Is drinking 1-2 cups of coffee..

safe while pregnant? I tried weaning my self a few times prior ttc, but each time I get a terrible headache and pretty much a walking zombie until I get a cup of coffee in me. Besides coffee I do not drink any sodas or sugar drinks, or eat that much sweets at all. My diet is very healthy.

  • I drank coffee when I was pregnant. I had to or I was done for. I had to get up at 5am everyday for work and was not a happy camper until I had my morning coffee. I would have a cup and then I had cravings for mountain dew. I then had to stop at like 25 weeks when i got ges. diabetes. I still drink coffee now, maybe 2 cups a day and I am BF'ing and he shows no symptoms.

  • make sure to talk to your Dr about it. But I do drink one cup a day. I have read that anything unbder 200 mgs a day is okay- but talk to your Dr and stay away from starbucks drip coffee

  • if by "cups" you mean an actual cup, yes (as in its fine). but if you mean 1-2 20 oz's from 7-11... it probably wouldnt hurt much but its also probably not the BEST thing to drink :]

  • Mrs. Owen needs to read the popular post about people who say "it never happend to me"..... starbucks had enough caffine in a drip cup to cause misscarriage in early pregnancy. Obviously this momma is concerned and caring and wants what is best for her baby. Not what worked for you.

  • I have had different providers for all 4 pregnancies, and all of them said 1-2 cups of coffee a day is fine. I've drank coffee daily with all my kids and they are all fine.

  • 1-2 cups should be fine... if you can then try to cut back, but don't freak out over a little caffeine.
