Is Pearl Milk Tea ok?

I'm at 16w now and have been craving for Pearl Milk Tea. I have been drinking it almost every day. Some said it is not good. Is it true? It's my first baby and first pregnancy. I'm getting stress because of this. Because i have drank so much and just got to know.

Hi there, pls cut down not only your bbt cravings but also other sugar intake. you may indugle in your cravings once in a while (maybe have a cheat day once a week). We will be going to take our GD test during our week 24-28..gynae suggest not to intake any sugar during the 1 mth before your GD test. I am a person who cannot live without my sweet cravings so just start to look for some healthier replacement. In my case, I drink reduced sugar soya bean milk when I craving for bbt or can just share with hubby (I drink 20% the rest he drink😏).

Thank u for the sharing mummy! i think a good idea for me to share with my hubby instead😘

I drink bbt almost daily! But I switch it up with the non milk tea versions ever since I got pregnant lol. I also replace the pearls with something healthier like rainbow jelly or aloe vera. A little goes a long way but I drink in moderation and order 0% sugar. Sometimes I crave for the chewiness of the pearls so I cheat at times. 🤣 when it’s near my GD test I curb my cravings and stop drinking for abt a week or 2.

i am a bubble tea addict but in order to avoid gestational diabetes which can become a pretty serious condition, i skipped this beverage throughout my pregnancy. But take a few sips once in a while though, when i crave for it 😜 Moderation is the key.

Yeah, not good to drink everyday. Don’t be stressed about what has happened. Just try to drink moderately from now on. Go for 25% or 0% if you want to drink. All will be fine. Don’t worry ok. Not good for you and baby.

I start drinking bbt alot when i hit 2nd trim. Always craving for it. So far baby is ok and healthy. But, drink in moderation just to satisfy your craving. If can don't drink maybe a sip or two would be better.

Best not to drink bubbletea everyday as it’s high in caffeine and sugar, which might lead to having gestational diabetes. I drank at least once or twice a month after i pass my GD test 😬

don worry. tbh, i had bubble tea almost everyday when i had my first kid. but most of the time i share with my hub. just drink in moderation and don forget your plain water too:)

I was drinking bbt everyday throughout my pregnancy. 🤭 however you might want to control your sugar level if you dont want an oversize baby. Dont need to feel stress about this!

thank u mummy! I'm relieved 😘

if im not wrong, milk tea contains caffeine and high amount of sugar. drinking almost everyday is definitely not good. once a week is fine.

i drank once a week thru out my pregnancy. its fine, i hv normal size baby n no GD. remb to control sugar lvl for ur other food as well
