  • I wasn't the poster who said, "yes" but I agree. If you think you are pregnant, don't drink an energy drink. Most of them contain extremely high levels of sugar and caffeine, both of which you are supposed to limit while pregnant.

  • So i was pretty convinced no to drink it. I drank about 4 oz. (1/4 can) If i was pregnant do you think it could have caused any probs??? And please only answer if you are planning on answering my question directly.. If you think it is stupid just simply stop reaing and go to the next question.

  • yes, theres waay to much caffeine in it, as well as other suff..caffeine is no good when pregnant, thats why your supposed to stop or limit the amount of coffee, pop, etc..

  • There's a lot of sugar in them. I drank them when I was pregnant with my son. He turned out ok.

    And sometimes you don't feel like doing the research and that's why it's sooooooooo convenient to come and ask! I've done that billions of times!
    And sometimes the voice of experience helps too.
