Am i the only pregnant woman with coffee cravings? I don't feel like it's the ideal thing, but have been having a decaff late or cappuccino most days as well as my usual several cups of decaff tea. Should I be trying to eliminate this??? I know when not pg, coffee makes period pains worse, so it can't be that wonderful during pregnancy either! Advice please!
Yes. It makes my morning sickness worse, and I get a headache, but I really want coffee. I just try to stick to the two cups of normal coffee but I could happily drink more. I don't normally drink it, just tea. Am worried about the caffiene though, so drink about 2 litre plus of water alongside (not that that will reduce the caffiene).
I'm drinking more coffee than normal. I'm drinking instant decaf which is the lowest form of coffee in my opinion but I almost feel that I'm craving it. I think it's that i've cut down on caffine and I think the coffee might be waking me up?? I don't think there's anything too evil in coffee..
I love coffee even more than I normally do when pregnant too - I sometimes have a cup of instant at work during the week which is always a disappointment but every saturday and sunday morning I have a mug of freshly made coffee with milk and one sugar as a treat - it's just so amazing!
