Eating chocolate during pregnancy

Hello everybody, I was just wondering if it's dangerous during the pregnancy to eat a lot of chocolate? I pretty much love chocolate and eat it almost every day ( not in big sizes, but bites) is this bad for my baby? Embarassed I am 6 months pregnant now....

Thanks oana23 Confused

Hi oana,

lol, i'm sure that will be fine, lets face it, how many pregnant women do you know that don't like getting stuck into a bit of chocolate ? I eat chocolate each day or when I can get hold of it and i'm 9 weeks. I have certainly never had any weight problems so that's not an issue, but at the same time I don't eat a whole block by myself or anything but i'm sure not worried about indulging in a few chockies every now and then. So all I can say is 'enjoy'.

Take care,
