Ok Monday through Friday I have one can of Coca Cola or Pepsi (I need caffeine to function at work) is that safe to drink it is only a 12 ounce can it sometimes it can take me up to 2 hours to drink it all.  I do not like coffee or tea.  I did not drink any caffeine on the weekends just during the week.  Come December when I am stay at home mom I will most likely not drink it anymore.  I will be 7 weeks tomorrow.

One can per day isn't going to hurt anyone. The people with the magic underwear might tell you other wise though.

I drink a soda once a week or so. And have a class of hot tea daily. It's all under the recommended amount of 200mg of caffeine.

Caffeine in moderation is perfectly fine.

 Yep--it is fine.  I drank it all the time when pregnant, and all my kids have turned out perfect.

I never cut back the caffeine in any of my pregnancies and they're fine.
