Having a two year old this time around, I find myself extra tired and drinking caffeine like I didn't the first time. Please make me feel better and tell me i'm not the only one. How much do you feel is safe?
I probably drink a can of soda a day. Usually Dr Pepper or something, so 41 mg according to this database:
I try to keep it under 100 a day.

ariaforte8:It varies day to day. In general I always keep it under the recommended 200mg.
Me too. I pretty much always have a cup of coffee in the morning then MAYBE a diet soda at lunch but usually water.
I might have one glass of tea every other day or so. Sometimes two a day, depending if we eat out.
With my second pregnancy, I was craving cokes and had at least two a day through most of it (and also had gestational diabetes with him - coincidence?). For some reason, it never occurred to me to buy caffeine free cokes (which is odd, since I grew up drinking only that kind), but there you have it. Maybe it was pregnancy brain at work :).
I hate coffee...and gave up on my belovedv David's Tea when I got my bfp - too any herbs in the ones I have. Gave up on soda several years ago when I realized it was Making it hard to lose weight.
Sooooooo...I pretty much split a Pepsi with dh once every couple of weeks when I get a headache that Tylenol alone cant cure.
I usually have a cup of coffee a few times a week. It's kind of a "treat" when I do allow myself to have it.
However, in less than a month, I start nursing school & will be upping my caffeine intake just to survive!! >>> >>>
I'm pretty sure if I so much as look at a glass of tea I'm awake for the next two nights. With that I cut my coffee down to maybe once every two weeks and even then its decaf. I never drink pop. I started to get my sweet tooth back this last week and have slept poorly. Not sure if its the small amount of caffeine in candy thats doing it or just getting too big to sleep nicely.
Mrsveinotte:more then I should. nbsp;I can't drink much else other then Orange Gatorade so I mix sprite in with it. nbsp;
I have one cup of coffee several mornings a week, and I'm generous with the milk when fixing it up. It's a treat for me. The rest of the time I drink a cup of English Breakfast tea, or Earl Grey. Doc says it's all fine, and even the coffee is well under the 250-300 mg per day limit.
I waited until second tri to have any caffeine, though. I quit soda years ago after I realized how absolutely horrible it is for you.
