Can I eat spicy foods during my pregnancy?

Q: Is it safe to eat spicy food during pregnancy?

A: If it doesn't give you a horrible case of heartburn, there's no reason why you can't indulge in your favorite three-alarm chili while you're pregnant. While some women may worry that tangy dishes can trigger contractions and bring on labor, there's no good scientific proof this is true -- it's just an old wives' tale.
