I do during THIS one because caffeine has been shown to raise blood pressure, so I avoid it because Im trying to avoid HELLP Syndrome!

However, if HELLP wasnt a factor, I wouldnt avoid it. Everything in moderation, right?

i shocked everyone. i was a 2-3 pot a day coffee drinker, until i found out i was pregnant and cut all caffeine out, including chocolate and soda. i was over 40 tho and considered high risk due to my age. i even turned down poppy seed muffins. i work with alot of nurses and they were concerned about withdrawels, but i was fine. i must not have an addictive personality.

Nope. Drinking a non fat latte while 6 mos pregnant as I type. I cut down to 1-2 cups per day (if that) after the first trimester. Doc approval.
