    hi Sukar, Aspirin tablets are prescribed for blood related problems in pregnant women generally. So no need to worry about that. There can't be any generalised 'don't take this, take this' situation in pregnancy. Each woman has her own problems to handle... so trust your doctor:) I have a blood clotting problem so i take injections. A milder problem of my situation is treated with aspirin too. If you're really concerned do ask your doctor why she's prescribing aspirin to you and what it means by reduced fluid, how soon it's get alright etc., only she can give best explanation. all the best to you:) Latha

    It's really a comprehensive list. Thanks a lot. Can you ask grandma if horse gram(Kulthi in Hindi, Kollu in Tamil) is harmful in pregnacy, I unknowingly ate it today and someone told me later that we should avoid it during pregnancy. Thanks in advance.

    I believe it makes absolute sense why papaya & pien apple were not recommended for prtegnant women in India, Papain an enzyme ime found in Ppapya ( raw) is the main ingredient of meat tenderizer, it breaks down muscle & tissue ...
    As for pineapple & mango (in some cases) .. I follow a simple rule... anything fruit that cannot be made into a jam/jelly .. Avoid esp during the 1st trimester

    I have one thing to clarify......usually people say to eat more of keerai/green leafy vegetable during pregnancy. but here it is said to avoid that. can anyone throw light on this.

    The reason why keerai is not recommended in India has nothing to do with its intrinsic properties, rather it is avoided because of the questionable hygiene of the area in which its grown...
    If you live in the states getting the packaged spinach is no issue..
