I have heard several ppl told me that taking durian is good for baby, is it true?
i heard from so many people that they will help baby gain weight.. i did take them during my pregnancy n i did gain weight but my baby did not.. haha.. she only weighed 2.6 kg at birth.. full term baby.. but agree with apollo mum not to take so much coz they r high in sugar content..
Agree with the mummies on this. Too much sugar intake, be it during pregnancy or not is not good, coz you won't wanna risk developing gestational diabetes during pregnancy.
Here's an article on Gestational Diabetes:
What is Gestational Diabetes? - American Diabetes Association
As long as the baby is healthy, I think size doesn't matters. Just remember everything eaten in moderation...

Thanks for the advise...i'll watch out the sugar level...but recently have the craving..haha...just an excuse to eat durian...
Try not to eat too much.. later baby grow too big... & is quite sweet...
AS other mummy say .. dont take too much .. Cos is sweet .. I did took some on my 3rd trim . Soem mummy gain weigh but baby not .. As for mi my baby & i gain weigh .. ... ....
As aso quite heaty .. If you eat drink more water as well
for me i just took it once and my baby and my weight go up alot until gynae suspect it is G.D and want me to take glucose test as precaution... guess i can stop taking durian totally ..
just back from check-up....gynae said both baby and mummy are underweight....so....hmm....i think i'll eat a bit more......but 30wk at 1.2kg....really too small?
i never take a single mouth at all. but i think eat abit ok one.. i have a friend, she takes VERY often, almost everyday. when she is 16weeks, doc say the baby too big, size of baby is 26 weeks when its suppose to be 16 weeks. omggg!
usually 16weeks tummy not obvious, but hers is superrrr big already. ha!
taking durians may not be a key solution to increase baby's weight.
alot of folks always say durians is good for pregnancy...well, the sugar level is high and it takes 3 days to be eliminated from the body. I once kena sugar in urine when i went for my routine checkup.
because of eating durians, i got an oversized baby, over 4 kilos....and kena a live c-section under emergency.
