Caffeine?

Anyone still consuming caffeine?

I know it is ok in moderation. Last time with Nicholas I didn't drink caffeine for the whole first tri. This time around I am still having my daily diet soda at lunch and that is all. Depending on how it makes me feel I may give it up but right now I am enjoying it.

I still drink it and my dr approves. She would rather me have a dr pepper ( or two) a day and avoid having a headache then for me to give it up and be miserable.

i gave up coffee for Lent.... but come Easter i will be drinking it again!!!! I think the recommendation is less then 200mcg of caffiene a day. I'm not sure where i heard that from... i typically drink 8-10oz a day and my midwife was fine with that.

I continue to have 1-2 cups of coffee a day, but I won't have more than that.

I have been allowing myself one can of pop a day. I haven't been drinking the whole thing, but in the morning when I'm feeling super sick it's one of the only things that sounds good and seems to calm my stomach. Maybe that's all in my head. Lol

I am a pop-aholic!! I need my Pepsi. LOL That being said now that I am pregnant I will cut back just like I did with my daughter. But I can't quit or I will get headaches.

i still drink diet soda to start my day. I have backed off a little though. But god help me if i drink "diet" in front of my SIL :roll: Shes about to take her RN license test in a couple weeks and "loves" to give free advice.

Luckily for me right now i dont get to see her but 3 times a year or so.

Don't ya just love the free advice? LOL Actually I can tell you that nurses rarely follow their own advice and are just as unhealthy as anyone else. I know because I am one (I'm an LPN) and I see it everyday!

I am still drinking a cup of coffee in the morning. My doctor, who just had a baby herself, told me not to make the same mistake she did. She cut out all caffeine during her pregnancy and now she is breastfeeding and if she has so much as a piece of chocolate, the caffeine will make her baby wired. I was happy to not have to give up my morning coffee.

I'm an iced tea junkie, so I still have that throughout the day, and I'll have a diet soda maybe once or twice a week, but I have definitely cut back from my usual 4-5 diet cokes a day lol...

I could totally drink 4-5 cans of Pepsi a day. I don't even have the pleasure of saying it's diet!! UGH But I limit myself to one can now and am making myself drink more water.
