this is probably going to come off sounding insane, but here it is. i sometimes think that caffeine caused my miscarriage.
i usually drink 2 to 3 cups of dark black tea every day. when i found out i was preggers i cut it out. but, there was a day, that i said i'd allow myself one little cup just to get through an afternoon at work when i was exhausted. well, i had my cup and i was flying. it was almost like i had taken speed.
when i ended up miscarrying, i was measuring right about where i was the day i had that cup of tea.
now, most days, i know that many many people have caffeine their whole pregnancies with no problem and the miscarriage probably had nothing to do with what i did or didn't eat or drink.
but, late at night, i can't help but wonder if i overloaded her little heart that day.
so, for this one, i've decided i'm either sticking with one cup a day or none at all. as of today, i'm doing one cup a day.
