    Hi everyone! I was on the Long term boards for years and then finally got my BFP on Friday from donor eggs! So happy but need to be cautious too as its so early. But never had a BFP in nearly 5 years so that's very exciting!

    I'm not ready to start a pregnancy journal yet and am mainly staying around the TTC journals still but thought I would have a peek on here!

    I have cut down on caffeine (stopped completely for previous rounds of IVF but got headaches so it was counter-productive!) & am drinking fruit tea instead, plus lots of water that I already did. I wasn't sure if raspberry tea is safe to drink in early pregnancy, does anyone know? I heard that raspberry leaf tea can cause the uterus to relax so might cause miscarriage, but I wondered if the fruit part is ok? Can't find much on the internet.

    Thanks ladies! :coffee:

    wow congratulations that's amazing!! I actually read some of your posts last week so its brilliant to see you have your BFP.
    when I was pregnant with my now 6 year old son I drank raspberry leaf tea from 35 weeks, I had him at 37 weeks and the labour was extremely fast and extremely painful (a million times more painful then my other VB baby) it might have just been a coincidence but I certainly won't be drinking it this time round lol x
