Can I continue to drink coffee or tea?

While there is no evidence that of caffeinated beverages, such as tea, coffee or colas, cause birth defects, but some studies indicate that heavy use of these beverages may be associated with a slight increase in your risk of miscarriage in the first and second trimesters. According to a study by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, there is no harm in drinking up to three cups of coffee a day. However, most experts advise limiting consumption to no more than two caffeinated beverages a day, or switching to decaf.

Can I drink herbal tea? 

Although they are natural, growing evidence suggests some herbs may be harmful to pregnant women. They are best avoided, though if you do choose to drink herbal teas, stick to those with ingredients found in an ordinary diet, such as cinnamon, orange, lemon, and apple. And before consuming or using any herbal item, you should always consult your doctor.
