Re: Caffeine

I avoid it in the first trimester, but by mid-second I will have some. I have maybe one or two caffeinated drinks a week. I've never been a huge caffeine drinker though. Short of someone having several caffeinated beverages every single day, I doubt it's overly harmful at all, and especially after the first trimester. I did read once that the placenta doesn't stop it at all, so it goes straight to the baby. It makes me feel a tad guilty, but I haven't noticed any changes in the baby's behavior when I drink it.
