    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.

The Crio Bru doesn't seem to have the jittery effect on me that coffee does.
    Honestly it's never even come up. Should it have? I try to avoid caffeine due to my religious beliefs. It's never bothered me when I had it.

    Just a thought, Catrin, on the stevia, are you dipping a leaf in your coffee, because if your are not, look at the label of your package. Stevia has to be carried in something - grocery store brands like Truvia actually use sugar (erythritol) as a carrier and the "extract" of stevia they use is minimal.

    As for the second cup syndrome, I have it, too, not so bad if second cup is hours later, but really why? I drink coffee for the flavor but it's become a morning habit since I discovered REAL cream from the dairy. Prior to that I had water for breakfast. I really should go back to water... and my curiosity is peaked, someone tell me about crio bru... what is it??

    Catrin--I'm a little late to this thread, but I can say that since I've cleaned up my eating (especially giving up all lectins), my stomach tells me any time I eat something that causes inflammation. I wake up in the morning with a slight ache in my stomach area. I think that is good because I still eat one or two food items that I just haven't been able to give up completely. Work in progress.

    As for problems with the coffee, besides the quantity of coffee, I suggest you look at the coconut product you are using. Many coconut products these days have alot of additives in them and are worth avoiding. If you use coconut milk, I suggest that you use a full fat coconut milk with only guar gum in the ingredients. That way you have a clean coconut product. Thai Kitchen makes an organic full fat can of coconut milk that is fine, plus they have a low fat organic version too. There are several other makers of good coconut milk available.

    As for Stevia I would avoid it. Learn to enjoy your coffee without any sugar additive. The full fat coconut milk should taste great for you once you get used to it. Can you tell I'm a coffee lover too? I only have one big cup in the morning though.

    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.

    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
