Caffeine during pregnancy

I see all of these things they say not to do in pregnancy and at this point it feels like I can’t eat drink or do so many thinks I enjoy and I’m not sure if it’s okay to do them in moderation or not. I’ve heard having a cup of coffee is okay and the caffeine isn’t so high, I’m wondering if energy drinks are okay in moderation from anybody who actually has drank them in pregnancy. I’m not talking crazy caffeine filled ones, I read no more than 200 mg of caffeine a day and redbull has 80-110 and I’m not the biggest fan of coffee. I’m not saying daily but I also read no energy drinks when pregnant because of the caffeine but am reading I can have some caffeine. Can somebody please let me know I’m going on barely any sleep the past couple of days and I feel as if I need one right now but don’t know what to do. I’ve outgrown liking coffee awhile ago the only caffeinated drinks I really like are Red Bull and sometimes celcius.

I stayed drinking 1 cup of coffee a day with my first, and occasionally a second cup if we were out and about and stopped at a coffee shop, and I've had no issues with it. But I also don't drink any other drinks with caffiene

I’m still having the odd energy drink a week. Plus I literally live on fizzy pop and that’s caffeine 🤷‍♀️

Please ask ur doctor before drinking energy drinks

I have a 6-8 oz coffee everyday. My doctor said 12-16 oz a day is fine

I *planned* to have coffee in moderation, I used to have it maybe 3x/ week but for some reason I had some cuban coffee (tends to be stronger) at like 6weeks and I just got this terrible pain! My heart was racing and I thought if my heart feels like this, imagine that tiny little heart 😆 so I cut caffeine out completely. Instead, I ate more fruits, oatmeal, and put lemon in the water I drank to wake me up 🤍

I do still have an occasional energy drink. When I’m not pregnant I drink them everyday but I still let myself indulge sometimes. I did with my first pregnancy as well and it was never an issue

@Olivia okay! I will try that thank you

@Victoria noted thank you

I would try Matcha or tea for an extra boost. Natural juices (fresh pressed) also really help with some natural energy

I’m still drinking caffeine but only maybe 4 times a week instead of 7 and only 100mg or less a day. I’m so stunned at the things they say you can’t have but can… I drink caffeine but I don’t take OTC meds

They say no energy drinks with taurine.
