  • Yep its fine. I used to avoid caffeine and with my 4th my ob told me there wasnt a reason to. That there are no links between caffeine use and any developmental issues like adhd or anything else. In fact those are all genetic not caused by caffeine. He also said obviously you shouldnt drink 20 cups a day or sodas a day bc thats bad for anyone pregnant or not. Caffeine in moderation is fine and should be looked at the same as when not pregnant. Dont go overboard it isnt good for you either way but sure enjoy that coffee in the morning.

  • Well, my Dr. Said no more than 4 cups a day. I don't think i could have survived pregnancy without my daily cup of joe. It did wonders for my tired butt.

  • 4 cups?!?! That seems like a lot. I was always told no more than a cup a day. The same goes for soda or tea as well.

  • Well, i only drank 1 cup a day. But yup, that's what my Dr. Said, & my sisters Dr. too. And it is also listed on one of the popular baby books. I forget the name, but it's a classic.

  • No, you can have up to two cups a day. I'm drinking half/caff. (half regular, half decaf) coffee right now.
