I was drinking 1 cup of a RRL/nettle infusion daily from TTC to about week 4 of this pg. But I was having increasingly loose stools, pretty much to the point of diarrhea when I stopped. There's a lot of magnesium and other vitamins in there so who knows what I was sensitive to. My acupuncturist said that there is an idea in Chinese Medicine to avoid herbs while pregnant if at all possible and also that the baby could 'go' with the 'flow' of diarrhea, etc. Since then, I've read a recommendation to start drinking the 'pregnancy tea' around week ?16 or so through the remainder of the pg, so that's what I plan to do. I was a little wigged out by the loose stools, which is not at all normal for me.
