Did you drink coffee while pregnant?

So I know it's best policy not to have ANY coffee while pregnant. To be fair for the first 3 months just the thought of coffee or the smell of it made me cringe. Now, month 5 and 6 I'm drinking about 4 or 5 cups a week and no more than 1 cup a day. It's also fairly weak coffee cut with a lot of milk or cream. Did any of you do the same?

  • I drank espresso everyday. About 2 shots a day and continued while breast feeding. My kids are fine. Now I drink 8 shots a day.

  • I did in my second and third trimesters - but I did buy Decaf which still has some caffeine in it. I think your fine as long as you do it in moderation.
