A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy. When rice is cooked, all the germs are killed and its the best way to eat rice when you are pregnant. You should work on breaking this habit prior to "trying" to get pregnant. Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes!
