Hello, my partner and I are about to try for number 2. I have been tracking my cycles all year and will be due to ovulate next week sometime. I am sat with coffee in hand...as I loooove it but gave it up when pregnant with my ds as I know its not the best thing.....now all this new research ahs come out saying you are 26% more likely to conceive if you have no caffine......so shall i give up my one love now??will it have enough time to get out of my system?

Hi
I just read an article this morning that it's ok to have up to 300mg caffeine per day (which is 1 cup of brewed coffee). I am a total coffee addict too, and these days it's my only real vice since I gave up smoking 3 years ago and don't have alcohol very often. I kind of feel the need to be addicted to something grin.

On the other hand, I think it's probably a really good idea to stop drinking it if it's possible. We're trying to conceive DC1 and every day I wonder if my morning cup (huge one!) is making it more difficult....hmm.

We should start a CA thread (Caffeineaholics Annonymous) grin

I had to open this because I've just sat down to treat myself to some MN time with a big mug of milky coffee...to try and combat the extreme tiredness I am feeling in week 7 of pregnancy! I didn't cut it out and the ttc worked for us but of course every one is different.

no idea what a doctor would say but as a fellow coffee addict lover I think there is a lot to be said for not making yourself miserable with coffee-withdrawal headaches while TTC, right? grin

If you start having difficulty TTC then I guess it would be wise to cut out anything which would affect it.

FWIW I live in a country where people live off coffee, it courses through their veins, and there are plenty of pregnant women and healthy babies. Highly scentific information there for you hmmgrin

oh yes ladies I will join lol! when I got pregnant with ds1 i still drank coffee....I suupppoooose a latte is milky coffee and milk is good for the baby!!!!wink

My partner loves her coffee too, she is a total javaholic, and i always put ds for a nap in the morning have a coffee and read MN!

I also fell pregnant on our first (insem) attempt with ds so don't think I have fertility problems...maybe its too to early to totally rule out coffee....will just stick to a v milky morning coffee grin
