Coffee?

I have lately been drinking Milk Coffee, sometimes it makes my head hurt or feel weird. Is that bad for the baby?

  • To much caffaeine in general is not good for the baby! I wouldn't drink more then 1 cup of coffee a day. I decided for my pregnancy, I loved my chocolate, so I have no coffee. But, I've heard women who are pregnant and have caffeine can sometimes have headaches. the choice is yours. good luck to you!

  • Your headaches could be from hormone changes and not the caffine too. I am 32 weeks with my second child and I drink 1 (sometimes 2) cups per day of 1/2 caff. That way I can have chocolate and or a soda later in the day if I feel like it (which I always feel like chocolate!). I wouldn't worry about the small amount of caffine - just limit it to 1 cup and you should be fine.

    Good luck!
