Unknown, prob. fine: As is often the case, there is little research on this subject. Some people say that goji berries contain betaine (; perhaps other compounds) that can cause miscarriage but if you did not have a miscarriage in the first 3 months it is unlikely now. Others recommend 10 gr/day- see http://www.Thesuperfoods.Net/goji-berry/should-you-take-goji-berries-during-pregnancy i think you should not worry!
