    I had a coffee in the morning and a diet coke during the day (only ever drink 1/2 a can) both while preg and BFing.

    Never seemed to worry her or I

    My first pregnancy I went completely off all caffeine. Drank only decaf coffee, no coke, and only tiny amounts of chocolate very rarely. I still developed high blood pressure and pre eclampsia. Doc told me I'd likely get it again in subsequent pregnancies, so last time and this time I figure if I want a coffee, I'll have one and enjoy it. If pregnant women followed every recommendation to a T we'd all be pretty miserable I think. Weigh the risks, and take the ones you can handle.

    I think under 300mg is safe.
    I currently drink 1 cup of instant coffee a day, and a diet coke or expresso 3/4 times a week.

    I don't drink coffee, but like one of the posts, I have found coke helps with my morning sickness, so occasionally will have coke, no more than a 600ml a day.

    In both my pregnancies I had a strong aversion to coffee during the first trimester so basically my body was telling me not to consume it. Gradually into the second trimester the smell of coffee beans became more appealing and soon I started craving a fresh coffee (I combined decaf ground coffee with the regular type). By the time the third trimester came around I was pretty much back to my regular coffee routine which was one flat white a day or an extra coffee if I was at Ikea (my hangout during the last 2 mths I was preggo with DD2).
