why did she say not to?

i would not have got through pregnancy without chinese food haha.

if your worried just chose a simple chow mein or something. Cant see how that would do harm

So long as the food is cooked through, it's safe. I can't imagine why anyone would say not to eat Chinese food, when it tends to be rice, vegetables and meat, like any other cuisine. One thing I would check though is that the restaurant is MSG free- otherwise its fine.x

Hi, I have eaten out at chinese and Indian restaurants throughout my pregnancy. As long as the food is hot then it should be fine.

I do not think it should be a problem and that too if you only eat once in a while. The restaurant Chinese food tends to have MSG (unless it is banned in your area), and too much MSG is not good for anyone, pregnant or otherwise. However, I am 100% sure eating it once in a blue moon won't harm you or the baby at all.

My Chinese friend had a healthy baby last month and she ate Chinese food every day.

Enjoy the party.

I haven't a clue why midwife said not to eat it but she's also very cautious with everything she has me a bloody nervous wreck.the only Chinese food I like is shredded beef in black bean sauce.how do I know if the restaurant is MSG free?
