I am 5 weeks pregnant. 36 days ago I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks pregnant. ( http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/201270 )  I wasn't aware I was pregnant right away last month. My milk supply began to decrease, I realized my period was late and tested. To help my milk supply I drank a few cups of Mother's Milk tea. Got a very faint positive pregnancy test result. Then a week later had a miscarriage.


I am wondering if the Mother's Milk tea or the fish oil I was taking could have caused the miscarriage... This pregnancy my milk supply seems to be decreasing again but I am not drinking any tea or taking anything other than my prenatal now. I don't want to cause a miscarriage. Are my worries silly? This whole trying to keep nursing my 18mo old and maintaining pregnancy is new and unfamiliar to me. Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated!

I don't think it's silly, because I know that some of the milk-supply boosters are counter-indicated in early pregnancy (I don't remember which because I've never used any). I know oatmeal is 100% safe and helps many women keep their supply up. as well as getting enough to eat in general, getting enough rest, and drinking plenty of water.
