1st Trimester

Are you guys drinking coffee?

You guys, I'm dying of exhaustion. Ok maybe i'm being dramatic, but I'm not sleeping very well - just I think with the anxiety of not telling everyone yet and the newness. What do you guys think - are you having coffee?

Re: Are you guys drinking coffee?

  • One little espresso every morning.

    Iced tea at lunch usually.

  • I drink an iced half decaf latte everyday and that seems to take the edge off of the exhaustion.

  • I was terrified when I saw someone say "no coffee" but after a bit more research I found that most consider 8-12 oz is harmless. Thankfully I've only been a one-cup-a-day girl for the most part so I can just stick with that!

  • I stop when I'm pregnant, but ... studies show a coffee or two is harmless, go for it, or go half caf if you want to reduce it a little.

  • I stop while I'm pregnant.  I was a mocha-a-day girl before.  Letting the mocha's go has been easy, because of MS the thought of one makes me want to vomit, and I'm saving a ton of $$.  I am having a hard time without the caffeine though, especially since I work night shift.  7pm-7:30am 3 nights a week.  It's getting easier the farther along I get (12wks now), but in the beginning it was rough!  Especially since I have a toddler now.  My first pregnancy I just napped all the time, no can do this time around.

  • I am drinking 1 cup a day.. and have plenty of friends who did the same. I actually googled the topic of crystal light and pregnancy in 1st trimester bc i am so thirsty and it pulled up a link to the livestrong.com site. it said you can still get lots of water by drinking crystal light but non of their tea's bc they have caffeine. And then I also read same - that up to 12 oz of reg coffee a day is ok. Anyone else so thirsty??

  •   I am always thirsty too. I am constantly drinking water. As far as Coffee, I have one every few days. The doctor told me a coffee a day is fine.

  • I have a cup of coffee every morning.  Yesterday I bought half caff instead of "full strength", just so I won't feel sbad about it.  I think I've had one diet dr. pepper since I found out.  Not cutting back completely, just a big reduction.

  • I can no longer stand the smell or taste of coffee.  If I'm really tired at work I'll grab a tea for a little caffeine bump.
  • no, i am not.

     

    just dont get an iv of it and you will be fine.

  • I still enjoy 1 large coffee from Tim Horton's a day

  • I switched to decaf.  I was never a big coffee addict but did enjoy my 1-2 cups a day.  Decaf is doing the trick for now.

  • I love my coffee, but as soon as I found out I was pregnant I quit aall caffeine...they say a little is ok (not sure the exact amount) but that amount includes ALL caffeine in coffee, tea, chocolate, etc, so keep that in mind...from what I researched, they have also linked too much caffeine to miscarriages, so I am not taking chances...I may be going overboard, but I am a first time mommy, so I can do that! Big Smile It is really up to how you feel about it. I may have one cup every now and then after my first trimester, but as for now, NO COFFFEE for me! It's not worth taking any risks in my opinion...I will deal with being tired....usually drinking some ginger tea (no caffeine) helps me to sleep at night!

  • I just finished nursing school and had a 3 cup/day habit to going cold turkey once I found out that I was pregnant.  Slowly dying for the coffee, so I'm going to buy some decaf tomorrow and have at least 1 cup because I can't take it anymore.

  • One cup in the morning, and sometimes an iced tea later in the day. I don't drink soda, so I get less than the allotted 200 mg per day. My OB said this was fine.

  • Quit coffee right after I found out... not cause it's bad... cause it makes me hurl... Lol.

    I have pepsi instead now in the mornings and one in the afternoon... caffeine is fine in moderation...

  • I was drinking green tea until the morning sickness hit.  Now if I had any type of caffeine my stomach would churn for hours.  So no.  Not because I don't want caffeine while pregnant, just no because it makes me sick.

  • With my first pregnancy I stopped right away and never drank coffee until after birth.  Then with my second pregnancy I didn't stop I had a bad habit of two+ coffees a day at that time and reduced my intake to one a day.

    Now, I just woke up one day and it didn't want coffee, but on the days when I'm feeling better from the m/s if I'm running errands I will spoil myself with a starbucks.  I don't drink decaf, just regular, and I only have a couple a week tops!

  • I was making a triple shot latte every morning.  Now I am doing about a 1/2 shot or 1 shot latte instead, depending on how tired I am in the morning.

  • I usually drink half caff and I continued at the beginning of my pregnancy until the m/s hit. I've had a cup or two since but I'll probably start drinking it again now that I'm feeling better.

  • I actually stopped coffee and Coke Zero once I found out I was pregnant. I will wait through the first trimester (this is my first, so I'm probably being extra careful), but once I get to the second tri.....bring on the Coke Zero! I'll probably have one a day or every other day. I actually love diet coke MORE than regular.  At work, we had a ton of diet cokes left over after a meeting and they were just PILED in the refrigerator.  When I opened the door to get my lunch one day and saw them.....I literally stood for a good 15 seconds just starring at them!!

     I am the same way!  I LOVE diet coke, but could care less about real coke.  I have cut out caffiene altogether for the first tri, but my doctor said it was fine in moderation.  He said a cup of coffee in the morning and 1 diet coke a day are fine (but I'm a first timer and overly cautious for sure!)  I did slip a small sip of my sis in law's dc last night :)

  • I'm not a coffee drinker, but I drink my one cup (57mg) of caffeinated tea each morning. About once or twice a week, I have iced tea or a soda. If I make iced tea at home, I make decaf anyway because it keeps me up at night if I drink caffeinated iced tea with dinner.

    Up to 200 mg/day is acceptable, but as a previous poster said, this also includes the caffeine in chocolates and other foods.

  • I was at first and only stopped because the thought of it now makes me want to barf. When the nausea goes away I will drink it again. A cup a day if fine. With my son I drank it when I wanted.

  • I stopped drinking coffee. However, I still have some caffiene here and there in other forms. But as stated above, studies show 1-2 cups a day is fine. I try to limit all forms of caffiene including chocolate.

  • No I haven't had any coffee since I got my BFP 2 weeks ago. I miss it so much! Yesterday I did get a decaf at Starbucks which actually was not that bad.

  • Hello- Tomorrow I will be 40 weeks pregnant and I have consumed one 8 to 12 oz cup of coffee almost every day for my entire pregnancy.  I've seen Dr.'s in Japan, Hong Kong and the US and they have all said that caffeine in moderation is totally fine.    I have had a healthy and happy pregnancy and my baby boy is doing perfect.  I've been weening myself off caffeine the past couple weeks because I plan on breast feeding and I've read that if you drink coffee while breastfeeding it could effect the baby's sleep.   If you are having a healthy, normal pregnancy a little coffee every day is perfectly fine.  Smile
  • I drink 2 cups a day and did with my last two pregnancies too. I read somewhere that 1-2 cups a day is totally fine.
