Pregnant after a Loss

Cold water?

So a really dumb question not worth calling the nurse over. I know for ultrasounds the techs have women drink cold water to try to get baby to move. So what about drinking cold water other times. I'm always drinking cold water and wonder if this bothers my baby. Anyone have any ideas.
Ps. I'm off from work over the summer so these are the dumb things I think about! Lol.

Re: Cold water?

  • Cold water will make your baby grow a tail. They didn't tell you that??

    Just teasing. I think you're probably fine.

    10 fingers, 10 toes, and a tail! Yes!!!!!! As long as she does t grow scales!

  • Drinking cold liquids gets baby to move for any reason, so when you get further along and want to try and get kick counts, or having a quiet day, it's an easy trick to get some reassurance.  ONe trick for turning a breech baby is to put a cold compress on the top of your stomach too, which the idea that baby will move away from the cold. I guess technically yes, it "bothers the baby"... I wouldn't worry about it that much though.

    Thanks I figured it would be on the no no list if it was bad but just wondering what it would do I try to not use my doppler too much because it can be annoying so I started wondering about the water trick. I don't want to give baby brain freeze! I hate those!!!
