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