  • Okay...well...I read 8oz a more, so that is what I do at most. I only have caffeine 3x a week or so...but I was also a new addict, within the past year. I mostly crave soda LOL
    Honestly, once you are past that first Trimester, it's not AS big a deal...but I would go easy. I find when I get dressed and moving, the momentum helps me tremendously.

    Good luck!

  • you can have a few cups in a day, just not all in a row. if you had one cup in the morning, one cup in the afternoon will be fine. My Dr. told me i could have up to 4 cups of coffee in a day as long as it was not one right after the other. You have to space it out.

  • I missed my coffe during my pregnancies, but i was too sick to my stomach to drink it. I used to be able to take naps with my first pregnancy, but when i was pregnant with my other 3 boys i could not sleep as much because i had other children to care for and it is not very easy sometimes to put 3 boys down for a nap when pregnant with baby number 4. I feel like i have not had a good sleep since 2004 lol. I dont see anything wrong with drinking a few cups of coffe a day.

  • Yeah....I have tried to limit it, but too hard. I still drink too much caffeine.
