Ladies, does anyone know if it is okay to eat shiitake mushrooms during pregnancy? I have cooked and eated 125g grams, and then heard that these could cause contractions... There is lots of contradictory infoon the internet and I am wondering if anyone has had any negative experience with these? Sorry this sounds quite banal...

No idea, but I've been eating them too! No contractions have resulted...hope someone with more knowledge will be along soon.

Dunno, but I used to work in a cafe that served them on a pizza, and people regularly referred to them as 'shit-ache mushrooms'

Lol disco - i now see these mushrooms in a whole new light.

I imagine it would take a lot of these mushrooms to cause contractions (I am no contraction expert).
