One little espresso every morning.
Iced tea at lunch usually.
no, i am not.
just dont get an iv of it and you will be 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...
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!
angiekay84: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.
Yes, I drink a travel mugs worth of coffee on working days!
