The studies on caffeine and miscarriage are mixed. I think the range is anything below about 200 mg per day is fine. So that would be a normal cup of coffee, not one of those strong cups from Starbucks. Maybe 1-2 cups of tea a day?

My DH is totally addicted to caffeine, to the point where he'll get a headache if he misses his morning coffee. i don't want that for myself, so i always try to limit my coffee intake, and i don't drink sodas. I do, however, have chocolate pretty much every day, so there's caffeine in that to consider. Smile The first trimester is such a killer with the exhaustion... it's really hard. i found that a little caffeine helped with the awful headaches i would get, but otherwise i tried to limit it. that's just me, though. i'm holding my son right now and wishing i had taken better care of myself during my pregnancy with him (i DID take good care of myself and i don't know that eating 10 fruits and veggies a day would have made him even healthier, but i just want my kids to have the very best of myself, if that makes sense). but there's a lot to consider - you also have another young child, so do what you have to to survive. hugs!!

I am a 3 cup a day girl, but during pregnancy and nursing I limited myself to one weak cup a day.

I never gave up caffeine with either pregnancy, but I did get turned off of coffee from 3 months preg until about 3 weeks PP, but not tea or soda, infact I gained an addiction for Coke (the soda lol) I guess it had to make up for me not wanting coffee, I think you're safe with a cup or two a day, just don't go over board.

EEEEEKKKK you're preggers, I'm soo sooo excited for you

My OB said 180mg of caffeine a day was ok, that's pretty much equivalent to 2 8 oz cups of coffee. I so can't live without caffeine either, even drank it while BFing. As long as I don't overindulge, Abs tolerates it well.
