caffeine and pregnancy

Hi everyone. I was just wondering about the use of caffeine during pregnancy. My midwives told me, when I was pregnant with my daughter, that it was ok to drink up to two cups of coffee a day. I have slowed down a lot with this pregnancy, but I find I am a lot more functional when I have a cup or two, or tea. Does anyone know about caffeine and miscarriage? I've heard that it is linked in some cases, but I'm wondering if they are talking about large amounts. I guess I'm trying to make excuses for myself because I don't want to give it up. I didn't have any coffee for about a week, but then I had some yesterday and today. I'm wondering how bad is it? Thanks!

Re: caffeine and pregnancy

I didnt drink coffee with my pregnancies but I am an ice tea drinker about 4 to 5 a day(24 ounce glass). I told my doctor this and he said he was fine with that.
As long as your midwives/doctor is ok with your drinking some then keep it to the recommended amount and you should be fine.

Re: caffeine and pregnancy

When I was pergnant I would limit myself to three caffeined drinks a day. Coffee, tea or pop mostly. My baby girl is now six months old and she is very healthy. Before pregnancy I was a heavy coffee drinker and I can't drink more than three cup in a day now if I tried so It was a good thing for me.
