I kinda knew I might be, but I think I was in serious denial. :/ I wouldn't say the amounts were insanely unsafe, but I was exhausted and definitely trying to make it through the day with my toddler.
I would say on the worst days, I started the day with 2-3 "cups" (which is like 6 oz) of coffee, but then in the afternoon, I'd reach for 1-2 of those bottle Starbucks mocha things, or get a double shot at Starbucks. That is like 5 "cups" a day!!! OMG!!! I did feel some cramping at times, too, so I am worried now. I shouldn't have done this...but my exhaustion and depression were definitely getting the best of me. Also, I consumed a decent amount when pregnant with my son, and he is great and in perfect health. However, I was much more careful in the beginning.
I will definitely cut back now that I know I'm pregnant. But, has anyone else done this? Did you end up miscarrying or did everything turn out okay? I have had two miscarriages, and who knows if they could have been from my caffeine habit.
Those pregnancies were not planned. With my son, I may have been in a phase of less caffeine, but maybe not, before I knew I was pregnant.
Just wanting some input and chatter about this issue. It is a rough feeling to be newly pregnant and worrying, ya know?
