Drinking coconut water

It may be the old wives' tale, but I am advised to take coconut water; especially now in my last month of my pregnancy.

It is supposed to cleanse and cool down my body and same time, help with the new baby's complexion - some said for a "clean" complexion while others said for fairer skin.

Hmm, why no body told me that in my previous pregnancies??  Or probably because I never ask and I always thought it is "prohibited" drink to take during the whole term of pregnancy.  But since I was advised by my MIL to take coconut drink, I have been taking it once a week starting early this month.  And soon, (actually now) I can take twice or more a week.  Still not advisable to take daily since it is cooling. 

Don't know how true and does it helps with the easy labour and "cleaner" baby, but I know that coconut drink is rich in nutrients.  It helps to prevent Urinary Trait Infection, digestive problems and other health problem.  It is essentially fat and cholesterol free; and not to mention coconut drink is nice to be drank.  I love coconut drink even before I am pregnant.

I like to drink fresh coconut juice and eat the coconut flesh. Hope it is good for you during this time too. Take care Rose. Have a good day.

Is it? I hear they sell fresh coconut water at a shop opposite the Dewan Suarah market... I think it's "cold" though - dunno good or not for pregnant women.
