do you mummies drink cold drinks or milk tea daily? if yes, what is your frequency per day? i have craving for sweet cold drinks coz my tastebuds is bitter... but accoridng to the pp around me, including dear husband claimed that cold drinks are unhealthy for my baby coz he will be borned with asthma or breathing probs... is it true? sob!!!
i take like 1 or 2 cups cold sweet drinks daily.. and not forgetting ice-cream!!!
but try not to take at late nite cos it may cause tummy ache...
I think should be alright. Bcoz I drink lots of cold drink too...
Just that I stop taking tea...
i think it's more of a personal belief, there isnt any scientific proof that cold drinks are bad? be4 i was preggy i was very used to cold drinks, in fact i can hardly remember the last time i had a hot drink. after i was preggy, i continued with the habit, and i get lotsa stares from strangers, and some naggin from my in-laws.
in fact, i think im in love with coke nowadays
I think the asthma is cause by "liang" drinks not cold drinks so avoid drink like tea, coconuts etc.
I took alot of 100plus during pregnancy and baby was ok.
I think have to avoid coke coz got caffine.
My midwife told me that its actually ok to have cold drinks...Just do not put ice in them..
thanks, mummiess.... i feel beta after reading that... just can't stop taking cold drinks... hee...
I never take cold drinks only take warm drinks. Most of the time is plain water. Milk also take those hot one like Friso-Mum.
I was told by my mum to not take anything cold - doesn't matter if it's drinks or ice cream or fruit. But being in Switzerland and pregnant during winter plus spring makes this impossible. She mentioned that it can cause miscarriage and dont know what else (the reasons are always the same, I noticed) but so far, I have not't had any problems. In fact, the midwives and docs here all remark that my pregnancy is the one of the nicest and smoothers they have seen so far. (I dont't have back ache, water retention, morning sickness, etc.)
Personally, I think cold drink and ice cream are fine. Cos I had been taking that when I was pregnant. I also drink coffee but moderately.
My friend drink at least two cups of coffee when she was pregnant cos her craving was there plus she drank more than two cups before she was pregnant. Her baby is borned healthy too.
i took cold everyday during my pregnancy... bubble tea around 2-3 times per week.. =D
The water retention depends...some women start getting it from 2nd trimester onwards. Those with family history of water retention (your mum, sis and aunt all got water retention during pregnancy) have a higher risk of getting it. My friend's wife fell in this category and she had water retention in her late 2nd trimester but then around her 31st week or something like that, they found out that she had pre-eclampsia so they had to do a C-sec.
For me, what helped a lot with the water retention were a few things:
1) LOTS of water
2) Cut down on salt and sugar
4) Put up your legs regularly especially when sitting down or sleeping

i drink cold drinks all the time.
everyday for 3 meals til i give birth.
I still drink cold drinks (with ice), but I try to cut down if not necessary.
My sister (who has 2 kids) advised that it was sometimes useful to keep small cans of aerated drinks (like Coke or 100Plus) to sip on if I felt nauseous.
I completely cut out coffee once I found out I was pregnant.
Tried to still take mild tea (with milk), but it made me feel bad/nauseous, so I stopped.
I get nagged at by my hubby, mother and sisters if they see me drinking cold, gassy drinks, so I try to reduce the amount, if not, take secretly when Im eating alone. =)
Stay at Home Mummy
cocraze mummy, yeah me, too... i still drink cold drinks coz got bitter tastebuds every one and then but i try to limit once per day... i try not to drink coke coz got caffine... i also completely cut out coffee but occassionly will steal one or two slips from dear husband... i used to drink milk tea every morning so still have craving now... but limit myself to once after every few days coz i heard it is worse than cold drinks...
i also get nagged by dear husband or my colleagues... so yes, i also try to take secretly when i m alone... wahahaha!!!
I flew to Houston during my first trimester. The people there takes icy cold drinks for their 3 meals, so I was drinking icy cold drinks all along, i drink coffe too, but one cup daily
itz not true 1 ... asthma can due 2 many issues 1... not you drink cold water everyday then they will gt asthma... like dat majority of babies will b asthmatic liaoz... coz i think most preggie mummies will most likely drink cold water everyday 1 due 2 sg hot weather... *smile*
my 2 kids r born just fine... nothin happens...
just rem 2 take everything in moderation... you cant like drink cold water 4 24 hours ... like dat you will gt tummyache 1 ...
before pregnant, i simply dont like drinks like coke, sarsi etc which gives me lots of "gas".
since pregnant till now, not a day i will not crave for these gaseous drinks :S.. hehe
like most MTB will sure get lots of nagging but really can't help most of the time. :S
i m same as you, darkprincess33... i also dont like cold drinks with gas before pregnant... coz always can't stop bluring after drinking or tummy will feel bloated after drinking... but now craving like never before... hee....
