    Is Apple Cider Vinegar ok to drink during the first trimester?

    I am 6 weeks into my pregnancy. But I have all along been consuming apple cider vinegar before my pregnancy as I have a constipation history before. It helps to clear the bowels. Am wondering if it is okay to still consume it during pregnancy as the internet doesn't have much information pertaining to this.

    Also, how often are we allowed to sneak a cold beverage as I am not a "hot beverage" person.

    heee!! I consumed apple cider vinegar too when i was in my first trimester but i didnt know i was pregnant! I guess no harm cuz baby is all fine, thank god. I took about a tsp with warm water every morning so i guess it's not such a large amt.

    So did you still continue to take it after you have found out about your pregnancy?

    i stopped after that cuz I was busy with my mom in icu, plus i just didnt like the sour taste early in the morning.

    but i dont think it's harmful for the mom and baby as it has alkalising effects. a tsp or 2 diluted in water sounds safe to me. maybe you wld like to check with your gynea during your next visit.

    Re: Is Apple Cider Vinegar ok to drink during the first trimester?

    I used apple cider vinegar as salad dressing (try to eat salad at least every 2 days) and I think it's fine in small quantities. I read that alkalising foods help with morning sickness so hoping that's true ... But, I have read that preganant women shouldn't take flaxseed oil (which I use to use for my dressing together with the apple cider) so I have switched to olive oil instead.

    Re: Is Apple Cider Vinegar ok to drink during the first trimester?

    is it? i'm taking flaxseed oil supplement everyday! it's to replace fish oil supplement for omega 3... because i'm vegetarian and my gynae told me to eat flaxseed oil instead of fish oil.

    alkalising food is good for the body so i guess ACV should be ok even during pregnancy? as long as dont over consume??

    Re: Is Apple Cider Vinegar ok to drink during the first trimester?

    Hi Felicity,

    Flaxseed oil contains phytoeostrogen and some resaerchers beleive it may have an effect on women's oestrogen production which can be harmful during pregnancy. Here are a few articles I've found:

    Omega-3 fish oil | flaxseed oil
    Should I Avoid Flax Seed During Pregnancy?
    Flaxseed: MedlinePlus Supplements

    I find that doctors in general are not very knowlegeable about nutrition! I think better be on the safe side even if there are "no conclusive studies"
