So yea I'm totally going to admit to this one! I am a total caffeine addict! When I'm pregnant I still drink coffee, tea, and sodas. Usually only one cup a day, the rest is mainly water or juice. When i'm not pregnant i can go through 3-4 cups of coffe a morning, tea in the afternoon, and soda with dinner or something like that. I severely limit myself while pregnant without cutting it out entirely, I get all shaky if I go a day without caffeine!! So good morning all I'm having my cup of coffee before my 19 month old wakes up and I have to clean up the pillow she destroyed last night while she was supposed to be sleeping!

Caffeine withdraw can be just as bad as an overload of caffeine. I still drank it when I was pregnant!!

I cannot go a day without at least one Pepsi. Coffee, tea, or other carbonated drinks don't cut it for me when I'm having a caffeine headache. With my first pregnancy, i still drank the Pepsi. My second, i had gestational diabetes, so i had to drink diet, but i still snuck that one can.
