Wait till your later months.
Caffeine isn't good for early stages since the babies heart rate is so fast you can misscarry.
Sometimes i crave it and i love the smell so much I'll poor 1/4 glass, fix it the way i like, then add water and ice.
I've had a few cups since 21 weeks. I'm 23 weeks now and my baby is always okay.
She doesn't get jittery like she used to with soda at 19weeks.
Yes it's okay to drink. My doctor said 2 cups a day is safe. A lot of woman have told me that they don't change how much coffee or soda they have when pregnant and didn't have any issues. I usually have 1 cup of coffee a day and every now and then I'll have a soda, I've had some pretty strong cravings for Pepsi! To answer your question... Go ahead and have a cup or two :)
you can have one or two cups a day.
I'm 22 weeks by the way and Thanks for the advice I really appreciate it :-) . And also does it have to be decaf ?
My ob told me to swap to tea because its a little less caffeine per cup and just have one a day. But when I did the preadmission interview at the hospital they gave me a hard time about drinking my one cup of tea a day. I think it really depends on who you talk to. I would just be conscious of how much caffeinated drinks you have a day and try to limit it to one or two.
Thanks so much I'll keep that in mind :-)
No it doesn't have to be decaf I have a cup a day and my baby is fine and my mom basically lived off of coffee with all 3 of her pregnancies and we're all just fine.
Thank you for answering my question :-) I really appreciate it I've been so bummed that I couldn't drink coffee because I love the smell but all these comments really helped ! :-) thanks again ! :-)
My ob said the same, 1-2 cups is okay.
It also depends on where you are getting the coffee from. Drs advise no more than 200mg of caffeine a day. A cup of coffee has roughly 120mg of caffeine. And that is instant coffee you make yourself at home. So something like a large mocha or latter from Starbucks would have a lot more. It would still be safe, but just have it once in a while as a treat :)
I don't drink tea or coffee, but I do love soda. And a can of soda has about 80mg of caffeine.
I've mostly been drinking decaffeinated soda, but still have Pepsi or cola sometimes as a treat.
Actually espresso has less caffeine than regular coffee. At least at Starbucks a grande latte or mocha is the same as a cup of coffee. Just as long as your not adding extra shots.
Ive been having 1 small cup of coffee a few days a week. I dont drink any soda though. . Only once in a while. And baby girl is doing just fine.
oh ok :) thank you all for taking the time to comment I really appreciate it ! :D thanks for the advice and info ! :)
