    So I was in the pharmacy yesterday and got chatting to the pharmacist about pregnancy and she was telling me that I shouldn't eat grapes when pregnant, I thought this was strange as its a fruit but I googled today and they said that black grapes should be avoided in tri 1 as they can heat up your insides or something like that and it can be harmful to baby and increase risk of mc. also there's something harmful that can be passed tthrough your milk.

    I'm loving grapes at the moment so am a bit shocked by this as thought I was being a healthy, now im really worried. anybody else heard of this??

    Never heard this one before, i was eating grapes by the punnet load at one point! I wouldnt be too worried though theres so many things theyve now decided are harmful in pregnancy its getting a bit extreme in my opinion. I dout there was many things deemed harmful when my mum was pregnant with me and im fine

    This sounds ridiculous to me! I have been eating grapes with no problems and at my 20 week scan all was perfect, I don't get how grapes could heat up your insides?! That sounds mad! x

    Agreed if it was a risk it would be in nhs guidelines. Iv eaten grapes loads and been fine but if you are likely to worry yourself have other fruits personally I don't think it has any scientific proof xx
