Tea and pregnancy: Drinking hibiscus tea during pregnancy is not harmful and is not a reason to present to the ER.

Problems?: Are you having any side effects from drinking the tea? You can certainly go to the ER to be checked out (they will send you to L&D) but you did not mention any problems. Just drinking tea is not a cause for a hospital trip.

I think it's ok: The only warning I can find is to avoid the tea in the first trimester. Shouldn't cause ant problem at this point in your pregnancy.

Sure is!: You are carrying and feeding a rapidly growing human being inside you! in addition, moms usuually become somewhat anemic during the latter stages of pregnancy, so this leads to easier fatigue as well. This is your body's way of trying to get you to slow down and rest up before labor starts and you have a newborn to care for. Listen to your body and get extra rest.
