Hi everyone! I'll be 10 weeks pregnant tomorrow! Yesterday I tried a spicy shrimp soup from a Thai restaurant and it was sooooo delicious!!! It was so delicious that I went and got it again today. It has lemongrass in it though so I looked it up if it was safe out of curiosity. I found a lot of conflicting information and most of the things I found advised that it was unsafe to consume during pregnancy. Did I hurt my baby? Did anyone else consume lemongrass during pregnancy and everything turned out fine? Or does anyone know if it's safe or not? Thanks everyone

Having lemongrass once in your soup will not cause a negative effect on you or baby

I would probably deter from eating it on a regular basis though.

I think the problem is that there haven't been tests on a lot of things, especially herbs, in pregnancy. There's no definitive answer on many things!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
