Does anyone know if it is ok to drink tea (as in tea bags)? I'm losing my voice thanks to my allegies and thinking about hot tea to help. :)

It's OK to drink but I heard to drink it weak. Tea has fenols not spelled right and might be the wrong word but it's an f word that makes it hard to absorb iron. It's safe but just not a lot.

My doctor told me that tea is safe to drink and a good alternative to coffee. I only have 1 cuppa coffee in the morning. Please don't forget your water though xx

Decaffeinated tea is best when pregnant and I found it tastes exactly the same as normal tea bags

Yes, but apparently not green tea, because it blocks the absorption of folic acid.

I went mad on tea in my first trimester, because I couldn't drink coffee (It mad me ill) I would drink up to 10 cups a day. My doc wasn't concerned when I told him. I am half way through my pregnancy now and all is fine....
