  • Caffeine, like most other things is fine in moderation. I'm sorry you had to go so long without coffee. I was happy when I could have my first alcoholic drink. I was never really much of a drinker in the first place, but just knowing I couldn't do it made me crazy.

  • Who told you Tylenol wasn't safe? It's like one of the only things that are safe during pregnancy.

  • I was never much of coffee drinker. (I had Starbucks ONCE when I was 8 months pregnant. Got it at the airport right before boarding a plane, and was MISERABLE because there I was, cramped up in a little seat while baby went BONKERS.)

    But I remember being so PSYCHED to finally lay on my stomach again. It was one of the first things I did, even though it felt all mushy and weird. Ahh....stomach sleeping. Thanks for reminding me how wonderful it really is. I've been taking it for granted again. :)

  • Nope.

    I stopped caffeine for the last time when I was pregnant with #2. That was in 2001.

    Oh, I've had the occasional coffee pumped full of cream & sugar (during long road trips or overnight stays at the hospital), but I've never gone back to the daily habit I had when I worked outside the home.

    Even teas & sodas ---- I do decaf. I can taste the caffeine in those things now... and it tastes nasty.
