Eng’s Heritage food poisoning: Pregnant woman says she vomited and had diarrhoea over 100 times, Singapore News

It was just a simple bowl of wonton noodles, but it was enough to land one pregnant woman in hospital with food poisoning.

Speaking to Shin Min Daily News, the woman, who is seven months pregnant, said she was warded for five days. She also vomited and had diarrhoea over 100 times after eating at Eng’s Heritage’s Northpoint City outlet on Jan 7.

The 30-year-old had visited the wonton noodle chain with her husband, 32.

Mere hours after eating there, her husband began experiencing sudden sharp pain in his abdomen, she recounted.

When to Share Pregnancy News: I’m Glad I Shared ‘Early’

Monday morning, my doctor confirmed a complete miscarriage, meaning the pregnancy had been lost and everything had passed. Monday afternoon, I told my family and friends that I was no longer pregnant. Sadness, confusion, and shame ensued.

“It’s incredibly important for women to remember that when it comes to any ‘shame’ associated with an early loss, generally speaking, most times, there is nothing they could have done differently to prevent that loss,” says Dr. Roussos-Ross.

Approximately 50% of all cases of first-trimester loss are due to fetal chromosomal abnormalities, according to ACOG, meaning the body detects when a pregnancy is nonviable and terminates it early as a result.
