  • caffeine and pregnancy have pointed to all manner of problems, such as stillbirths, heart defects and other congenital problems. Some studies have also shown a higher rate of miscarriage and low birth weight babies. Baby will also go threw withdrawl after birth. http://coffeetea.about.com/od/health/a/pregnancy.htm

  • No but the survival of your fetus should not be your only concern. Caffiene can increase your risk of miscarriage in early pregnancy. However, Caffeine is also an addictive substance and a harsh stimlulant. It's not healthy for you as a full-grown adult so how healthy would it possibly be for a tiny unborn human that's trying to rapidly grow and develop?
