  • When I was pregnant, I drank about 1 cup 8oz everyday. The doctors say to avoid caffeine but, it didn't hurt my son. Can you limit it to 1?

  • When I was preganant with my last (he is 3yrs now) my doctor said that it was ok to have coffee, if I limited it to 2 cups a day. There is a coffee on the market (maybe maxwell house brand??) that has 1/2 the caffiene and still has good coffee flavor.

  • I think you can have up to 2 cups of coffee a day or 4 cans of pop.. something like that. You'll be fine. Just limit it when you can.

  • I drank one cup of coffee a day, but no sodas during my pregnancy. My son came three weeks early, but is perfectly healthy.

  • my doc said 1 small cup, or 24 ounces caffinated soda. lots of doctors still say none at all, better to be safe than sorry.

    i would definately try to limit it though. 2 cups everyday wuld be pushing it.
