Is it safe to eat peanuts while pregnant? I've read contradicting things on the internet. "What to expect when you're expecting" lists peanuts in their pregnancy diet. But I've been reading that it might up your baby's chances of being allergic. Neither me, nor my husband have food allergies.

Re: Peanuts?

I eat peanuts. I think it's OK to eat them since you and your hubby aren't allegic to them. My OB said that it was fine for me to eat them.

Re: Peanuts?

I eat peanuts and peanut butter. My doc said only if I was allergic myself should I not eat them.

Re: Peanuts?

I ate probably a ton of peanut butter when I was pregnant. All meats grossed me out so I ate peanut butter for protein. Neither my husband nor I is allergic to it so I wasn't too worried. My boy is now a year old and I have given him a bit of PNB. He loved it and is not showing any signs of being allergic.

Re: Peanuts?

Goodness, I eat peanut butter almost daily. Peanut butter crackers, pb on a bagel, etc. I just love it! I have not been told to stay away from it.
