I don't think that the pregant woman is what got you sleepy. I think the eating for 2 hours is what made you sleepy, very likely it was what you ate and the amount that made you sleepy, digesting food takes energy from the body and if you eat to much especially if you are eating a lot of carbs it is going to make you sleepy. Yes, I have eaten with pregnant women and I myself have been pregnant 4 times.

Sure, most of my friends are females:) It's a little strange. As I think usually a pregnant woman will feel tired or sleepy easily. Perhaps at that time you were really tired. In fact sometimes I feel nervous to have a meal with a pregnant friend. As I am afraid whether she will be alright when we are eating. I am worried the baby will be born at that moment:) I love China

I also heard this myth, and my friends also believe in this, but some doctors don't agree with this thing. Actually, I have a friend who is pregnant and we always took lunch together and sometimes shared foods but I never get sleepy or feel irritated or something. Maybe, it is just some circumstances why you are sleepy but not because you ate with a pregnant woman.
