a minute LOL bc I have been eating peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches and nuts since I first found out I was pregnant - I was never advised not to eat nuts.... I am sure its safe unless otherwise stated by your dr
I heard the same thing when I was pregnant for my son because all I wanted for 2 months was chocolate covered almond.. My OB said go ahead and eat as much as I want.. As petitewonder said, there's so much protein and Omega 3 fatty acids that are so good for a developing baby. :) Enjoy your nuts! hehe
it's a southern US thang ;-). but they're sooooooooo good!
boiled peanuts?? really? i ve never heard of that... hmmm
There's that silly theory that certain foods ate during pregnancy can cause food allergies....but I ate peanuts of all sorts (especially boiled peanuts, yum!) during both of my previous pregnancies and neither of my kids have food allergies of any sort (well my son reacts a little to the acid in tomatoes and citric fruits but..clearly not peanuts, lol).
so eat away...like Petite said, they're GREAT for you!!!
I've never heard that! I ate a peanut butter sandwich almost every day of my first pregnancy!
nuts are good for you.. they are a good source of protein and omega 3 fatty acids.... i dont know why you wouldnt eat them.. I do remember reading somewhere that eating alot of nuts in your pregnancy can cause nut allergies but i dont know if this is true... it was on the internet.. I was never advised by my doctor to avoid them..
If its true though, my poor baby is screwed becasue I had peanut butter and almonds all through my pregnancy... it was difficult to eat meat at times so having nuts helped me stick to a more holistic diet.
