Atlhough you can: Drink hot or cold water while pregnant; from a traditional chinese medicine perspective - room temperature is optimal. The concepts are a little complex & come from the perspective of eastern medicine. See: http://universaltcm.Wordpress.Com/education-information/cold-foods-cold-drinks-caused-health-problems/.

Neither: Though drinking hot water doesn't sound appetizing. A lot of women in pregnancy find tea to be helpful. But nothing beats a glass of cold water on an early autumn day.
