Caffeine, anyone?

Pregnancy is hard.  LOL  And different doctors recommend different thing regarding caffeine.  Did you give it up, limit it or go for it whenever you are in need?

I've always given it up- but I'm not a coffee drinker and never had it every day anyway, so it wasn't that much of a stretch for me.  Mostly just not having tea that has caffeine in it, and avoiding the rare caffeinated soda I would have every once in a while.

I switched to decaf. I drink coffee for the taste not the caffeine, so it didn't bother me to make the switch.

My doctors tells women TWO caffeine drinks a day.  My sister had a cup of coffee and a coke.  We went to the same doctor.  I took about 75 years to get pregnant it seemed so stayed away from all caffeine even while TTC. So, I didn't have any.  :>)

I didn’t change my caffeine intake much at all. I drink about 2 cups of coffee and 1-2 sodas a day and I’m on baby #3. All healthy and happy. I would ask your doc though I don’t want to give you bad advice but if you feel like you need it and your not chugging like Red Bull’s or having coffee back to back I think you will be just fine.
Hey momoftwogreat girls!  How are you doing!  How are the kiddos?
