Can extremely cold ice water harm a baby? I'm asking because I put a gallon jug in the fridge with water in it. Well I just opend it after a few weeks, and put some ice in it and took a drink and my belly hurts and it gave me a headache.

Maybe I should google the answer

No, your baby is fine. What you are experiencing is your body's reaction to the abrupt temperature change, AKA Brain Freeze!   You body regulates the temperature of your baby well enough to compensate for that, it won't harm a fetus.  Its nothing like getting in a way too hot whirlpool or something.

I made ice the other day and had a gallon of cold water in the fridge normally I fill up water bottles. I decided to open the jug of water and put some in a glass with ice and after drinking a small amount got a huge headache and my belly started to hurt. I just don't want it too cold on my son that's not due for a few more months.
