Durian's, local fruits!

Is it okay to eat durian for pregnant women? My husband is Sabahan people. Durian? some of local fruits in Sabah that's famous and one of Sabahan favourite fruit's! Even tho it smells but it tastes good! So can or not? My mother-in-law said, the pregnant woman can eat durian's but cannot eat too much. I'm confused cause it's too really yummy.

I have 3 children age 19, 11 & 6 I have eaten durian throughout( not every day but quite often) my 3 pregnancies as my hubby is a durian lover. After I delivered, there was a time when I don't feel like eating durian. Now all my 3 children don't like durian My babies were 3.34kg, 3.36kg & 3.5kg at birth

Yummy, I craved for durians too when I had my boy, but OK to eat in moderation (if no other health issues like diabetes) enjoy :)

Should be ok if you are healthy! Durians are high in sugar though, so if you have GD, you might want to avoid eating durians.

It’s ok to eat in moderation. Do watch out for the high sugar level especially if you have gestational diabetes.
