Too much of a good thing...?

During pregnancy, I become super-sensitive to caffeine. A full cup of regular coffee makes me jittery and scatter-brained and feeling kinda ill all day. No fun. Especially since I am a coffee lover. Not 'cause I need it. 'Cause I love it.

Know what else I love? Dark chocolate.
Apparently, in my current state, dark chocolate contains too much caffeine also! NOOOooooo!
I ate about 1/3 of this bar (which, by the way, is AWESOME!) the other afternoon, and then hardly got a wink of sleep all night.


A couple days later, I ate some more...and didn't sleep again.

I finished it off the next day...and didn't sleep.

I think I finally put two and two together...

So here we have two options:

a.) Eat chocolate -> Don't sleep

b.) Don't eat chocolate -> Do sleep

Unfortunately, I must choose option B.

Alas. Alack.

Sweet chocolate...fare thee well! We'll have a reunion in about 3 months.

I know the feeling. That is how my body always reacts to caffeine which really stinks.
Guess your body is just telling you the baby doesn't really need it either? Just a thought. Here's hoping you can make do with out.
