I know your not supposed to have caffine and I usually dont but latley the past few mornigs I've one cup of coffee. Now I've read that it's not bad and I've read that it's not good. What do you think?

Hi Karen, I asked my doctor about this at my first prenatal visit, and she said that it's fine to have one cup of coffee each day. I have one cup in the morning and then drink water or juice for the rest of the day.

Yup, coffee is fine. Starbucks is treat for me! lol

Thanks for you unputs:)

I usually get a decaf from starbucks whenever I have the craving. It's better than getting the regular/the lattes(which I used to LOVE before my pregnancy).

A tall latte had sooo much less caffine than reg coffee or even a soda.

They say that it is okay to have coffee as long as you are having less than 300mg of caffeine a day. I think that is roughly 3 cups of coffee. Remember too that caffeine is a stimulant, and it is probably best to indulge only once in a while, or you might end up with a child who is hard to handle!

My dr. Told me up to 2 cups a day is ok (also with soda)


Brandi - January 30

300 mg. of caffeine is okay, average cup of coffee has about 150 mg. can of soda has 35-50 mg.

Im the same,have one coffee in the morning and thats it, but could have more easily. I thought it was strange I didnt go off it , but now I know Im not alone!

I have a cup of coffee almost every morning at home but usually I only drink half. It makes my stomach make weird noises all day ! lol

My doctor told me 2 caffinated drinks per day. One cup of coffe and a soda later in the day but no more.

I rarely drank any during my first trimester then decided I truly needed a cup in the morning to function. My doctors say 3 cups or less per day is fine so I don't feel the least bit guilty about this.

I would honestly go crazy if I couldn't have a cup of coffee in the morning.
