Stupid question...

Is coffee ok to drink while TTC?

I LOVE coffee and I just don't wanna hinder my chances of getting knocked up if drinking coffee is the equivalent of pouring acid on my eggs...? anyone know?

Its safe to drink one caffeinated drink a day into pregnancy as well.

I think the standard is to keep caffeine under 300mg/day.

If you're having a hard time ttc, caffeine is one thing you might consider giving up to see if it helps.

No such thing as a dumb question!

My RE recommends cutting out the coffee. I wasn't thrilled about it since I loved my morning cup of coffee but I have quit!

AHHH!!! That's disappointing, maybe I will start to wean myself off it then.. do like half-caff, i really don't think its the caffeine that i like anyway, i just love the flavor and my comforting morning ritual

I know for pregnancy it's one drink a day anything more than that can increase chance of miscarriages. I THINK I read somewhere (I could be wrong) that a lot of caffine can lower sperm count- but I COULD be wrong.

MUST tell hubby this... he drinks like a pot every morning, and not just a normal pot, but the coffee  is so strong it could walk away!
