It makes me angry

I still drank a half of a cup a day because I would easily get awful headaches during pregnancy. I could never drink more than a cup a day but that was rare. With my first pregnancy I cut it out completely. When I was pregnant with my second I was getting horrible headaches so I stuck with drinking some coffee. I never drank a lot and honestly what I did drink didn't seem to really affect them. Plus the first trimester just the smell of coffee made me feel sick lol.

I don't judge. For all I know it could be hot chocolate. Now if I knew the person and they were drinking nothing but soda or coffee all day it might bother me. Other than that I think a little is fine

I don't take meds, alcohol, drugs, nicotine or any of that, but I do have caffiene.

I don't judge over the one cup of coffee that some women drink, but diet sodas make my skin crawl.

Considering the studies that have shown how large an amount you would have to have to harm a baby, I don't even pay attention. But I feel very differently when i see a pregnant woman smoking. For one thing, I don't know anyone who only smokes one cigg a day. For another, I know she's doing harm too her own body as well as her baby's, and because of that she will have a much harder time with labor and delivery.

I think its fine in smaller doses.  Like if they are sitting there with a 2 liter of Mt Dew I might think its wrong. . .

I had 1/2 cup coffee a day while pregnant. Small amounts do not harm a baby
