Give me the skinny on caffeine. I drink quite a bit right now and am scared to quit it cold turkey.

Hi all, it is known that shell fish, and processed foods like hotdogs probably should not be consumed while a woman is pregnant. As well, caffeine. I can tell you what my Dr. told me then my adivce to you is ask your own Dr. anyways, as he/she will know best of course. My Dr. told me not to drink more than one cup of coffee or any tea with caffine in it a day. So, what I do is have one cup in the morning, and only from time to time, not regularly. As well as shellfish and processed foods, perhaps once in a really blue moon it's okay to eat but again not regularly. Nevertheless, as I had said before if you speak to your Dr. she/he will know what's really best for you and your own situation. Good luck to everybody.

is it safe to eat peanuts?

Most cooked shellfish like shrimp is fine and there is even a page on this website where you can look up how much mercury is in all kinds of fish. I have been told to stay away from hot dogs, sausage, bacon, deli meats, due to the nitrates in them. I have not had any caffeine and there are new reports linking use of more than 100mg a day to early miscarriage. I believe that one cup a day is fine, but I wouldn't drink too much more if you can help it. Can you maybe start cutting back each day until you get to one? That might help with the headaches that may develop if you were to quit cold turkey. As for peanuts, they are fine unless you or hubby has an allergy to them and then this puts the baby at risk for the same allergy. Don't know about white clam sauce but I would love to know....

My doctor has told me that fish and sushi are o.k. during pregnancy, as long as you know they are fresh and not (made of) bottom-feeding fish (swordfish, tuna, salmon, crab, etc).

I too have read that preggos should stay away from caffeine and hotdogs/deli meats and fish that contains mercury. I've also read that you should stay away from herbal teas that have unfamiliar ingredients, throat lozenges, and unpasteurized soft cheeses like brie and camembert, the only soft cheese that is okay is cream cheese.
