<p>I am around 5 weeks pg with TONs of nausea, and just discovered that drinking black tea relieves alot of my nausea. but actually should not be drinking caffeine right? i will try to substitute it for kukicha but i am afraid it won't have the same effect....what do i think? </p>

<p>DDCC to say I wouldn't worry about it. I researched this at one time and there doesn't seem to be a correlation with miscarriage unless you drink more than 100 mg of caffeine per day, which is more than the average cup of black tea has. (According to the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caffeine" target="_blank">Wikipedia article</a> a small cup of black tea, 6 oz, has 50 mg.)</p>

<p>I also think it's fine and have been drinking tea now and then. Most providers say a cup or even two of coffee per day is fine, and coffee has more than twice the caffeine of black tea.</p>

<p>Up to 300mg of caffeine is supposed to be ok. I told my midwife I drink 2 cups of strong chai everyday & she was fine with it.  They don't want you drinking a pot of coffee a day, but some black tea everyday is fine plus it's good for you in other ways.</p>
