It's best to avoid caffeine whenever possible during pregnancy. At the very least, don't overindulge. Study results on the subject have been mixed. But overall, studies show that a moderate intake of caffeine — 200 milligrams (mg) or less a day, which is the amount found in about one to two cups of coffee — has no negative effects on pregnant women and their babies. However, high amounts of caffeine — 500 mg or more a day, for example, five or more cups of coffee — may cause a decrease in your baby's birth weight and head circumference. Coffee, tea and carbonated beverages all can contain caffeine. To reduce your intake of caffeine, consider switching to decaffeinated versions of the beverages you like.
