I have been drinking it through pregnancy, but I'm craving it lately. I have been wanting iced tea and pepsi at any point that I'm thirsty.

I feel like I'm maybe overdoing it, I had a 12 oz bottle of pepsi this morning at work and 2 glasses of Turkey hill iced tea (my FAVE) with dinner.


Anyone else on a caffeine kick?

I am trying really hard to avoid it. I only drink water and milk at home. And when I go out, I've been getting Sprite (which I don't really like) instead of Pepsi or iced tea.

My dr says up to 200mg of caffeine a day is fine. That is 4 diet cokes (my drink of choice), I usually have one with my meals and the rest of the day I drink either caffeine free or vitamin water or chrystal light. I'd say I probably have 2-3 dc a day.

I have had an iced tea here and there, but take that for a grain of salt because I don't really drink caffeine while not pregnant. Whenever my OB asked about caffeine and I mention that I have tea or iced tea they always blow it off. Most people font think that tea has enough caffeine to care about.

I have a cup and a half of coffee in the mornings. I drink herbal tea (pregnancy blend) everyday but it has no caffeine. That satisfies my tea urges.

I guess Turkey Hill brand has more caffeine than most iced teas. I'm addicted to it though.

Pepsi is pretty low on caffeine though.

Here's a website where you can find a lot of drinks and their caffeine content.

I do not. But I didn't before pregnancy either. I doubt my cardiologist would okay it for me, anyway.

I am a Dr. Pepper lover. I try to limit myself to only drink it at dinner. It's hard though!

Don't do a ton, but didn't before pregnancy either. If we have a soda, DH and I will usually split a can at dinner (or lunch) and drink water with it. I drink tea whenever but not too often. But, now I'm wanting to go make some.

I've been craving apple juice lately.

I haven't changed my drinking habits since before pregnancy. I don't drink a ton of caffeine but I have no problem having a Pepsi or mountain dew when I want!

I don't drink soda but I have to have my big cup of coffee in the mornings and occasionally in the afternoons as well.

I don't really drink soda and tea at all. I do dink coffee and before pregnancy, a habit I picked up in grad school, I drank about 6 - 8 cups of coffee per day. I now only have coffee in the morning and sometimes a 1/2 cup in the mid-day.

I do also eat chocolate (more than I should) and I know that has a good amount of caffeine too...

Oh me too with chocolate. I love dark chocolate, and I treat myself to a kind with 70% cacao in it every time I go grocery shopping lately, lol.

I think docs usually limits softdrinks (esp coke/pepsi) because of the high sugar content as it can promote yeast infection during pregnancy.
Coffee though, yeah, it depends on the blend of your coffee if you're worried of the caffeine content.
Thankfully, I don't have caffeine craving during pregnancy (it makes me sick actually when I used to need it before in the mornings) but I do secretly drink pepsi when there's no one else around (is ashamed )

I have cut back on Dr. Pepper now since I am not feeling sick anymore (it really helped with the nausea during the first trimester), but I still drink 1-3 cups of tea a day.

I don't drink a lot. I typically drink one cup of coffee in the morning at work. I had to give it up because my heart burn was bad. My headaches sucks so my OB suggested adding caffeine back in. So I'll have about 6 oz each morning (it's not helping the headaches, I just like coffee). I have a diet coke here and there (my fav). We went camping this weekend and I had 4 of those small cans of diet coke one day. I also like sweet tea, but the sugar makes me sick. I do like diet flavored green teas. I'm on a mango green tea kick right now.

So to answer your question, yes I still drink caffeine lol
