I just read Diana's post about caffeine and it made me wonder something.... A lot of you said you have coffee and/or soda every day. I am wondering if caffeine can effect the baby more if you don't normally consume it. I never, ever, ever consume any caffeine....I don't drink coffee or soda and if I have chocolate it's a tiny piece of pure organic cocoa once in a great while.

Well, tonight I had a friend over and for some strange reason decided to have a cup of coffee. It's after 11 pm here and I am super fidgety and not tired at all....is it bad for the baby to never have caffeine and then suddenly dump a cup of coffee down?

I never had any with my first pregnancy either and I'm really starting to regret drinking it!

I doubt it. 1 cup of coffee isn't going to affect much. Baby might just be more active tonight is all!

I wouldn't be concerned. With my first pregnancy (and with this one) I drank many cups of caffeinated beverages a day just to function. DD was fine and hasn't shown any ill effects at all.

I didn't drink any caffeine at all until I was in the first couple of weeks of my second trimester. That was because of my spotting during the 1st trimester; I wanted to feel like I was doing all I could. But now that everything seems fine, I have on average about one or two caffeinated beverages a day. I read that as long as you drink less than 200 mg of caffeine a day, you're not really facing any risks concerning the baby or the pregnancy.

It's fine. A cup here or there won't hurt anything.

You're fine! I'd only worry about you having a bad night of sleep.

Drinking a cup after not having coffee in a while isnt going to affect the baby much mentally or developmentally. BUTTTT your baby will be VERY ACTIVE!!!

There are studies that show that children who were exposed regularly in the womb to caffeine are semi-immune to it after they come out (such as if you are breastfeeding - the caffeine won't affect them adversely).

I was also going to say that your baby may temporarily be a little more active than usual, but that's about it. One cup won't do anything except prevent you from getting your sleep.

I think that if you don't drink caffeine and you just dumped a cup in you...you will have more consequences than the little one. Like a killer headache probably when it starts to pour out of your system, or the jitters. But the babe is perfectly okay
