A common question and concern for Muslim women has been the rules regarding fasting and making up fasts or paying fidya during pregnancy and breastfeeding. There are numerous classical answers amongst the major scholars and companions. It should be made clear that there is one primary cause for these differences that will help us understand the issue.
Fidya is an amount of money or food that is paid to the poor by the one who is not able to fast. It applies to those who have enduring medical conditions that make them unable to fast currently AND in the future. Such a person would pay fidya equivalent to feeding a poor person two meals for each day of fasting they have missed.

Praise be to Allaah.
With regard to breastfeeding mothers – and also pregnant women – two scenarios may apply:
-1- If the woman is not affected by fasting, and fasting is not too difficult for her, and she does not fear for her child, then she is obliged to fast, and it is not permissible for her not to fast.
-2- If the woman fears for herself or her child because of fasting, and fasting is difficult for her, then she is allowed not to fast, but she has to make up the days that she does not fast.
In this situation it is better for her not to fast, and it is makrooh for her to fast. Some of the scholars stated that if she fears for her child, it is obligatory for her not to fast and it is haraam for her to fast.
Al-Mirdaawi said in al-Insaaf (7/382): It is makrooh for her to fast in this case… Ibn ‘Aqeel said: If a pregnant woman or a breastfeeding mother fears for her pregnancy or her child, then it is not permissible for her to fast in this case, but if she does not fear for her child then it is not permissible for her not to fast.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked in Fataawa al-Siyaam (p. 161):
If a pregnant woman or breastfeeding mother does not fast with no excuse, and she is strong and in good health, and is not affected by fasting, what is the ruling on that?
It is not permissible for a pregnant woman or breastfeeding woman not to fast during the day in Ramadaan unless they have an excuse. If they do not fast because they have an excuse, then they have to make up the missed fasts, because Allaah says concerning one who is sick (interpretation of the meaning): “and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number [of days which one did not observe Sawm (fasts) must be made up] from other days”
Pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers come under the same heading as those who are sick.

Last week Saturday as I was preparing for iftaar, I was cooking rice and bean at around past 5:30pm, the food was almost done, but I think I had forgotten I was fasting and then tasted the food to confirm if the ingredients are okay.
Now the funny aspect was that, after tasting the food, I then realised I was very hungry, so I took a plate and put some portion in it and right there in the kitchen I started eating this food. I almost finished the plate before I suddenly realised I was fasting, and so I stopped.
But sadly enough as at the time I realised about the fasting, I had not yet drank water and the food was hot with pepper, so I became even more uncomfortable than before. I managed myself and after a while my body became normal.
It was a very funny situation and it would have been very perfect, if I had taken water before realising I was fasting, but in all, I regretted that it happened
