    Mariahn -- I suspect you're right...common sense seems to suggest the baby would end up absorbing the caffeine from the mother. Better safe than sorry, I'd think...

    I am pregnant and I love coffee, really LOVE, but I'm confused - is it right to drink coffee during pregnancy period? In the mornings... I love to hug my pregnancy pillow... and hold the cup of my favorite coffee...

    We should make a list, during pregnancy:

    1. No coffee;
    2. No alcohol;
    3. No tobacco;
    4. No cats;
    5. No dogs;
    6. No household chemicals (fertilizers, detergents, ...);
    7. No lifting/stretching/bending/...;
    8. (I am sure you can add some more).

    You really should talk to your doctor about that.

    But, if you really-really want to drink coffee, in spite of the risks to your unborn child, then switch to decaf. You'll still get a little bit of caffeine, along with the comfort that holding a mug of coffee provides you. And . . . you won't need to constantly wonder if you're harming the baby.

    There's too many other (more important) things to stress over when you're pregnant.

    Time for a joke... a little levity ... I'm an ol' guy... I roast... I started getting some heart arrhythmias. I went to my cardiologist. He asked how much coffee I drink a day. I said ... about 9. He said cups? I said, no Yetti tumblers. He laughed... I said "Please don't say none!" He replied with, you get one 12 oz regular and one 12 oz decaf a day. Drink more water. That will be $250. ...Priceless!

    Wow! Is that a true story?

    If so, are you actually sticking to the plan? (12 oz. regular and 12 oz. decaf?).

    It is a true story! I sure got carried away. A little more today than yesterday... rinse and repeat that a few times and you get up there. Keep going for a while and the body finally rebels. I learned my lesson. ... moderation! I won't go into the day we were perfecting roasts, cupping all day, and my partner got a new espresso machine. we were jumpin' for a while

    When I was pregnant, I caught myself multiple time craving for coffee. Did I give in? Handful times when my cravings were so strong. But my partner always shared the coffee with me. This article suggests that you can take at most 300 milligrams of coffee when you are pregnant. After I gave birth, I went back to drinking coffee but in super moderation since I am breastfeeding. Every time I overdid it, my baby would be super duper hyper and won't go to nap. Every cup of coffee I drink, I drink 2 to 3x more water.

    When I craved coffee when I expecting my first child, I found a way to solve my coffee craving problem. I ate coffee ice cream. I got the coffee taste without getting a lot of caffeine, and I had the added benefit of getting some extra calcium at the same.

    I believe that moderation to anything is okay for your health. even if you are pregnant.
    as long as you drink one or two cups a day, it shouldn't affect the baby at all.
    In health in general, what we have to be mindful is the garbages (all the processed foods and bad fast foods) that putting into our body.
    that should be a lot worse than worrying about coffee and some caffeine.
