I know that the standard advice is that if you're pregnant, it's okay to have a small amount of coffee, but I think that advice might be geared towards all women, including young women and women who just found themselves pregnant without really putting effort into TTC. I've also read that you can improve your fertility by giving up on it entirely.
I've had a long term habit of about 2-4 cups of coffee a day, and I've brought it down to one small cup of regular, and a cup or two of decaf. I'm planning to bring it down to decaf only, but I'm trying to go slow-- I get caffeine withdrawal migraines if I go cold turkey.
I've also quit drinking alcohol entirely (though I'll have a couple glasses of wine whenever AF shows up). I know a lot of women will drink till it's pink, and not stop until a positive pregnancy test. I just want to boost my chances, improve my egg production.
How do you feel about coffee? It just feels way, way harder to give it up than to give up alcohol!
Me- 39 (turning 40 in April), TTC for the first time ever (since Jan 2015), low ovarian reserve
Married 3/14/14 to my wonderful wife, but her sperm count is rather low
