  • i also dont know about the white strips..caffeine is fine in moderation, as long as your not constantly drinking it all day, your fine..i drink tea alot..its fine...and if you go to bed hungry, odds are you going to be sick to your stomach in the middle of the night or in the morning..thats what happens to me when i dont eat, esspecially if i dont eat again after dinner before i go to bed...i feel like im constantly eating too, like i eat and then im hungry again almost right away..its hard, im not used to eating so often..and its really hard when all you want to eat is what sounds good, and thats usually not what you have at you eat it gives the baby energy..

  • Eat when you are hungry. Idk about the white strips or Tea. Too much caffiene isn't good though.

  • I dunno about the white strips you should probably ask the dr. You can drink the tea in moderation yes, maybe one a day. And take a snack to the bedroom with youa t night, jsut in case you get hungry, there is nothing wrong with eating when you feel liek your hungry.

  • I agree with justme, you should eat if youre hungry. if youre worried about weight gain research some filling healthy snacks that are good for you when pregnant. you dont have to get up and eat cake! you can eat anything. but yeah, you needa eat for your baby. (side note; i ate taco bell everyday all summer the last few months of my pregnancy and I ended up weighing less after i had my twins that before i got pregnant because they were taking all my calories!)
    and I agree about the caffine, idk the specific tea but in general youre supposed to avoid caffine.
    idk about the white stripes, I'd ask my doctor if I were you

  • I think white strips are a no no during pregnancy. I want to say I read that somewhere...I stayed away from tea but a cup a day won't hurt, I'm sure, and eat when you're hungry or you may get sick. I felt pretty crappy if I didn't eat.
