Caffeine


Before I found out I was pregnant I drank an ice cappuccino everyday. But as soon as I got my positive I completely stopped drinking them. The last month I've been craving them and caved in twice. I felt terrible that I caved in but I'm really craving it again. Is it okay if I have one once in awhile?

You're fine to have caffeine just not in excess. I think it's upto 200mg which is about 2 cups of coffee per day.
I've not stopped with caffeine aside from the awful first tri food aversions. I can live without lots of things but not my coffee.

No reason to beat yourself up, caffeine is fine in moderation. 2 small or 1 large coffee are fine.

Should be fine I have caffeine here and there. I was told a small cup of coffee everyday was fine. I don't drink coffee so much but love tea.

I drink coffee everyday, probably too much and definitely more than 1 large per day. I can't get through a full time job and two under 4 without it 🙈🙈🙈🙈

I had 1-2 cups of coffee a day at most points of all of my pregnancies. I'd sometimes abstain for a few weeks at a time, but who am I kidding? I need my coffee. You're safe to drink a cup or two per day.

I have a cup of coffee every day. A few days a week, I have two or a tea in the afternoon (did the same with my daughter too). Yes, it's absolutely fine. There is no evidence that caffeine in moderation causes any harm. It's really only when you get to the level of drinking 3, 4, 6 cups a day that there is much evidence of adverse effects (even then the effects are pretty minor, usually lower than average birth weights, but nothing especially serious). A single cappuccino with one shot of espresso has about 30-60mg of caffeine on average and the recommendation is to stay under 200mg, so you could probably have 2 or 3 on a regular basis and still be under the limits. Even then it's just an average, you could still have 4 one day and go back to just having 1 the rest of the week and it still averages out well under 200mg. So yes, enjoy it. I couldn't survive pregnancy without coffee!
