Effects Of Drinking Cold Water During Pregnancy
" I do not really drink cold drinks before I was pregnant, but now I am starting to crave for cold drinks and ice cream. My gynae told me that no matter hot or cold drinks, as long as you get fluid into your body, all is good. It is better than avoiding to drink all together. I had serious dehydration during my 1st 3 mths due to super bad vomitting symptions. And could not even sip any amount of water. The only thing I could do was to suck on ice-cubes, such that the melted water will drip drop by drop into my body! That was the only way to get fluid to my body and I recovered cause of that! Of cause, my parents and parents-in-law would always advice not to drink or to cut down on cold drinks as the coldness will cause contraction etc and also they say the baby will be weaker after birth. Especially our womb needs to be warm for a better environment for the child. So all in all, I still think drinking a little cold stuff is ok, just not too much. Most importantly is to get the appropriate amount of water each day to your body! "
