Very safe: I am extremely glad that you are choosing to use creatine as your bodybuilding supplement rather than an anabolic steroid. The former is for real athletes; the latter is for cheaters / lawbreakers. Remember that most women strongly prefer the "natural bodybuilder" look, feel, and attitude. Best wishes.

Creatine: Creatine is safe but can promote muscle tears if you are lifting heavily.

No: Although food poisoning can be miserable in general it will not hurt the fetus. Most cases can be managed at home and resolve in 24-48 hours. The key is to avoid dehydration. If you develop fever, have bloody diarrhea, have contractions or can not stay hydrated then yes you should be seen in the hospital.

You need to change: You need to learn to eat a varied diet, rich in an assortment of fruits and vegetables. You need to set an example for your child so learn not to be so picky now.
