Green tea contains about 40-50 milligrams of caffeine. Decaffeinated green tea does still contain a bit of caffeine, however the amount is usually only about .4 milligrams. Other than the caffiene in it there is no other reason why you can't have it.. So if you don't mind Consuming caffiene while pregnant go for it.. Just make sure you're not drinking too much..
I have heard it blocks absorption of folic acid.
I've been told not to drink it. It's on the print out list that my doctor gave me of what not to eat.
Huh.. It's not on the stuff my doctor gave me and I got a big fat binder full of stuff, nor does it say anything about it not being safe on the *****************.org website just cautions about the caffeine. by the way the website I mentioned is an awesome website, it is loaded with pretty much anything pregnancy related.. Should check it out. But I will definetly see if I can find studies done on green tea and pregnancy now..

I think because I'm high risk, I have to stay away from stuff with serious caffeine, which green tea has. But a glass or so probably wouldn't hurt.
! cup of green tea a day is ok any more than that and I would worry abit about the folic acid absorbtion, but you can get decaf green tea and I'm sure this would be fine :)
