Okay ladies, I'm not a coffee drinker so I have no idea about this.

Before getting pregnant how much strong coffee or espresso would you drink.

I'm trying to compare to my MIL because I think she drinks way to much. I would have to say she drinks about 7-10 glasses a day and thats turkish coffee, which is a lot stronger then espresso.

Before getting pregnant i used to drink 3-4 med. cups of coffee + 1-2 java monsters just to keep me going through the day. I would wake up at 5:30am and would get back to bed till bout 2am. My days never slowed down while I worked. I was always trying to take care of things and keep my house clean with 4 other adults living there with no help from them.

2-3 cups of weak coffee was my average, unless I made the coffee then 2-3 cups of regular strength coffee. 7-10 Turkish coffees a day is a lot of caffeine.

i was not a "strong coffee" drinker as im not a fan of the bitter taste so if i had something dark it was only 2-3 cups. however I did make gallon pitchers of iced coffee and would drink a pitcher every day or 2.

I'm usually just a cup in the morning, and sometimes a cup of decaf on chilly evenings. I don't do the strong stuff at all.

Sometimes at work I'll go for a large convenient store cappuccino, but that's really just glorified hot chocolate. Some of it only has trace amounts of actual coffee in it.

My parents drink a ton, too, esp. my mom. They make it strong and go through 2 pots just between the two of them every morning, and that's just the morning. Then she has more throughout the day. I only drink 1-2 cups a day, normally.. and not every day either. I'm not a huge coffee drinker.

I was a 2-3 cups of regular per day drinker. With lots of creamer. Now I'm doing 1-2 cups of hot tea instead because coffee hurts my stomach.

I can understand if you were working, but the woman has been a house wife all her life. DH left the nest when he was 18 so its not like she was keeping up after watching a child, only her husband who worked six days a week from 7am-7pm. oo There she goes again, another cup with her cigarette, a must for her too, its like she can't do one without the other.

I used to have one or two cups a day, but that's more when I was in the office and I always smelt the fresh pot brewing, so it made me want one.

Caffeine is definetly addicting. She probably is hooked on it.

During the school year, I would take a 20 ounce insulated cup with me to work and sip on it until noon. During summer, I would average maybe about two of those throughout the day. However, that is just a regular Colombian roast. I cannot imagine drinking that much in Turkish coffee.

Now that I am pregnant, I drink one small cup of half-caff every morning, and I don't have anything with caffeine after noon. Sleep studies have shown caffeine even 8-10 hours before your bedtime can cause restless sleep. I'm getting enough of that without adding caffeine to it.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but 7-10 cups of Turkish coffee seems like an awful lot!! Even if she's using the little espresso mugs to drink out of, that's a lot! But I'm doubting she's using little mugs....

I only drink 1 cup a day and that's when I'm not pregnant. I haven't even been drinking that lately unless it's decaf.

My mom drinks a lot of coffee. She's a heavy smoker too, so maybe it goes hand in hand. Although I don't think even my mom drinks 7-10 cups a day. That's really a lot.
