1. Intestinal Gas
This is one of the most common problems that stems from eating cucumbers during pregnancy. You may also experience indigestion and belching.
2. Frequent Urination
You may feel fullness of bladder often, leading to frequent urination. This may cause discomfort, depending on the trimester of your pregnancy.
If you’re allergic to cucumbers, you may experience swelling and itching.
Cucumbers have toxins like cucurbitacins and tetracyclic triterpenoids, which lead to their bitter taste. When consumed in large quantities, these toxins can become life-threatening.
5. May Lead to Hyperkalemia
When consumed too much, the high potassium content in cucumbers causes abdominal cramps, bloating, and even affects your kidneys.
You can have an early dinner or avoid eating cucumbers 3-4 hours before you sleep, to prevent this from happening.
