  • My Dr. said 2 cups a day was just fine...but remember that soda and chocolate, etc. also have caffeine, so factor that in also. Enjoy! I couldn't live without my coffee! Oh, and I had 2 healthy babies =)

  • I would wait till about 3 months to have that cup of coffee. That way if anything comes up you know you won't blame it on that cup of coffee. You know how they say you can have certain cheese's and no deli meats... I waited a while and I LOVE SUBss I just went crazyyy craving them and gave in and I was fine..wanted that Ham and cheese sub soo bad.. Anyways one caffeine drink won't hurt. just be careful.

  • I had one cup of coffee every day for my entire pregnancy and nobody suffered any ill effects. While a ton of caffeine is not good, one cup usually doesn't hurt anything.

  • A cup a day should be fine. Moderation. The thing to avoid right now is artificial sweeteners. My high risk OB says they are not good for baby.

  • A cup won't hurt anything. Don't go for a pot a day. Or drink decaf. Limit yourself.

  • You're fine, but you might want to switch to decaf.

  • I never heard that one cup of coffee was bad. Think of all of these people running around who's mother's did not even expect they were pregnant until 5 weeks! ( and all of the coffee they drank) i drank coffee and my 13 yr old is well adjusted, healthy and an A B student in accelerated classes. I like to think it might be the coffee that did it ! Bless your heart for being so conscientious of your child. You will be a great mom.
