Herbal teas are off-limits? 

(clearly, I’m not the best person to advise on this!)

BothCoasts:  I know, right!! I only found this out a couple of weeks ago!!!

I now just drink warm water and I have a decaf tea/coffee when I’m out (approx once every two weeks).

I bought different varieties of rooibos teas to drink.  I like the earl grey with milk best.  I also have peppermint and lemon ginger.  I drink a large mug of orange pekoe with milk in the morning.

You shouldn’t drink teas that contain hibiscus while pregnant. Check the ingredients, it’s in a lot of them.

I’ve been drinking only peppermint tea. It’s safe, and helps with nausea. I know you can limit caffeine but I have just stopped all caffeine, so no black tea. I also don’t drink decaf (even before I was pregnant) because of the processes to make it decaf. I was also recommended to not drink green tea and chamomile, though my midwife did say chamomile was probably ok.

Why is tea bad? And hisbiscus? Maybe I’ll get flamed… but I don’t understand all the hype around giving up a ton of food when pregnant. I can understand the obvious ones like alcohol, but most of them I’m like wtf… if it’s safe for you not pregnant, why is it suddenly not safe? People have been having babies for literally millions of years, and only recently did we get all these lists of foods to avoid. Just my opinion!

lozzle22:  There are some foods that are potentially more dangerous than having a single glasS of wine. Obviously, certain things are just to be cautious but I know people prefer to be safe than sorry. From someone who’s had MCs I really don’t want a reason to blame myself if something went wrong!

phoebephoebo:  I can understand that. I think I’m just upset because I love tea so much  love your username by the way!

vintagelover:  Fennel tea. It sounds kind of yucky…but all that’s inside is fennel seeds ground up, and it’s a little bit sweet. I got it because it has qualities that can help you #2 and I need that now! I think it’s kind of working, I need to drink it a bit more frequently perhaps.

lozzle22:  it’s suddenly not safe…because you’re pregnant. Certain foods can cause miscarriages. I’m not sure what is so “wtf” about that.

I’m sure most people would be fine eating/drinking these things in moderation (I drink a cup of coffee a day still) but there are definitely risks that people should be aware of.

I drink a black tea once a day and then have a blackberry mojito one that has mint in it to help the nauseau when I get it.  I was drinking green tea but read that it can block some of the folic acid so I cut down on that and have it in moderation.
