    Hi subha
    congratulations on your pregnancy. Eat well and stay healthy. coming to your queries its better to avoid caffeine during pregnancy. you can drink herbal teas if you can't exist without tea.
    for constipation try to eat one or two bananas a day.
    send email to this id you'll get the garbharakshambikai songs.

    DONT drink herbal tea as the other OP suggested!! Some mix of herbal teas have some particular herbs that are not good for pregnant women & can induce labor / premature problems..

    1/2 cup of tea should be no problem.. but try to avoid if you can..

    try & do yoga and meditation to keep your mind at rest.. and relax you are in the most beautiful phase of your life.. enjoy it!! As for the songs.. listen to any songs that make you feel good .. or listen to bhajans or chanting cds..

    constipation - you should have asked your doctor more about the medication she gave you.. try having yoghurt & banana to help with the problem..

    Hello!
    Congratulations on your pregnancy!!!
    weeks 6-8, I had constipation problems, so I started eating 1 or 2 bananas and it has helped my constipation. Also drink plenty plenty of water. abt the medication for this, you need to check with your dr.
    I am also having problems with sleeping at nights... I am wide awake by 1 AM and up until abt 5-6Am.. so what I do is try and sleep whenever i feel like... take frequent naps an hr or 2 at a time.. by the time you are in your 2nd trimester, you will start sleeping better. dont worry..
    abt tea, be careful when you are taking herbal teas. some may cause premature contractions... what I do is take very very light tea(lots of milk and less tea decoction) occasionally...
    when is your EDD?
    all said, take plenty of rest, drink lots of water and eat a banana a day(yellow ones)

    Cheers :)
