Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

You should talk with your doctor about what foods are safe and what foods you should avoid during pregnancy. He or she should be able to give you a list. Figs and almonds should be fine.
If everything is fine then you welcome to eat figs and almonds; as well as anything. Enjoy. ;P
Don't drink hard liquor, limit wine to 3oz once in a while, don't drink more than 12oz of coffee per day. Eat at reputable establishments, don't eat too much fish; omega-3 good, but mercury = bad.Eat food you like, smaller meals though: you'll rapidly run out of real estate... smaller meals more often. In my 2nd closing in on 3rd tri. Had sushi a few days ago: the kid within loved it. Same with spicy foods. Srsly: what do women in Thailand do when they're preggo, eat rice and beans? Nope: they'll continue to eat what they love. Figs and almonds are high in essential vitamins and fibre: enjoy 'em!
(actually, in retrospect I should have said: "NO! DO NOT EAT Almonds nor figs! Especially the smoked almonds and fresh figs! Immediately pack up those dangerous goods and send them to ME! I will dispose of them safely for you!" ;)
