Question safe during pregnancy?

Hi everyone ,
I have a couple questions about the safety of a few things during pregnancy(I am 5wks along)...
I take suppliments regularily but have changed what I take daily since TTC. I've always taken 1000mg primrose oil daily- is this safe? I have stopped since I've found out I'm pregnant. Right now I'm just taking a multi, folic acid, calcium, and vit E.....I don't drink milk and only eat limited dairy products, so am curious to know what the recommend daily requirement for calcium is during pregnancy, and what type of calcium is best?? I'm not seeing my doctor until next week.

Also, does anyone know if decaf coffee/tea is ok? Or red raspberry tea leaves?? What about green tea?? I love a cup of tea at night but am unsure what I can safely have.

Any advice is appreciated.

Re: safe during pregnancy?

Just wanted to say real quickly that I've read in several places that Red Raspberry tea is EXCELLENT for pregnant women, and often considered "the pregnant woman's tea". So I thought you should know about that. You will have to do some research on the other things, for I'm not real sure about them. However, I would advise against coffee, it just sounds like a bad idea to me, even if it's decaf. I bet green tea is alright though, but you'll have to check it out. Good luck.
