Hi Mummies..i am in my first trimester...wondering what food is nutritional for my baby and what are the 'no no' food?
yeah no raw foods at all, chao ta overcooked foods aso better dont, internal organs better dont aso, cheeses n igh mercury fishes.
AS far as i can remember, I only eat lots of fruits, vegetables, fish, & meat. In Phil. gynea says I can eat anything I want. But everytime I feel nauseated, i eat fruits.
think still can eat salmon sashimi.... just eat in moderation.... I also had that during my preggie period...
Selina_Fong, maybe can ask your mother in law or your mum? Or can also check with your gynae if you're not sure...
but eat everything in moderation... even if you're a coke lover, also the same... everything in moderation...
I read online that we cannot eat bittergourd. Bad for the pregnancy.
I've never heard of it before till I was searching for bittergourd recipes.
Now dont dare eat
Some mummies from other forums commented cannot take too much birdnests, especially in early tri., coz too liang (cooling)
However, I have been taking them every day, 1 spoonful since my 7th weeks till now.
So far so good. I notice my skin is better too.
Am taking cordycerp soups too. dont know what difference does it really makes, just taking it coz ppl say its good.
They say have to avoid eating big fishes and fishes that swim along seabeds like stingrays too, coz high in mercury. Tuna is one of those high mercury content fish.
Heard Delmontes bananas also cannot eat, coz cooling.
My gynae told me everything also can eat except for raw and uncooked food.
She told me that all fruits are good for me but to avoid taking too much durian as it is rather fattening for the mummy. Watermelon can eat but only those you prepare at home cos you need to eat it as soon as it is cut so as to prevent the watermelon from absording bateria/dust in the surrounding.
Of course I also heard from my mother in law that we should not take certain type of bananas, should not take cooling fruits/ drinks. Sigh! So many things cannot take...so boring man.
eh.. i was told to eat durians at e end of e trimester! good for baby! cant rem y though..
canot take those long bananas.. short ones can..
heard durians build up baby immune system or sumting? but not too much though cos too heaty.... during 3rd trimester can take coconut..good for baby complexion. just no raw food. take in more fish like salmon for the omega n calcium..drink more milk..i drink at least 2 glasses of fresh milk everyday ever since my 2nd tri.
Hello! New in here. Currently in my 11th week. Welcoming my 2nd trimester now. I didn't know TUNA was a no-no. I ate some last week!! Two servings still! I dont't like Fishes. My hubby kept forcing me to eat them. sometimes raising his voice on that too! =X
If I remember correctly , I didn't take fruits like watermelon , orange . Told by my folks that watermelon too 'liang' , cooling .
Orange will cause phlegm .
Cannot drink coffee , tea , cold water . Can't remember the reason to this .
During my pregnancy , I ate alot of vegetables and mostly fast food .
My grandma told me to refrain from eating muttons during pregnancy .
thanks dear! anw, bird nest and 'gan bei' porridge can eat during 12th week? i ate some, abit worried -.-
my list of no-no food...
1) chin chow water / dessert (too cooling)
4) durian (if your baby is already quite big size) - eat in moderation
5) tao hui (soya bean dessert)
But soya bean drink can drink all you can. Apparantly, it is good for baby's complexion. I drank a lot of it during both my pregnancies and both of them have nice fair skin when born.
