I LOVE ginger but since having pregnancy sickness I REALLY love it...particuarly in kombucha drinks containing ginger, ginger tea with honey, and recently, this Maine Root spicy Ginger Brew.
I drink about 2-3 ginger drinks a day.
But then I go online and happen to read that pregnant women should avoid ginger? That it can cause your uterus to contract? What?
I'm bummed. :( Should I slow down on the ginger? I have been having a lot of AF type cramping lately but thought it was just my uterus growing. (I experienced a lot of this type of cramping with my son too but never consumed ginger with him)
Ginger yay or nay in first trimester? (I'll be 8 weeks this weekend)
