No: These are fine during pregnancy, but they might exacerbate a common problem called reflux disease. If they cause acid reflux, then consider other food choices!

Yes: Studies have shown that spicy foods are in the mouth of the beholder. The sensation of spicy is due to an enzyme. This is a genetic thing. Spicy foods don't burn your stomach or affect the baby.
