    Actually my mom keep telling me not to drink cos it's cooling. I think it's okay since so many mummies here drank and their baby turn out fine. Yes that's what i heard. Those big green coconuts.

    First 3 months of the pregancy need to take a lot of tonic cos that is the time when the baby will absorb the most therefore, drinking heaty herbal soup is ok but have to avoid cooling stuff. 4-7months, can take normal food, baby won't absorb the tonic much. Last stage, going to give birth soon, should avoid tonics or heaty stuff cos will delay the delivery. Therefore, drinking coconut at the last stage is the best.

    First 3 months of the pregancy its the best time to take herbal soup, tonic and ect as the foetus is forming and therefore will absorb all the goodness of the tonic. However, as the foetus is unstable, it's best to avoid cooling stuff. 4-7months, best to take normal food cos baby will not absorb the tonic much. Last stage of pregancy, best to avoid heaty stuff as this will delay delivered. So taking coconut or gingko nut barley is ok.

    So difficult to get the green coconut...

    Because I am staying at Bukit Panjang, and not much market here...

    The only chance is after I visit gynae yesterday, hubby bring me to Clementi to take lunch and finally manage to order the green coconut.

    Anyone heard of this saying before and if it's true, does anyone knows which stage is the suitable stage to drink? Was told that it can't be drank during early stage and also cannot be too late as it will then affect the baby.
    Drink during last trimester, but also cannot too much. Drink 1-2 coconut per week. Drink too much will cause baby to be too cool.
