I believe eating and drinking in moderation. No mater what you eat or drink, do it in moderation and things should work out fine. Avoid cooling stuffs from TCM point of view especially in the 1st 3 months of pregnancy. In pregnancy, functions of pregnant women’s body operate weaker than usual, especially digestive function. After eating ice cream and cold drinks, blood vessels in stomach and bowel will have spasm. Fluid in stomach will secrete and this thing makes digestive function reduce remarkably. It will create dyspepsia and diarrhea.
