  • take a tylenol
    actually u can drink coffee but its supposed to be in moderation
    ive had 3 cups my whole pregnancy
    maybe im bad for doing that but my doc says its fine in moderation and not everyday of course

  • You don't have to stop drinking all together jsut because you are pregnant. Like Dom123123 said drink it in moderation.

  • you are able to have a certain amount of caffeine a day... i forget how much but a cup of coffee wont hurt you.

  • okay well maybe its okay everyday but i never drank it everyday so doing so now would be worse than just getting a tall now at my occasional starbucks trip instead of a grande to be perfectly honest....i hope thats enough moderation i dont wanna give any bad advice...

    but if u really dont wanna drink coffee at all
    Tylenol is safest for you to take

  • I am a coffee drinker. I am 21 weeks preggers and when I was in my firt trimester I stopped drinking coffee totally. I got awful headaches and I couldn't stand it. My OB said one cup of coffee a day, but no other caffine! I fina about 1/4-1/2 cup a day does me just fine. I did the same w/ my first son and he's perfectly healthy! Don't make yourself suffer. Take a tylenol or just have 1/2 a cup a day.

  • Maybe see if one cup would be enough, as the other moms have suggested, and then try cutting back even further- 3/4 cup, half cup. Good luck!

  • What did I do to stop the headaches? I started drinking coffee again. lol. Just don't drink a half gallon a day and stay away from coffee shop coffee--it's made differently and generally has a way higher caffeine content than home brewed coffee. A few shots of espresso per day is okay--it only has about 75mg per shot.

  • If you give those headaches about a week they will go away. It's easy to start getting them again once you start a little caffeine though, so be careful. If you really want to stop having caffeine good job! I agree that moderate amounts are okay, but quitting completely would be good for you and the baby too!
