Coffee anyone?

Does anyone else here drink coffee? I drink it everyday, no more than 2 cups though. I'm 5 months pregnant and have an 18 month old and a husband, so I need it. Are you tired?

  • I'm tired too. Its not recommended to have more than 300 mg of caffine though and I have never carried to term so I am paranoid and won't! I sleep a lot, lol

  • 300mg is about 2 cups of coffee

  • I dont drink any caffine. I gave it up over a year ago (it can cause infertility problems) so we were having trouble and I gave it up...but I feel you on the tired part!

  • I can't give up my coffee, but I do feel bad drinking it. So for my husband to stay off my back. I have about two cups of water before and after I have my coffee. I also have it with a really healthy healthy breakfast. Just to make myself feel less guilty lol, but there's no way I could live without it. I have a husband who leaves at 5am not to arrive home until 9pm. I have a 4 month old and a 20 month old and I'm pregnant...I'm tired just thinking about it.

  • I drink a cup or two a day. I behaved myself through my first trimester and didn't have any caffeine at all, but after that, I keep it under the 300mg.

  • Mmm... coffee. Funny how a bunch of pregnant ladies answered this one... I guess a pregnant woman asked it too. I love coffee. I suspect I might be pregnant, so I've cut myself down to one mug a day. I was just telling my husband how it is hard sometimes to resist more coffee! And if I get my period this month- I'm going right back to 2 or 3 mugs daily.
    Why would I do that? It's better to just have 1 mug anyway. It's like smokers taking up smoking again as soon as they have a baby or are done breastfeeding (and haven't had a cig for 9-18 months or so). Funny how we are kind of in love with our addictions :)

  • Coffee is just something that I can not drink. I can't get passed the after taste. I do love Starbucks hot chocolate thought.... mmmmmm!!!

  • After I had my 2nd daughter, I became a coffee addict. When I got pregnant w/ #3, I lost all taste for it! I guess that's a good thing. I do have 1 cup of tea a day, at least.
