this may sound like a stupid question...but now im curious...

so everyone knows you arent suppose to have a lot (if any) caffine while you're pregnant. however, when a pregnant woman is craving a big piece of chocolate cake or a king size snickers, nobody seems to think twice. but it just dawned on me, doesnt chocolate have caffine?? so, my question is...is chocolate okay, or not okay??

  • Caffeine is fine in moderate amounts. I am thinking something like 300mg a day is acceptable during pregnancy. Yes, chocolate does have caffeine, but again, in moderation, it is ok.

  • milk chocolate has less caffiene. the darker the chocolate the more caffiene it has so stick to milk chocolate and you'll be fine

  • chocolate has very little caffine! now oppose to mountain dew that is a whole different category! I would just try to stay away from a lot of sugar or high dosages of caffine. chocolate never hurt any women and it wont hurt your baby unless you eat it all day!

  • hun im 36 weeks pregnant i have 2 chocolate cakes right next to me and i been picking at it for 2 days now and yesterday i have 2 Latte's with a shot of expresso...

    but the only reason why its alright for me to be doing this is because all my doctors told me to drink and eat what i want now =]

  • i asked my dr if it was ok to keep drinking coffee cuz im a coffee aholic and she said the big concern was that alot of women try to compensate the super tired feeling they have by trying to drink a ton of coffee and it stuns the body. so as long as youre not overdoing it then caffeen is suposedly fine. suposedly. lol.
