26 weeks pregnant
"The concern regarding the safety of apple cider vinegar during pregnancy centers on the paucity of available research demonstrating that it is safe, according to EMed TV. In particular, concerns rest with the ingestion of unpasteurized vinegars or supplements, which may not actually be comprised of what the manufacturers report on the label. J. Dean and P. Kendall report concerns regarding harmful bacteria of unpasteurized foods and safety for pregnant women. They state "some food-borne illnesses can cause a woman to have a miscarriage, stillbirth or serious health problems for the baby after birth." Food-borne illnesses may be carried in unpasteurized juices, and although the acetic acid in vinegar may protect against this, little evidence exists. It is simply not worth the risk. Apple cider vinegar may also lower potassium levels if taken with certain medications and may inhibit the impact of your prescribed medications. Discuss taking apple cider vinegar with your doctor prior to taking it."
