I was ordering take away and the girl serving questioned my choice because it had lots of chilli.
Worst part was I wasn't even pregnant and when I said so she didn't believe me!

Telling pregnant people what to eat...
I think it's rude! I do not like people telling me what to eat and not to eat when pregnant. I am not grateful I get very irritated and want to bite their heads off😁 I've seen mums/friends eat cold meats, soft serve, even drink wine I have never whispered a single word. With DD1 I had a few people say things and it made me feel like a bad mum before the baby even popped out.
Eta- coffee was the big one. My OB said it was fine so I enjoyed my 1 latte a day. I did get a few comments or would you like decaf ummm NO😈

I don't ask or tell people. When I was pregnant with dd I was in charge of buying alcohol for a work party. Off I went and bought a large quantity of wine, beer and spirits. It didn't even cross my mind that people would think anything until the male worker made a comment as he was lifting the case of beer into my car. I laughed and said 'well, this is nothing. Though I've cut back a bit'. And off I went with him looking at me in disgust.

I get comments from a lot of people about how I should eat better. I'm a picky eater and already know this but when you already don't feel great you sure don't want to start eating stuff that makes you wanna vomit at the best of times.

Yep. Had someone make a sly remark about how eating ham 'wasn't worth the risk while pregnant'.. Meanwhile she shoveled it down in her pregnancy. Quite amusing. Although, every bit of advice she shoved down my throat, she turned around & did the opposite.

I haven't had anyone tell me I shouldn't eat stuff (I actually get the opposite, people acting like I'm being super precious for not wanting to eat certain things). I would be appreciative though if a waiter mentioned something I might not have realised - like that the aioli was made on raw eggs and would I like a different sauce, or similar. It would only be if I then said 'oh it's ok, I'd still like the aioli' and they lectured me that I'd be annoyed.
I do sometimes worry a bit about other people silently judging me - I don't drink coffee but I will have an occasional coke/Pepsi within the caffeine limit the obstetrician gave me, but I tend to only have it at home because I feel very judged when I drink coke in public!

I've also copped a lot more "you should relax, I ate it and I was fine" than people telling me what to avoid.
With my first, I did have another pregnant mum quizzing me when I was snacking on some nuts, saying she thought you weren't allowed to have them during pregnancy. She was swilling down a JD&Coke at the time.

I was over-cautious with my food choices during pregnancy. No one told me what to eat, but I got the occasional comment from the older generation like "gee, none of this listeria business was even around back in my day".
I was strict on myself, but I don't feel compelled to lecture others on what they should eat. There are guidelines - follow them if you will, don't follow them - it's your pregnancy and your business.

I had more 'back in my day we ate what ever we wanted' crap. Drove me nuts.
I was strict with what I ate but what others do is up to them.

I got told I should eat curries. Mild as I had them, I ate a lot of butter chicken with my first because the kids dad was working in an Indian restaurant. I always had to ask people what did Indian women eat while pregnant.
I just don't think most people would dare question me on my food intake because while I was pregnant I ate a lot more then normal so most people were happy I was eating haha
