I drink a pot of coffee a day and I'm 4 1/2 months pregnant.

Just kidding. I drink 1 cup of coffee in the morning. However, I am in school and also work (until May - then I will have time off work AND school for the summer) - anyway, on test days I will have my normal cup in the morning and then another before the test.

I worry about having caffeine, but I've tried days without it and I am a total spaz. I cannot function or perform my job duties without it (sad, but true). I want to know if any of you have ever been pregnant, consumed coffee throughout pregancy, and had healthy babies. I won't drink so much caffeine after May, but for now it's what's keeping me going : (

I drank coffee during three pregnancies. I'm also 26 weeks and had two cups today. It's the only caffeine I drink since we don't so tea or sodas. All my babies are fine. Gotta have it or I get withdrawals and my OB says it's PERFECTLY fine in moderation

I quit cigarettes while pregnant and I was never able to completely cut out coffee. I had it down to one cup and the doctor was happy with that.

I read that title and was like holy crap!
Got my attention for sure
I don't see what's wrong with a cup or two
Just be sure to drink plenty of water as well

See, I keep hearing this and I know it's fine, but then I'll hear something about a study that showed the baby gets more concentrated amounts of it or whatever and I just really feel guilty. I didn't have ANY caffeine, not even chocolate, with my first and he is like my perfect child lol. I just hope I'm not harming this one : (

I drank coffee throughout my pregnancy, just always stayed under the 200 mg limit.

That's what I do also one cup in the morning and one cup I'm the afternoon . I'm 37 weeks and never had any problems with my other two .

I drank caffeine during both pregnancies. Both boys are healthy. The biggest risk is the first trimester as it has been shown to increase te chance of miscarriage during that time.
