How many 6oz cups of Maxwell House Lite (1/2 caffeine) coffee do you think is okay in one day while pregnant?

I cant find the caffeine content of it anywhere. The canister says its a mix of regular and decaf.

How much do you drink a day?

If I'm having twins it means I can drink twice as much right?!?

Thank you for supporting my theory :). 2 babies = twice as tired = twice as much coffee lol. I'm a bad person to ask about caffeine when pregnant - I definitely push the limits compared to most to be honest!

Here's this - I know it's a different brand but I would assume it would be somewhat similar

Here's another (maxwell house lite is a couple above teas) - it's for 12oz so it says about the same thing. You'll be fine to have a 3rd cup later

I read up to 200 mg a day of caffine was fine. Lol sometimes I might be stretching it. But then again I'm on baby 3, and I'm much more relaxed about pregnancy rules than I was with my other babies.

I have no idea exactly how much.  I guess I never really kept track when I was pregnant.  I was once told four cups of coffee a day, but honestly, as long as I was drinking something else that day, I drank however much.  It usually never went over three cups though in one day.
