Diet and Exercise:Pregnancy- What NOT to eat/drink?
2009-01-15
Name: Pooja
Hi

I know Papaya is strict NO NO during pregnancy. I want to know what are other things to stay away from during pregnancy other than caffeine. I had two miscarriages in the past so want to make sure what to eat or not to eat during pregnancy.

Thank you for your help.
Pooja

Hey Pooja
Yes, you should strictly say NO to papaya during you pregnancy.Foods that will have an abortifacient effect should never be taken. Hence some of the foods are not to be taken.Visit your doctor so that he might better suggest you the options.

You can eat chicken, eggs and whatever you want. Just avoid RAW papaya, not ripe papaya and oily fish like Mackerel. Apart from this eat well. A protein rich diet is beneficial for your baby´ s development.

Hi Lalitha, you should avoid eating chicken and eggs at least in your first trimester. Other than that you should avoid papaya, dates, fish high in mercury, jackfruit etc. I avoided chicken and eggs in my first trimester. Now I am in my last trimester and eat everthing except for papaya, dates, fish high in mercury, jackfruit etc. However, I think some of these in moderation are fine, you must also check with your gynecologist.

Subject:  Foods to aviod apart from Green /Unripe Papaya
Cut down fatty foods.

Avoid drinks like coffee, tea, coca colas and other drinks with caffeine. Too much caffeine may affect the growth of baby during pregnancy and at birth.

Caffeine & Pregnancy
Pregnant women who consume caffeine (from tea, cola, chocolate and some prescription drugs) even about a cup of coffee daily are at higher risk of giving birth to an underweight baby, according to the research findings published in the British Medical Journal in November 2008.

The researchers further found that pregnant women who drink two or more cups of coffee a day are at twice the risk of having a miscarriage as those women who do not take caffeine.

Advice: Reduce caffeine intake before conception and throughout pregnancy. The best advice was to limit caffeine consumption to below 100 milligrams a day, there is no lower limit for which there is no effect,

Avoid Vitamin A supplements as too much may harm your baby growing inside.

Avoid white breads and foods prepared with white flour (maida).

Avoid too much sugar and foods containing sugars.

Nutmeg spice in large quantity to pregnant women may result in miscarriage.
Although there is no scientific evidence, some people believe that because pineapple and raw papaya contain enzymes, so they can induce abortion.

Avoid high-mercury sea-foods such as fish, especially Swordfish, Shark, King Mackerel(Surmai in Marathi) and Tilefish. Raw fish and seafood may contain Listeria, a bacteria that can cause food poisoning and miscarriage or premature birth.

Avoid raw or smoked or frozen seafood such as oysters, sushi, sashimi, smoked oysters and smoked salmon. But canned seafood is safe to eat.
Soft cheeses like ricotta without heating or uncooked.
Avoid raw meat such as seafood, sushi, uncooked beef, raw eggs or poultry as these may be contaminated by toxoplasmosis, coliform bacteria and salmonella.
Pre-cooked meat dishes without further heating.
Salads, readymade or pre-packed.
Ready-cooked cold meat including chicken.
You should not smoke.
Always consult your doctor about the safety of any drugs you take when pregnant.

Subject:  papaya
who told you papaya is a NO NO in pregnancy? Nothing will happen if you eat papaya. I was very constipated and tried everything else []medication, home remedies] and finally ate a bowl of papaya daily for 4 months..... everything went off fine. Papayas are also a good source of beta carotene. In many cultures around the world people eat everything, I don' t know where this ridiculous old wives tale came from [probably from old wives :) ] and is such a strong suoerstition!

honey eat whatever u like. u guys r educated and should know better.
i ate everything in my pregnancy. i don' t know who is the doctor that tells u to avoid papaya and pineapple.
i live on USA and my doctor told me eat anything. don' t worry too much.
by the way salmonella can only be found in very rare eggs and only if it has pass the expiry date. i don' t think i india the eggs are ever stammped or checked.
EAT NUTS SPECIALLY, IT IS GOOD FOR U AND FOR THE BABY. BABY WON' T HAVE ANY NUT ALLERGIE IN THE FUTURE. PLS STOP D AVOIDING THE GOOD FOOD. ALL THE FRUITS AND VEGTALBLE CONTAIN VITAMINS AND MINERALS AND THAT IS WHAT U NEED IN PREGNANCY.

My dr just asked me to avoid papaya, but as per our traditional beleives i avoided anything garam (by nature) like dry coconut, walnut for 8 months , wen 9th month started we take such things(panjiri). U shud take lot of veggies, fruits , juices , also take lil saunf , they say it makes the baby fairer. Gud Luck, enjoy the period n don worry much, also i hope u r aware dont do work in squatting position n dont lift heavy wts but be very active.

Subject:  What NOT to eat in pregnancy
Thanks Mel,Shalini & Saba

Yes, pregnant women better stay away from Papaya. I have heard about it from various sources that it leads to miscarriage.

Anyway,thanks for your inputs about Pineapple, &uncooked eggs & especially sprouts I din' t know that at all. mel, are you talking about Moong Bean dal sprouts? I eat green sabut moong dal sprouts alot but thankfully I din' t eat it since this pregnancy? I better stay away if its the same you are talking about?

Also, what about jeera(cumin seeds)? I read on some american websides herbs to avoid during pregnancy- cumin seeds was one of them. I have stopped putting jeera in my dals & vegetables.

Sesame seeds also should NOT be eaten right?

Pl. everyone add to the list whatever you know. I want to know for sure. I have had 2 miscarriages. everything in my blood work is normal. So I fear is it something I ate then? I ate Isabgol during 1st pregnancy and blame it for the 1st miscarraige. Now I am pregnant again so want to be very careful.

Thank You all for your inputs
-Pooja

Actually, it' s green papaya, but I preferred to avoid any and all papayas. You shouldn' t eat raw / half cooked EGGS. It contains salmonella and is dangerous for baby.

Oily FISH is very good for baby' s brain, but not more than 1 small piece a week or it could lead to mercury poisoning.

Another thing is SPROUTS... (matki). It contains a bacteria that is not safe for baby. So, even though it is high in protein, it' s not safe for baby.

A basic rule is make sure that everything you eat is well-cooked.
