I don't drink tea but DH was wondering if he should buy me some. Is tea bad for you while pregnant? Are there certain ones on the good list and bad list?

Any regular tea drinkers out there??

I drink tea religiously, except during the first trimester when I just can't handle it.

Are talking about herbal tea? I know someone makes a mommy's tea but I can't remember who. I'd say most everything Celestial Seasonings makes is probably safe. I don't avoid caffeine like some people though so I don't worry about it. I know some "diet" teas have questionable ingredients so you mightwant to avoid those.

I'm not a tea drinker coffee or hot coco lol nothing hot for me. But I guess DH feels bad about giving me his cold, he wants to take care of me. I was just making sure that tea wasn't a big NO!. So its mainly the caffeine issue, which some people doesn't mind.

As others said, I think tea is fine it's just the caffeine you have to watch out for.
