So my dad is making coffee and it smells soooo good! I know it's not good to drink while pregnant, but what about during the TWW? I'm 5dpo today.

Yay, I got featured post. :)

some caffeine during pregnancy is not going to hurt baby...and baby doesn't get anything from mama until around 4-6 weeks so you will be fine to drink some

I have a cup EVERYDAY. I used to have about 3, but moderate caffeine consumption is fine. Especially during the tww.

Lol I can be like that sometimes, but I don't drink it often. Maybe once or twice a week I'll have a cup.

It depends on what you read and how a clinic feels about it. Some say no caffeine and others say a cup a day is ok. With my last IVF I drank about a cup a week just to see if it made a difference and course it didnt lol I think a cup of coffee is fine

 Up to 200mg of caffeine a day is perfectly fine when pregnant so also just fine when TTC. Drip coffee (made at home) has a LOT less caffeine than coffee from Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, so you can have a couple cups and be fine. If you have milk in your coffee, all the better! Babies like that calcium... Mmmm :) Enjoy!

I drink 2-3 cups of a morning I like my coffee with hazelnut and sugar in it hugs
Some books say no not during pregnancy and some say it's ok as long as you don't drink too much caffeine hugs

 I forgot to add that while I don't drink coffee, I've been enjoying my chai lattes and an occasional diet soda with no thoughts about it. I actually feel more guilty about the artificial sweeteners and possible BPA from the plastic containers lol
