Hi ! U should not eat heaty items like dates, cheese, raw papaya, etc... Please also avoid too much intake of caffeine like tea, coffee & also junk food & food stuff made of maida like pizza, bread, farsan, etc which would give you constipation problem. Even Chinese is best to be avoided during this period as it contains ajinomoto which is not good for health.

A pregnant lady should not eat papaya, raspberry, pineapple, brinjal , most important thing is do not consume alcohol, gutkha and cigarette , avoid spicy food, and dont have much sweets because it may swell the body and do not sit at home daily go for walk and do not take medicine without doctors consultation and avoid sex during that period

No don't stop eating in pregnancy period. Food is essential for body and child growth. but don't take to much heavy food which is typical to digest. Take green vegitables,chapati, cheese,milk,fruits,juce and salad. This is the diet which can give proper growth to child and your body. If you can digest then take Daal soup also.

Hi. Avoid Papaya, Sesame seeds, Pineapple, too many dry fruits and nuts, Figs, Horsegram, cheeses and MSG found in chinese food. Also reduce intake of ginger and honey. Cut down on Tea and coffee and other foods containing caffeine. Of course smoking and alcohol is an absolute no. Check with your doctor before u take any drugs during pregnancy.
