Is Anyone Drinking Coffee

I'm shocked at the misconceptions I am reading on this site-- 300 mg of caffeine a day is considered safe. That translates to about 3 cups of coffee per day. Starbucks regular coffee does have a lot of caffeine, but if you choose a specialty drink it has far less - for instance a tall latte has about 70 mg of caffeine versus 130 found in regular coffee. Instant has more caffeine than regular coffee, not less. And Starbucks coffee is not any stronger than any other brand, it is the amount of sugar added to their beverages that makes a lot of people jittery. Green or black teas have just as much caffeine, sometimes more, than regular coffee. Also, if you are going to drink coffee in moderation (1-2 cups a day), stick with regular coffee instead of decaffeinated, because the chemicals added to decaf coffee to extract the caffeine can interfere with the iron absorption of your prenatal vitamins. Moderation is the key!

I drink about two cups of coffee a day (sometimes less, sometimes more). My doctor told me that too much coffee can slow fetal growth. My last baby weighed over ten pounds. So I don't think the caffeine's causing any ill effects - at least for me.

Yes im drinking a coffee right now. Just before i got pregnant i cut out coffee because i had heard that cutting out caffine can help you lose weight but since ive been pregnant ive been really craving it. I only have 1 maybe 2 coffees a day and my dr says thats fine, but no more than 3 instant coffees per day
