Coffee


Hi, very strange question but Iím currently 6 weeks and two days pregnant. I had a miscarriage in June of this year at 8 weeks and well because of that Iím a little nervous to be pregnant again. Anyway I always have a coffee in the morning and iv recently read that caffeine is bad in early pregnancy was wondering if one coffee would do any harm I know this sounds stupid but Iím seriously worried about it, I could give it up obviously but I work long hours and honestly I feel like I need it any thoughts or options, itís only one in the morning but if itís seriously going to harm my baby then it needs to I suppose

All I can find online is that under 200 mg a day of caffeine for women are okay. I drank coffee sometimes in my pregnancies and my kids were fine and healthy. I just kept it to a cup or half a cup is all. Good luck and congrats on the pregnancy!

Sorry about the previous loss

I gave it up for my first two, this is my third and there’s no way. So far baby is healthy as ever. Trust your instincts, especially in the early days. If it feels wrong to you maybe cut back for a couple weeks while the bean really snuggles in.

Trust your instincts!

Xx

Yeah I think you are right I doubt very much that a cup of coffee will do any harm, but on the other hand I do feel guilty about it so maybe I will cut it back x

My doctor is very strict and has told me to go off all caffeine. Honestly, I just couldn't do it. I switched to tea, and have one cup a day with no problems. It even helps keep my headaches at bay. I think a cup of coffee a day won't harm you.

I think a cup of coffee a day should be okay. I use a Keurig and the cups I drink have at least 100 mg in them.

I am a coffee addict. I drank it with both kids and it seems to have had no ill effects. Except now the little monsters are also coffee addicts and steal off with mine at the first golden opportunity.

I am sure you are fine with your cup a day hun. And congratulations on the pregnancy.

If it puts your mind at ease, you can actually look up caffeine content by brand. I know how many mg of caffeine are in our coffee and espresso at home, and in a few favorite DD & Starbucks drinks, so I can enjoy guilt-free. Just keep it under 200mg a day (remember there is caffeine in chocolate, too!) and you'll be fine.
