  1. I believe the maximum amount thought to be safe is 300 mg of caffeine a day. That’s about a cup of coffee(depending on the kind of coffee you like). High levels of caffeine is associated with the risk of miscarriage. At 38 weeks, you’re well past any danger.
    And this is not medical advice. I speak from a folk perspective: plenty of women have consumed coffee throughout their pregnancy without any ill effects.

  2. I think this is a question for the doctor of the patient to answer. Too much individual variation between patients.
    For the generally healthy pregnant mom, a cup here or there should be fine.

  3. A small amount of coffee (one cup at mid-morning) is OK if you usually have it. Something to consider: A friend who drank coffee during pregnancy and nursing had issues with colic with her first two children, then tried coffee-free with the third one and had zero colic issues.

  4. According to online sources, a moderate amount, meaning less than 200 mg per day is perfectly fine. Of course it depends on the woman. If your blood pressure is high, your doctor might recommend you to avoid coffee altogether. In my experience, I have met moms who were advised to drink at least two cups a day due to low blood pressure. Being 38 weeks pregnant myself, my doctor told me I can drink up to 2 cups a day without it being an issue. I don’t drink that much coffee, but I occasionally have a capuccino. My blood pressure is perfect and both my baby and I are ok. So ask your doctor. He knows what’s best for you because each case is different.

  5. I think that if they say it’s not good to drink coffee while being pregnant then you should not. However, while being pregnant I used to have some sprite which also have caffeine when I had an upset stomach.
    If you drink coffee once or twice during your pregnancy I don’t think it’s a health issue.
    P.s I’m not a doctor and this is only my opinion. You should talk to your doctor about your concerns.

  6. Is it that you want to know whether to stop having coffee or you want to know if it’s safe to begin drinking coffee?
    You need to ask your doctor. There is no way of knowing whether you have any conditions that might require dietary restrictions.
