Ok first pregnancy and never thought to ask the dr, but I am wondering WHY they tell you to stay away from caffiene?

Well, I think its basically that caffeine is a stimulant, therefore a drug. It makes your already fast beating heart beat faster, increases blood pressure etc. My Dr. told me to limit to 1-2 cups of coffee a day.....

It is a drug and a stimulant. It is not good for you much less your developing baby. It causes increase in heart rate and can lead to dependance.

Don't mean to be rude, but thanks"duh" for your comment, you must not be a caffine drinker anyhow, but some of us are!
