Welcome to Healthcare Magic
It is better to avoid uncooked rice as it can stimulate bowels and result in diarrhoea and malabsorption which can mean disturbance to the pregnancy and loss of vital nutrients to the baby. You should eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables and eat only cooked rice. Follow your Doctor's orders. Go for regular Antenatal checkups as recommended by your Doctor.
