Coffee while pregnant?

I am 12 weeks pregnant. I havent drank any coffee yet but I really feel like I need a cup. I have a lot of house work I need to do and a cup of coffee would really help me get started. Is one cup of coffee okay in the first trimester? Sorry, I know this is probably a stupid question.

  • I am 9 weeks and was wondering the same question. I have been told one cup is fine.

  • My OB (and in 5 kids I had 3 diff ones) all said it was fine as long as you dont overdo it you can have caffeine. The newest studied do not link adhd or any of that to caffeine. Caffeine in itself isnt good for anyone though so like anyone else limit yourself. Having a cup wont hurt.

  • My down fall is pepsi probably just as bad. but a cup now and then is not bad. One cup in 12 weeks I'd have to say is pretty darn good.
