@Sunshine09:  There are also some decaf’s that are better for you than others (ie. the process they use to decaffeinate coffee can mean the use of chemicals). I try to try swiss water processed decaf if I’m going to drink a larger quantity or more often because it’s processed naturally.

I bought swiss water grounds early when I found out thinking I would drink it every morning instead of a real coffee but I stopped wanting to drink it too after a few days. I just got used to no coffee I guess.

Mrs.RDV, I have a mug of coffee every morning. My dr. said it is fine 🙂 Without it, I’d be grouchy and laggy. Of course I drink massive amounts of water throughout the day, and have no other caffeinate aside from that.

@mrsSonthebeach:  There are reusable pods. You can get one of those, and just use regular coffee grounds. Ta-Da! Back to reasonably priced coffee!

I’m planning to switch to tea in the morning when/if the time comes.  But that has caffeine too so I will still have to be careful.

@StuporDuck:  Have you ever used one? I’ve seen them before and hadn’t thought about it in a while, but it might be time to orer one and give it a go. We have a burr grinder, so we’d have no problem using fresh ground, high quality espresso to fill them up. A brand recommendation would be cool.

Since becoming pregnant, I’ve switched to one small cup of coffee/tea per day. Black tea usually has much less caffeine than a cup of coffee, the plus side I’ve also discovered in switching to tea is that black tea has anti-nausea properties which has helped a lot with the morning sickness. I’ve found it’s actually helpful for starting the day.

for coffee purists this might be a no-go but i’ve switched to lattes…i figure the extra milk is good for me anyways. a tall starbucks latte has around 75mg according to their website.
