Caffine When Pregnant

how damaging is caffine to an unborn baby? the only thing i drink is cups of tea (about 9 a day) and i've just read something which says the chance of miscarriage is increased. is tea really that bad for the baby or do people only say this as a precaution?

I'd like to know this as well! I drink a cup of coffee and iced tea almost daily. I'm cutting back now that I might be expecting. Is it really that harmful to the baby?

it really isn't good for the baby. doctors say the less the better. herbal teas are supposed to be fine. if you think you are pregnany, cut back. i have green tea instead of black tea now, or drink decaf coffee so i get the flavor. if i end up being pregnant, then no more green tea either!

I think 9 cups of tea is way too many. You might want to cut back to one if you can. Good Luck!

caffiene (including cola, choccy bars, coffee & tea) increases chances of miscarriage.... caffeine free tea (that tastes like the real thing) and coffee are available.

I'm on my third child and I wake up with a gla__s of sweet tea in my hands. I have to have tea at meal times. In between meals i'm trying to drink more water just so my feet and hands won't swell and I know it is good for you. Both my kids are extremely healthy. I think if i had to stop drinking it I would have withdrawals and get an awful headache. Maybe cut down alittle from 9 gla__ses a day but I'm still going to have my tea.

i'll definitely try to cut back from 9 cups, i wasn't aware they made caffine free tea, thanks mulgajill, i'll have to look out for that. it's hard because i've obviously had to quit smoking and then straight after that i found out coffee, tea and chocolate were off the menu! thank you mrs o for your reply, i feel much better now! also thanks to susan for wishing me luck. baby dust to you all x
