Is it safe to eat a lot of chocolate during pregnancy?

Been wondering the same thing. I'm a chocoholic before pregnancy but during my 1st trimester - i totally hate them. However, in 2nd trimester...i started to heart choc again;> i can't do without milo (at least minimum 2 large cups a day), almond covered choc once a week, hazelnut hot choc fr starbucks/choc cream chip fr starbucks twice a week [*drooling* eventho i just drank half cup hazelnut choc].

This lil one of mine wud react secara hyper mins after i consumed choc. Over stimulation ke? The lil one will kick non stop like 15-30 mins and there's one nite [after 2 cups of milo and quarter of choc cream chip] the lil one been headbutting, poking & kicking inside about an hour until i was asleep. I found it cute at first ttp, rase scary pulak after 30mins had passed and the lil one is still kicking actively.

So, choc ni is safe ke tak sbnrnyer?

I went to the hospital last week because I was having contractions. I was so uncomfortable. I have a history of preterm labor so I had to know what was going on. It turned out that all the Christmas chocolate I had indulged in was causing the baby to be in almost constant motion. Which caused Braxton Hicks like contractions. I wasn't in labor but I was so uncomfortable. It didn't harm the baby but I felt guilty about stimulating her that much.

After about 6 months, chocolate gave me lots of contractions. While they were Braxton-Hicks, they were quite strong. My OB had to check me once and advised I lay off for the rest of the pregnancy.

-Err??? contractions?? adakah those BHs i had were due to choc sbnrnyer and x fr too much of walking? or...hmm...maybe both??

Unless you're eating about a truck of chocolate it's not harming anything. And as for all the women that think it's the caffine in the chocolate that makes the baby move. It's not, it's the sugar! Just like when you want to check movement they tell you to drink a juice or a sprite. Since I can't get any other caffine- there's no way I'm going to give up my chocolate...even if I can't feel it's effects, it's the treat I like.

Scientists in Finland say eating chocolate during pregnancy may make for happier, livelier babies. I ate chocolate the whole time I was pregnant with my kids and they did great. My son was sleeping the whole night through 2 weeks after he was born and my daughter was sleeping through at one week old. My kids are happy the are 3 and 4 now and I am still eating chocolate with this pregnancy. I have no more than 3.5oz a day that is about 2 chocolate bars a day.

-Note that!!

Conclusion: i think...i better watch out my choc intake and slow down my shopping activity [bukan aje energy is running out ttp juga duit;<]
