    Hi Cheer and Sanravi,

    I saw your Mail and request today only.:-D Now I am in India and past one week I had work pressure. (Because after 3 months I am here). So I want some time to give the recipes.

    But generally you can eat what ever you like.:yes: And eat according to your doctor's advice. You can take Soups, Greens(Keerai) , Fresh vegetable and Fruits to avoid 'constipation'.

    Good Luck Ladies and Can you tell me your month?:wink:
