So I'm now on my 3rd pregnancy. I have a 4 yr old, a 1 yr old and I'm about 4 months pregnant with my 3rd. With my first 2 pregnancies I completely stopped drinking coffee because I didn't want to expose my baby to caffeine. I also stopped drinking soda almost completely. With this pregnancy, I have to admit that I'm just soooooo drained. My energy level just isn't what it used to be and I strongly believe it's because I've had my pregnancies so close together. My kids are all going to be about 2 years apart. I feel like this baby is sucking whatever nutrients I had left in my body from the previous pregnancies. I tried to stop drinking coffee this pregnancy, but with all the responsibilities I have with my 2 kids it's so hard to get the energy to do what I have to do. I've been drinking 1 cup of coffee with breakfast almost every morning... I feel so guilty about this. Why can't I just do without? I just want to know if anyone else has had about the same amount of coffee during their pregnancy and if everything turned out ok? I just want to add that I eat healthy, I take my vitamin every day and I used to exercise everyday, but stopped when the morning sickness got really bad this pregnancy. I need to get back into it now that my morning sickness is subsiding and hopefully I start getting some energy back. Thanks in advance for any responses.
