Can you just save it for later?  I dunno much about whether it’s safe to drink or not.  I’ve never been pregnant so I’ve never gotten the full run down of dos and don’ts, lol

Just save it for after if you’re worried

I tried finding info… all the sites I found are really vague about why you shouldn’t have hibiscus while pregnant& TTC. “Might bring on menses” Honestly, I’m going to keep having it from time to time. At the end of the day, I think you’d have to drink a lot of it to cause a miscarriage.

I had never heard of this.. hmm… I have no idea if any of my teas contain it, but it might be good for AF though!

@Peffy:  Ah, I didn’t realize you aren’t pregnant yet. Yeah, you can definitely drink it before the 2ww!

Tea is so difficult!  It seems like almost every tea has something weird in it that “might” cause miscarriage, although really, who knows.  One other kind of tea that I’ve read to steer clear of is Chai Tea because of the star anise, which is a shame because I looooooove Coffee Bean and Tea leaf chai tea lattes.  Personally, I’ll drink whatever tea I want prior to O (especially green tea, which is supposed to be good for EWCM), and then steer clear of the questionable tea after O.  Black tea is actually probably the safest.

Yeah passion tea has hibiscus it’s what they serve at starbucks. I wouldn’t recommend it, but during the tww is really your level of comfortability.  I used to work there and the pregos avoided it like the plague
