  • Guilty! Frapps were my fav and craved them all the time. I just cut down on how often I indulged. Once or twice a week won`t hurt anything.

  • I stopped drinking coffee for a while, then read that it was ok in moderation. I never had more than 1-2 cups a day. But when I tried to have it after a few months away - it made me really jittery and sweaty and sick. I stayed away after that. Get a small one - it won't hurt anything.

  • yup with both pregnancies through out the whole pregnancies. I cut back a lot, but caffine in moderate amounts is just fine.

  • Don't worry about it most pregnant women are safe to drink 300mg of caffeine a day which is 6 12oz cokes or like 3 servings of coffee. As with anything during pregnancy moderation is key. I know some girls that the only thing that would help their morning sickness was a warm flat coke.

  • yes, it is coffee to help with my headaches or meds, I chose a little coffee with Tylenol, don't know why it helps but it does :)
