What? Why would ginger be dangerous? Ginger is a really well known remedy for nausea, and there are so many products for pregnant women made with ginger. I'm about to have a cup of ginger tea, and I know they make ginger hard candies, and I know lots of people like to eat candied ginger. I personally can't imagine eating the pickled stuff
but if it helps, go for it!!
Sorry you got scared. That happened to me last pregnancy. I took something for gas that I read was safe (I was in a lot of pain), and then went online and read somewhere that it was dangerous and associated with birth defects. Well, it turns out that last site was just plain wrong. They had it confused with something else, I guess. So now I'm incredibly wary of anything I read on the internet regarding safety, and always try to find multiple sources to make sure.
