  • didnt drink a single DROP of caffiene w/ the first bc i was scared--she is super hyper now.. haha! w/ my second i drank very little.. not even one cup a day.. but with this one.. i swear i cant make it through the day w/o some mountain dew! i looked up the grams you can have though and make sure i stay under it.. i try not to worry about since my doctor doesnt seem concerned.

  • I stayed away from it, except when I had morning sickness. Coke and crackers are the only thing that makes my tummy feel better!

  • In moderation, it's OK. IMO>

  • I think everything in moderation. I back off caffeine while pregnant, but still use a boost of it when I get a headache. I think that is reasonable.

  • I drank 2 cups of coffee a day while pregnant with my last one, none with the 2 before him.....I was taught that one or 2 cups a day are fine....I stayed away from soda, though.

  • With my first child I had no caffine at all. With my second, I still drank caffinated pop, but stayed away from coffee because I can be sure how strong I made it. My first child is high strung, my second child is chill... I say drink caffine! :)

  • I was happy drinking one cup of coffee in the morning (no different than now) but it caused me major heart burn so I stopped. I didn't want to risk tea. Pop isn't something I have a lot of so caffeine was out.

    I would limit my intake to one cup a day next time round.

  • I think its fine in moderation. When I was pregnant with my DD I was addicted to Mountain Dew. Like, I had to have at least one everday. Well...everyone says my child is very active because I drank too much caffeine lol. I don't think so though...I think it's just in her genes. Shes a good kid.
