Do you still drink caffeine while pregnant?
If so how much do you think daily?
If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects?

If so how much do you think daily? Up to one cup of coffee a day. I don't always drink it though.
If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? I don't drink it on the weekends and never have any problems.

Before I was pregnant I loved my caffeine. I would drink 2 cups of coffee and a whole 2 liter of Diet coke. Yeah, a lot.

I stopped it all when I got pregnant and had horrible withdrawl for about a week. Since being in the 3rd trimester I allow myself 1 soda or cup of coffee a day. I just seem to need that pick me up right now.

If so how much do you think daily? Most days I'll have a little decaffeinated coffe, but I will have the occasional Dr. Pepper or coke.
If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? I quit cold turkey with my last pregnancy and had awful headaches, so this time I cut back while we were TTC.

Do you still drink caffeine while pregnant?No, I am cutting out all risks
If so how much do you think daily?N/A
If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects?I used to be a Diet Mt. Dew fanatic. I LOVE the stuff, but I stopped cold turkey a while back while going through IVF (caffiene was a HUGE no no during IVF). I had slight headaches for a week and that is it.

If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? I have been having bad headaches. The High Risk Ob said he thinks it is caffeine withdraw. I don't think it is though. I haven't had that much caffeine since I got pg. Although I would love a big bottle of sweet tea.

Do you still drink caffeine while pregnant? Very occasional (like 1x per month) other than hot chocolate which is pretty lite on it, I think.

If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? I gave it up right before we got pregnant because we'd decided to try again. I was useless for a whole weekend with a headache and exhaustion but it got better within a few days. This was probably the 4th time I tried and this time it wasn't hard to stick to it.

I plan on keeping it light, esp when the baby comes because I plan to nurse and I always wondered if some of my son's colic/sleeping problems were because I drank coffee while nursing.

Do you still drink caffeine while pregnant? Nope. I haven't for ages because I used to get a lot of acidity from drinking it.

If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? Nope, except I still miss that Happy high it would give me, and it's been over a year!

If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? I don't drink caffeine or soda on a regular basis anyway so no withdraw for me.

Do you still drink caffeine while pregnant? Yes.

If so how much do you think daily? Well, I go literally weeks between cups of coffee or a can of soda with caffeine. Even before pregnancy, coffee/soda was never a part of my daily ritual. I love the taste of it, but I've always been a water/juice person.

If you gave it up did you have withdraw effects? I quit all coffee and soda with caffeine cold turkey during the first trimester. I didn't even notice. lol
