Okay ladies....how much are you drinking...how much SHOULD we be drinking throughout the pregnancy? When to increase?
As for amounts.. I've been looking for a solid consensus... there isn't one Some say none until third trimester and then only a cup a day, while others say 1-2 cups during the first, 2-4 during the second and up to half a gallon during the third, unless of course you are at risk for miscarriages, etc etc
I wrote the recipe for the tea I'm drinking in my grimoire and the latter or the two amounts is what I wrote in.....mainly because I have found that I loooove rrl tea
