Im 8 weeks pregnant and I work so early at 6am, I am wondering if it is okay if I drink a white mocha a day?

  • Are you getting it from Starbucks? a 16oz has 470 calories, 18 grams of fat, 59grams of sugar, 150 mg of caffeine. Thats a lot of calories and fat. A healthier version would be to def lose the whipped cream, and to ask for low fat milk. A 16 oz with non fat milk and NO whipped cream is 350 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, still a lot of sugar at 58 grams. You're dropping a lot of calories and fat though.

  • Yes, my doc says up to 200 mg of caffeine a day is fine.

  • A shot of espresso has about 65 mg of caffeine, and up to 200 a day is considered safe.

  • It should be fine. When I was pregnant, I couldn't give up my D&D but my doctor told me 12oz. a day is fine. I would buy a med. (14oz.) but waste couple sips to make myself feel good!! Lol!!

  • Yup! I was told one cup of caffeine is fine while pregnant or one candy bar a day but not to mix the two. But it seems like there is an actual amount gram wise from other posters so I would go with that. Congrats on baby!!

  • 8 ounces of caffeinated beverage a day is fine. (drinks HIGH in caffeine, like energy drinks are an exception and strongly discouraged).
