I hope no one laughs at this question. With my first successful pregnancy I went into pre-term labor after eating a pomegranate. It didn't click until a few days later when after eating the same fruit I went into PTL again. So I've always wondered if there was a connection, and now that I'm pg again I'm wondering if I should avoid it. Does anyone know? There are these delicious looking bottles of pomagranate juice at my organic store, and I'm dying to try some, but I've been too paranoid! :

thats WEIRD!

I actually started drinking the pomegranite juice in my second trimester cause it looked SOOOOOOOO yummy.......and I went online and looked up all sorts of stuff about pomegranites and all I found was positive stuff about the vitamins in it.........no where I read said anything cautionary about pregnancy.

I wonder if you're allergic to something about the pomegranates?
