I've also been told that hot food are bad for your baby apparently the baby will be crying non stop hehehe who will wnat that hey? But when the cravings spoke you got no chice but to go right into Nando's store and buy hot chicken jus like I did on Friday. I enjoyed it even tho afterwards I started to think of a crying non stop baby.

No I'm no longer worried bcoz of Gynae's reply

Hi there

Don't worry, I'm going on 27 weeks and I still eat lots of lemons and sometimes vinegar with salt, and so far my baby's healthy. My pre-natal midwive says anything in moderation is OK except alcohol & cigarettes.

Take care
