Re: caffeine and pregnancy

My dr said that they have increased the amount you can have recently, and that 1-2 cups per day would be fine.

With my 5th I liked coffee and had a cup of coffee once I was over my horrible sickies and soda. With my last baby I couldn't stomach coffee for a few months so in order to prevent horrible withdrawal migraines I drank Redbull again. Only 80mg so it's no worse then a couple Cokes or a few iced teas or cup of coffee ya know? Plus the B6 & B12 helped my nausea and energy! :-)

Eta- none of my babies had breathing problems, even my 34wk twins and all of them have been large for gestation. My twins were 5 & 6lbs at 34wks and the other 4 were 8lb, 8lb10oz (#5 & #6) and 9lb2oz :-)
Yep, I'm prego with my 3rd and can't get off of Red Bull. I have a couple a week.

Re: caffeine and pregnancy

I've had a can of Coke a day with all my pregnancies. I'll also occasionally have a frappuccino if I'm pregnant in the summer, maybe once a week. And I eat all the chocolate I can get my hands on lol. So I don't shy away from caffeine, but I don't drink coffee which does have significantly more than coke. But my dr told me 1-2 cups of coffee a day was fine if I wanted, so I wouldn't worry.

Re: caffeine and pregnancy

I drank Dr. Pepper while I was pregnant with DS. He is healthy, and most certainly not classified as low birth weight!

Re: caffeine and pregnancy

I need caffeine to stave off migraines and the 2 pregnancies I stopped col turkey I miscarried. The two pregnancies that were full term I had caffeine and two healthy (6'11 oz) babies.

Not to knock the PP, but I wouldn't trust a study based in the UK in 2008.

Why not? They are a first world country with excellent academic standards and excellent research institutes.
I drank too much coffee while pregnant with all three and no low bithweights here but i do have a history of multiple miscarriages. I want to give up but after 15 years of 4-6 cups a day its so hard. Quitting soda was easy. Coffee I just cant do.

Kiwl Mum of three.

Not because it's from the UK, because it's from 2008
