whos guilty?

So iam 29wks pregnant and i cant get through my morning with one cup of coffee. now thats all i have it just one cup i did cut back but i still need my coffee in the morning.
Anyone else guilty of drinking coffee while pregnant?
Also after you drink your coffee does your baby go crazy in your belly?
Its funny cause after iv had my coffee he must get a caffine high or something because he goes crazy in there for a hour or so just moving and kicking.

  • Not coffee.. dr pepper. Seriously. I had such awful morning sickness and the thing that calmed my tummy was sipping dr. pepper in the am. It doesn't effect my baby like you say yours does, BUT if I have a bite of chocolate, that gets her going. Especially dark chocolate, hell even strawberries get her going!

  • I drank coffee all the time with both of mine, yes they was a little hyper in the tummy but, it did'nt hurt them any. They are now 28 and 33

  • Oh, I'm guilty of a lot of "you shouldn't do this while pregnant" habits. On a really rough day I've been known to drink 2 or more sodas. I drank caffeine with both of my previous kids and they turned out just fine. I also eat seafood, steaks not completely well done and take hot baths and showers. I'm fine. My kids are fine and I get to avoid being the cranky pregnant woman by indulging on occasion.

  • I had 3 different providers while I was pregnant and all of them said it was ok to drink a couple cups a day. Don't feel guilty about it. I did notice it woke the baby up every time.

  • I would have if juvenile diabetes didn't run in my hubby's family. Caffeine increases that risk. My dad is an ob gyn and he said it is fine in moderation. He also said having a glass of wine a week is ok. I had maybe a half a glass a couple of times in my 3rd trimester, but I trust he would not tell me anything that would hurt his grandson!

  • I have 2 or 3 pops a day. I can't go w/out it. I drank it w/ my son as well and he turned out fine. I think its ok. My baby has been very active from the time I could feel her move. So its hard to say if its the caffeine or not!

  • I drink coffee every day... It's OK to have a cup or two. I can't give it up. I'd rather cut off my right arm than go a morning without coffee LOL. Don't feel guilty.

  • I'm drinking my morning coffee right now :) I limit myself to just one (grande size from starbucks) but I have one everyday.
