    So I just found this article on AOL news and it freaked me out.
    https://www.parentdish.com/2011/05/.../?icid=maing-grid7|main5|dl14|sec3_lnk1|67112

    I always new that caffeine was not good for you etc.. but I think this is what caused my suspected ectopic back in March. I would drink like a sugar free red bull a day!!!! NO MORE CAFFEINE FOR ME!!!!!

    If I ovulate next month around like the 24th, and I stop drinking caffeine now... do you think it could still affect me?? :dohh::cry::sad2:

    I've BEEN drinking caffeine THIS cycle.... Def. have cut it down, but still. NO MORE. I would think if you stopped drinking it now you should be okay friend. Thank you for sharing this.

    It has been linked to higher rates of miscarriage. With both of my mc's I was having the occasional caffeine. But, I have finally kicked the habit for good now and plan to stay completely off it. I think if you quit now you will not be affected by it next month. I wanted to quit ahead of time so I'm not tempted to have it even during the 2ww. I do miss it though :coffee:

    I never drink Coffee, I hate it. I avoid Energy Drinks these days cause they make me feel sick, however I am a bit of a Coke girl :) Once I found out we had conceived our darling little Angel, I stopped touching anything caffene.

    Many studies have linked caffeine to M/C. so I stopped drinking it too.

    I always have and always will drink caffeine, I cut back a while ago before my m/c I thought it was causing bloating, so had nothing to do with my m/c, when pregnant with my dd I continued drinking round 4 or 5 cups a day no problem, but I guess everyone is different, maybe if your a higher caffeine drinker for quite a few your body is more used to it?

    tinkerbelle, i drank several cups of coffee a day when i was pregnant with my son too because i didn't know i was pregnant for a long time! he was fine. that is why i didn't take it that seriously at first. with my first mc, i was drinking one small cup per day. with my 2nd mc, i stopped coffee, but i was drinking 1-2 chai tea lattes per week.

    i doubt the occasional tea latte was enough to do anything, but since I've had so many mc's i just want to be extra careful next time.

    jparr, i felt totally drained and exhausted for 2 weeks when i stopped drinking my coffee :cry: just to make you guys feel less guilty, when i lived in The Netherlands (the LOVE their coffee!), i had a few pregnant friends and one was told no more than 5 cups of coffee per day, the other was told 3 cups per day :haha: the dutch kids all seem to turn out fine :shrug:
