I have never heard that pregnant women should avoid cinnamon

I have never heard that pregnant women should avoid cinnamon as it may cause contractions and risk of pre term delivery. Occasional cinnamon in tea, sprinkled on toast, etc shouldn't cause this, I am thinking perhaps in larger does taken via supplements or ingested daily might be ill-advised. What does the current research say?

I ve seen a few similar posts; however, I had ultrasound cavitation done on my arms within the last week and yesterday found out I m 5 weeks pregnant. Many of the websites prompting this form of weight loss therapy advise against pregnant women using this treatment. I m concerned that it may have altered the cells or caused damage to the embryo. The only journals I can find about the risks talk about potential damage to hearing (given the high pitched sound), which would be later in the fetus s development, but I m having difficulty finding out more. Any advice would be much appreciated.
