Thanksgiving, much like Halloween, has found a way to sneak up on us. Though I'm sure no one is complaining about the upcoming holiday that brings family and friends together, there's so much preparation that needs to be done for the day. And, for women who are pregnant, there are even more things that need to be done. Sure, Thanksgiving could seem to be a pregnant woman's dream because of all the dishes to choose from, but there are a few Thanksgiving dishes you shouldn't eat when pregnant that many women aren't aware of it.
Honestly, I was never really one to pay attention to the restrictions of food for pregnant women. Although I've never been pregnant myself, it seemed like my sister didn't have to stay away from anything when she was pregnant — especially during Thanksgiving. That, however, was something that I was wrong about because there are more foods that are harmful to pregnant women than I thought. Thanks to my older sister, I was able to see that there are some dishes that I should keep off of the menu this holiday season for my pregnant friends.
If you're not sure what you can or cannot put on your plate this Thanksgiving holiday, these 11 dishes will help you figure out what you should stray away from.
