  • youre allowed to have up to 300mg of caffeine so just make sure you arent going beyond that with all of your caffeine intake. i drink normal coffee sometimes too.

  • Caffeine is ok as long as you're not getting TOO much. A cup of coffee or two is ok. If it's just the taste you want, get decaf or half/half coffee (half the caffeine).

  • I drank caffeine through out my pregnancy. My doc said no more than two cups a day won't hurt. Also, if you actually read the studies on caffeine while preggo it says that the studies were conducted with EXTREME amounts of caffeine like more than two pots a day to one person! Just keep it within reason and you should be fine.
