Yes: No harm in indulging your craving some; however, gummy bears are basically sugar. You need to make sure you are eating a balanced diet for a healthy pregnancy. Also, too many sweets could result in excess weight gain which can have negative effects on pregnancy and increase risks of diabetes. Enjoy your gummy bears - in moderation!
