Re: Do you drink caffiene when your pregnant?

Totally DDC crashing here :-) But.. I do drink caffeine.. With my DD, I stopped completely but had massive headaches from withdrawals.. My OB said its totally fine to still have a soda or coffee, just in moderation.. Thats all

Re: Do you drink caffiene when your pregnant?

With DS, I drank a good cup of coffee every day from the second trimester on. Those first few months, I just had no desire to drink coffee, and it looks like that will be case for this one! But let tell ya, I am GOING to be drinking an egg nog latte sometime this season!

DDC crashing too! But nobody has mentioned decaffeinated coffee! Get the taste without the caffeine!

Don't drink decaffeinated coffee they use formaldehyde to remove it from the coffee.
Granted its not much....but still it is gross & not to mention not good for you.

Yes, I drink coffee. I limit myself to the morning, generally one big mug. When I am not pregnant, I mainline coffee and caffeinated tea all day long, so it's a pretty drastic drop for me.

Re: Do you drink caffiene when your pregnant?

I'm a big coffee drinker, but I cut it out completely while I'm pregnant. Even decaffeinated coffee has been linked to miscarriage - it's something in the chemicals that make it decaff. Later in pregnancy I'll probably do occasional decaf or a dr. pepper. I eat small amount of chocolate too, but I really try and watch my caffeine.

Have you thought of switching to vitamin waters? I love them - no artificial colors or flavoring/sweeteners

The crystal light PURE has no artificial colors or sweeteners. I switched to that from propel once propel started using the junk in it and tasting like crap.

I don't drink coffee ever, but eat coffee ice cream and chocolate. Also, I drink coke. I started the pregnancy with ginger ale bc that helped and now ginger ale tastes horrid to me, so DH bought me some cherry coke yesterday but I am trying to stick to caffeine free coke (even though they don't make caffeine free cherry coke )
