Does your baby kick more when you drink caffeine?

Mine does (I usually have just one cup in the morning like the "rules" say) but do you think if I should quit drinking that even since I can see a definite response after I have a cup?

  • My baby kicks more when I drink anything. As far as the caffeine goes I think you are really fine with just one. I was getting pretty bad headaches having cut out lots of caffeine from my diet. I'd still drink a soda or two and once in awhile I'd get a starbucks and my doctor actually told me to drink more caffeine to deal with the headaches. I don't think it's a problem in moderation. I also don't think that caffeine has to do with ADHD, I know plenty of women who drank caffeine all through their pregnancy and their children didn't have ADHD. In fact my mother drank it all through all of her pregnancies and I'm here to tell you that neither me or my sisters have ADHD/

  • I'm not allowed to have any caffeine at all during my entire pregnancy because of prior miscarriages, but I do know after I eat something really cold like ice cream, or drink orange juice baby acts like a maniac. lol Also if you skip your coffee for a day you may notice that baby is active first thing in the morning anyway even without coffee. I'm sure you are ok. :)

  • I drank a diet coke occasionally and it didn't seem to make my baby more jittery but it was very rare I had caffeine.

  • i didnt drink any caffeine while i was pregnant. i think i had a few sips of soda from my SO's soda maybe once every 4 months.
    i dont think you should drink caffeine while pregnant. i have a friend who drank coffee every morning while pregnant and her son has ADHD now.
