  • google mcdonalds menu nutrition facts and i'm sure the caffeine content can be found somewhere, its controversial but 200-300 mgs MAX during pregnancy is "ok" but maybe. no one bite my head off its just what i've read.

  • I had white mocha frapp's with my pregnancy, and my dr. said it was fine, just as long as I didn't overdue it with the caffeine you and the baby will be fine.

  • I also like the iced coffee at mickey d's and don't want to have alot of caffiene. I asked one of the workers there if they could be made w/ decaff and they said yes. I haven't had one since I found out I was pregnant though, 'cause I'm not really sure if they are decaff or not.
