Hi mummies, does anyone of you drink coconut milk during your 3rd trimester? Does it trigger early labour? When can I start drinking it? Any benefits? Because my body is so heaty right now :(

Yes u can drink. It's is v normal to be heaty body in the 3rd trimester but just in moderation. Once or twice a wk and just one cup. Never hear of it triggering labor as the 2 are not really related. I drank a few times throughout pregnancy 3rd trimester. No real benefits except cooling and good source of electrolytes. The rest of the "cleaner baby" theory is actually not true - cleaner baby is related to how near 40wks u are

Yes i did. But not too sure whether will trigger early labor. I drank it & ate the flesh near my due date to get labor started. After 1-2 days my contractions begins. Maybe u can try to eat green bean soup?

I did. But nope it didn't trigger any early labor whatsoever. Never heard of it. If you are worried why dont you take barley, or chrysanthemum tea instead?
