Saffron?

My sister suggested I take/eat saffron. I read a few things on google about it possibly having negative effects. I read that after the first trimester it should be fine. I was curious if anyone has taken saffron during their pregnancies? Or if anyone is knowledgeable about its benefits/risks and wants to share some information.
TY

Why did she tell you to eat it? Never heard of it either way during pregnancy (and I've read a lot on herbs/nutrition)

It's suppose to be good for blood pressure/mood swings/muscle relaxer/stomach aches/improve digestion/increase appetite....etc. She has a friend from India that swears on it for pregnancy. I've looked into it, and found that as long as you don't over due it (as with most stuff) it's great. In high amounts it can cause early contractions. I'm going to buy some and try it, because I have been really irritable lately.
