  • Up to 200-300mg of caffeine daily is safe while pregnant. I stick to under 100mg though.

  • I know I wasnt suppose to but I stuck to my Iced Tea every day (a few times a day) during all three of my pregnancies. My first 2 kids turned out totally fine and I am assuming this one will too

  • I drink mostly water... but do that even when not preg. I always have my small cup of coffee. When i wasnt preg i would have 3 -4 cups of coffee a day... i cut it back to a small cup or 2 a day.. rest water. or i would have a coke and rest water. I seemed to crave cokes later on.. maybe cuz i knew i shouldnt drink them... but i got th caffiene free cokes. I am 38 weeks preggo now.. and so far preg has gone good. Think everything should be in moderation. :)

  • I do drink mostly water all day with the exception of my Iced Coffee in the morning! I dont drink soda now but I did with my 1st and 2nd pregnancy ( It gives me terrible heartburn now!) my kids turned out fine, but its recommended to NOT drink too much caffeine during pregnancy.
