    Not seen anything that says you can't. I did read in my pregnancy book last night that they recommend you drink it during early labour to build your energy up!

    Oh -didn't realise it had caffine in it, I'd check that out before you have too much. I can't drink the stuff, it gives me a head ache....

    I would say you could but not loads as it has an awful lot of sugar in it and caffeine so dont want to raise your blood sugar by too much.

    ok so literally only drink it if i am really tired.
    I basicalyl work a 12 hour shift and within that I get 4 15 mins break, a 20 a 30 and a 10 so i normally go sleep in the 30 and 20 anyway even before i was pregnant lol.
    Just nervous.

    I practically lived on Lucozade when pg with my daughter.
    It was the only way I could get to work in the morning!!

    Lucozade is a glucose energy drink, not a caffine one like Red Bull.

    Lucosade (the fizzy ones) contain a lot of caffiene...unless you choose the flat non fizzy one then that has no caffeine just glucose..thats what ive been drinking (but beware it makes your pee bright yellow) :rofl:

    A normal size bottle contains the same amount of caffine as a can of diet coke, so I would only have 1 or 2 or day.

    I know someone who was having 3-4 cans of Red Bull a day every day!
    Her midwife wasn't happy about it, but that was a few years ago and her bubs is fine.
