    Funny I stumbled on this post this morning as I drink my med DD coffee!  lol  I’m 16 wks and since I found out I was prego I cut back A LOT.  But every now and then I’ll treat myself to a coke and today I am having a coffee.  I haven’t had coffee in over 2 months so I Think it’s okay!

    I didn’t drink soda or coffee during my pregnancys, so I voted for “none” but I don’t think you’re crazy 🙂

    Before my pregnancy, I drank soda and I was also a light smoker, I quit both cold turkey and didn’t have any withdrawal symptoms or anything.

    These days, if I don’t have caffeine throughout each day, I’m a tired, grumpy, walking headache!

    I completely gave up coffee my first trimester, but had the occasional cup of weak tea or decaf coffee.  That was until my morning sickness kicked in so bad I couldn’t handle anything with caffeine and the smell of coffee made me dry heave.  Once I got out of the danger zone where miscarriage was a big concern, I started drinking about two cups of regular coffee a day.  The research I’ve reviewed (I’m actually a researcher by profession so I totally nerded out reading tons of journal articles) says that coffee is really only a threat to normal pregnancies the first trimester.  AFter that, it’s really just a problem if you have high blood pressure or something.  My blood pressure is really good so I figure I’m safe now that I”m in my third trimester.

    @macbookbee123:  my doctor told me that 200mg of caffeine is absolutely fine. so, i drank coffee! of course! but now that I have issues with high blood pressure, I have had to cut it out.
