COFFEE during 2 week wait??!!

Postby new_ivf » Wed Apr 20, 2016 2:10 am

So my RE Doctor said having 1 coffee (caffeinated up to 200mg) per day is OK, not to worry, but of course I do!! Can anyone here chime in on your thoughts and experiences?

Will 1 coffee per day (morning) have any ill effects on implantation or increase chance of miscarriage?? Coffee relieves my dull headache and helps with constipation so it's harder than I thought to completely quit! :hugs:

I usually drink 2 liters of water and then have breakfast, Prenatals, etc before having any not on empty stomach.

I'm a coffee addict as well, these days drinking 4 cups a day! When I was in my 2ww, I drank decaf though. If you really need it, maybe drink half a cup a day. It's best to avoid it, but I know how those headaches are.
