Thanks for writing to us.
Whatever you have during the pregnancy usually shows an effect on the fetus. The cold items like ice cream are best avoided during pregnancy as extreme change in temperatures exposes you to a higher risk of illnesses which will indirectly affect your baby also. Avoid junk food and have a plenty of healthy and nutritious diet for your baby's health.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
