Yes, you're fine. There is talk about consuming peanuts during pregnancy, but no reason almonds would be unsafe.
luciddreamer106:Yes, you're fine. There is talk about consuming peanuts during pregnancy, but no reason almonds would be unsafe."Women who are allergic to peanuts should not eat peanuts or peanut products during pregnancy or at any other time. Studies suggest that women who are not allergic to peanuts can safely eat peanuts during pregnancy (3). Because peanut allergy tends to run in families, health care providers have been seeking ways to help prevent this allergy in babies from affected families. Until recently, experts recommended that women who aren?t allergic to peanuts but who have a family history of peanut allergy avoid peanuts during pregnancy (3, 4). However, recent studies have found no evidence that avoiding peanuts in pregnancy helps prevent peanut allergies in the child (3, 5)."- March of Dimes website
Really? They needed a study to figure this out?
I have been drinking silk almond milk my entire pregnancy. Im currently in my third trimester with only 49 days to go. I am not a fan of milk and I know I don't get as much calcium as I should. I switched to almond milk because it has twice the calcium and half the calories of regular dairy milk. I get the unsweetened vanilla kind that has only 30 calories per serving. It great because it doesn't have any added sugar and you still get plenty of calcium. I worried about excessive weight gain during pregnancy because a.) both my parents are diabetics which initially put me at risk for gestational diabetes and b.) I want to get back to my normal gym routine asap and get my body back to normal. My baby boy is perfectly healthy with no complications to date. Both my regular OB and my perinatalogist said everything looks good for the arrival of a healthy baby body.
I have always preferred Natural, Unsweetened Almond milk as an adult. Growing up on a dairy farm I WILL not drink sweetened milk (i.e. your normal gallons you buy at the store). I hate that they mess with the natural nutrients of it :(
