The entire caffeine and pregnancy concern was based on a very poor study involving some mouse ovaries in liquid nitrogen which slowed down a bit when you put caffeine on them. No further research done. The second study just involved asking women how much coffee they drank, and then how long it took them to get pregnant, without taking any details as to whether they were trying for a baby at all! http://junkscience.com/2011/05/26/ca...ys-conception/
So, first thing's first, there's currently no evidence caffeine even has an effect. That's not to say it doesn't, but to date no study has confirmed it.
IF IT DID, however, one or two black teas would be fine because the caffeine is lower than in coffee. Even one or two coffees is fine.
I think I'll stick to 2 cups a day just to be safe. I don't really like the defac tea but I don't mind the decaf coffee so I'll drink more of that. Ever tried Redbush Tea? I like the Redbush with vanilla and it is caffeine free so will have more of that.
Hi girls, this has got me interested! Does anyone know how much caffeine coca-cola has??? i bought de-caf coke but its diet therefore contains sweeteners, which i have heard is bad for bubs!! ???
Aspartame is... yeah, a bit crappy. Again the studies can be a bit wonky and don't show anything that can't be explained by other factors, but it's not something that has any benefit really. It's something I avoid whether pregnant or not. There's nothing wrong with plain ol' sugar
