One of the not so joys of pregnancy is not being able to drink caffeine drinks or alcoholic ones. There is only so much decaf tea and coffee I can drink, and water, well, water is rather boring after a while.
While I was looking through my cupboards looking for something else to drink, I came across these sachets that I had bought a while ago. The plan was for me to have them with warm cider as an alternative to gluhwein as I am not the biggest fan.
I decided I would give them a go without the apple cider--although I am sure they would be absolutely delicious with it. I tried the hot apple one first and it smelt amazing. It smelt like autumn in a cup which I think is a win win. It also tasted really good. It was really nice and warming, although I would advise to use quite a big mug because I think if you didn't have enough water it could be rather strong and make you even more thirsty.
My favourite flavours are the hot apple and the hot maple. On a rainy day, which we have had a fair few of later, they are perfect especially when curled up under a blanket with a good book or film.
So if you are looking for a tea or coffee alternative then you can find them here. I actually bought mine from Rosie & Java, a family run tea and coffee merchant in Richmond. If you are ever in the area and love tea and coffee I would really recommend popping in, the staff are so friendly and helpful. Also it is the perfect place to pick up a few stocking fillers.
This week I managed to actually do my pregnancy update video and to be honest I am rather proud of myself because at one point I really didn't think it was going to happen, due to me being really lazy but hey it looked bleached but here it is:
If you can't watch the embedded version then you find it here.
I looked back over all the videos the other day and realised I had only missed two weeks without a video, which I have to say I am pretty impressed with. Ok so it isn't a perfect record but better than I thought it would be.
I am so happy I have something to remember this pregnancy by because you never know it might be my last.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this video and have enjoyed watching this pregnancy journey.
