Hi everyone, I am 14 weeks pregnant and don't know if it is okay to drink coffee every once in while. I know some say NO caffiene AT ALL, and others say that 300 milligrams of caffiene a day is safe after the first trimester.

honestly, I wouldn't be able to live without a bit of coffee in my system once in helps me regulate. lol (sorry, tmi) I wouldn't have TOO much, but I haven't heard of any specific problems when you have a cup or so every couple of days.

iam almost 30 weeks preg.I have drank coffee since day one and things are ok..Since i drank alot before i got preg my doc said to just cut back to 1-2 cups a day.

My doctor also said 1-2 cups a day would be fine of coke or coffee. I'm sure it's not the best thing for you to have but sometimes it just seems necessary!! I'm sure millions of people have way more than that on a regular basis when pregnant.

I have a baby boy who just turned 1...I couldn't have asked for a healthier, more perfect baby...I drank at least an average of 1-2 cups every weekday, and diet coke as well. I didn't ONLY consume those drinks, I think if someone ONLY drank sodas or coffee, then they'd have to worry. =) Congrats!

Thanks ladies! I feel better now.... I think at the most i have had 1 cup of coffee every other day or so for the past week. I started feeling guilty and was worried i was hurting my little one! I feel better to know that it is okay in moderation and others feel the same way! :)

I was told one cup of coffee in the morning and one caffinated drink during the afternoon. So a total of two cups per day. That sounded reasonable to me!!
