Q:

can I have dates at this time.



Yes u can. It is rich in a lot of nutrients and very healthy. I haven't seen any evidence that says you shouldn't unless your doctor advised so.

Dates are a rich source of iron and hence excellent for consumption during pregnancy. However in moderation so two or three dates can be taken. They need to be avoided only if you have gestational diabetes or are gaining weight very rapidly.
