I Am Dying For A Cup Of Coffee

Anyone drink coffee in moderation while they are pregnant. My doctor says 1 or 2 cups a day will not harm baby, but looking online, there seems to be so many problems linked to caffeine and baby's birth. I will admit that when I hit 2nd trimester I rewarded myself with a cup of joe. Then I treated myself to a cup after every appointment- so once a month. But last week I had a cup almost every day. Now I am worried that I drank too much caffeine. Does anyone drink coffee? What do you think about drinking it during the third trimester- just one 12oz cup every few days???

I totally miss coffee so much! I would have a cup of decalf on Saturdays every now and then... As soon as this baby is born i am hitting starbucks!

Me too! I want my quad-tall caramel macchiato! My doctor told me though that decaf is actually worse than regular coffee. I guess the chemicals they use to decaffeinate the beans have a lot of pesticides in them. The pamphlet she gave me said to stick with regular. But I am still curious if others are drinking coffee and how much. I'm afraid ime drinking too much caffeine may give my child ADHD or something.

Honestly I've had a cup every day since the 2nd trimester. I was getting unbearable headaches from the lack of Caffeine! So my midwife said 1-2cups a day is totally fine.

My doctor also said one cup a day is fine. Most days I do have one cup in the morning. I feel guilty about it sometimes, but so far the baby seems healthy, no problems. I am 38 weeks so really at the point of no return now. I hope everything is alright with dd!!!!!

I'm bad, 37 weeks and I've been having a pepsi every day lol just one. That's it. Mostly because pop is so fattening that after I have this little one no more pop for me lol. Since I want to lose the weight and stuff. I don't drink coffee and once a month I'll have a Tim Hortons Icecap but that's about it. Other wise my baby is healthy and active.

Had coffee every day after the first tri and my dd is totally fine. She is almost 6 months old and she isnt bouncing off walls of has any problem. Moderation is fine. Have a cup and enjoy... just dont do the whole triple shot of espresso.

I was so strict on myself during my 1st trimester and most of my 2nd but I'm so tired now, I'm drinking a lot of caffiene. Probably more than what I should but honestly, my Dr told me I shouldn't worry about caffiene. I know people who drank it throughout their pregnancies and have fine, healthy kids... I know I know, probably not a good thing to base my decision on...
