It seems they finally have enough proof to say that caffeine IS bad for pregnant woman. What I gathered from this article, avoid caffeine (coffee, soda) all together during the first trimester and as much as possible (one cup of coffee, five cans of soda, a day) during the rest of your pregnancy. Five cans of soda is a lot, I wonder what kind of coffee they mean? And what about caffeinated tea?

If you want to learn more read this article from BabyCenter News & Reuters:
