Aloe Vera juice
❌ NOT RECOMMENDED

Despite the need for more research, several groups, including the American Pregnancy Association, advise against drinking aloe vera juice while pregnant. This is due to worries that it can lower electrolyte levels and cause an increase in uterine contractions to occur. Unless your doctor advises you otherwise, it is advised to avoid drinking it.

Ama-Ebi (Sushi)
❌ NOT RECOMMENDED

Sushi sometimes contains raw fish or meat, which may contain parasites that could make your baby ill. Although there is a chance of getting a parasite infection from sushi, it is unlikely that the infection will spread to your baby and make them sick. However, the gastrointestinal issues it may give you are severe enough to interfere with your baby’s development. The Mayo Clinic advises pregnant women to avoid sushi because of this. You might want to consult your doctor for their opinion.

 

A lot of sushi varieties do not contain raw fish or meat, so they’re okay to eat as long as you follow the rest of your dietary restrictions.
