  • I would have been pissed!!!!!! First of all they have no business saying anything to you unless they are pregnant or have recently been pregnant, because then they would know what you can and cannot due. I think you were very nice to them. I would have ripped them a new a$$. I commend you, I couldn't be as nice as you to those ?!$itches!!!

  • Well first, one caffeine drink is not gonna give you a low birth wieght baby and you already know that. I think you were right in saying what you did. You didnt ask their opinion about drinking caffeine and they needed to not have an opinion about it. I think what you did was fine. I would have been the same way and probably worse.

  • I would have said fine if I can't drink it then you have it and poured it down her shirt but I'm a bitch so yeah. But you weren't in the wrong at all they are just bitches.

  • I'm on your side. They were being rude, not you. They have NO RIGHT to tell you what you should or shouldn't be drinking. Next time you can show them what rudeness is.

  • NO YOU WERE NOT RUDE!!! I have a caffeine addiction and I admit I have been drinking more than I should every appt we go to shows my daughter healthy and growing strong, my son was the same way. My doctor told me the only warning he has with soda drinking is it may cause colic and that was the only advisary he gave to me

  • Some caffeine is NOT going to harm your baby and it's not their business anyway. Fact: Experts have stated that moderate levels of caffeine have not been found to have a negative effect on pregnancy. The definition of moderate varies anywhere from 150 mg - 300 mg a day. I got this off of a website and other websites say it too.
    You weren't rude at all. They shouldn't have been in your business...I hope when they get pregnant they get bashed for something stupid and i'm SURE they will drink some caffeine.

  • I would have said "Listen sweetie, I understand you have no life of your own, but that doesn't mean you get to jump into mine. Have a lovely day, now, won't you?" and left it at that...when she's off ranting about caffeine and babies she'll just look like a nut.

  • She;s lucky it wasn't me cause I would have been all up in her face to mind her own f*cking business. It is not her place to judge others PERIOD; and she is obviously doing it to annoy you. Tell her to fuck off, and make sure she feels fear; she'll shut the F up then....
