    Thanks for all of the comments, yeah, I had kind of figured it was something like that. I love a good dark roast coffee, so I will keep that for now and just cut down to that 1 breakfast cup. I DO like good tea, especially Oolong and will experiment with that and some of the other suggestions. Green tea I've never cared much for, though I do like White tea - it is a very subtle tea. There IS a Japanese green tea I like, but it happens to have popcorn, as well as rice if my memory is correct, in it so that rules it out.

    I've been using Stevia for a long time so I don't think that is the problem. I also only use it for coffee and a small amount at that.
    Have you ever tried rooibos tea? It has a robust enough flavor to keep this reformed coffee drinker happy with zero caffeine and zero diuretic effect.

    I agree about the cautions about any fake sweeteners that have been posted.

      Oh, I didn't know it was a religious preference for you. I just assumed it was due to the grokling on the way. I have never been pregnant but friends who have say their doctors told them to cut back to one cup max per day of anything with caffeine.

        *shrug* I maybe have a diet coke once a month if we end up at a burger joint, but that's it. The bulk of my caffeine has come from chocolate for a couple of years now. I don't drink coffee (but I like the taste of coffee ice cream), and my tea is always herbal.

That second cup seems to get to my stomach a little - never did that before. The later in the day I have that second cup, the more queasy it makes me.
          If Stevia and the Coconut Cream are both new to you, I suggest eliminating one and see if it fixes the problem, if not, eliminate the other just so you know which one is making you queasy. If it's the canned coconut, maybe you can try to find the kind that comes in cardboard pints because some cans have BPA.

          One may to make your coffee more palatable without cream, is to put finely ground egg shells with your coffee grinds before you make your coffee. This will neutralize some of your coffee's acids and will give you some added calcium & magnesium with your coffee. (It should also make the coffee less damaging to your teeth and make its taste much smoother).

            I drink around ~20 16oz cups of coffee a day. Usually add 6 tablespoons of sugar to each with skim milk
