Bak kut teh pregnancy cravings are quite common because it is so yummy. But better not eat or only have small amount because it is not the best meat for your baby and you to eat in pregnancy. You can try to eat more fish and chicken and vegetables.

Better not eat as it is very salty and will cause your feet and ankles to swell up. This app has a Food feature where you can find out if foods are safe or not for you to eat in pregnancy. Have you used it?

I also had bak kut teh pregnancy cravings! I mostly controlled them but sometimes just ate a little bit. My husband used to scold me though when I ate so I stopped :(
