    Coffee drinkers

    I've cut out coffee since finding out I'm pregnant. I used to drink about 6 Cups a day prior. I did drink the 50/50 caffeinated blend though. I know I've read you can drink one cup of regular safely. Who drinks coffee? I didn't take up coffee until after I had my twins. So I've never dealt with this issue. I'm thinking a couple cups of the 50/50 would be like one cup. I really miss coffee!!! Lol

    I would LOVE coffee right now! With all my pregnancies its a huge food aversion so I cannot drink it!!!! But if I could I would still drink a cup or two a day of regular. I settle for a coke slurpee or sweat tea for now

    I made 2 cups of the 50/50 so it's only like 100mg. But, I just took my first sip and ahhh oh how i've missed you!!

    I had given up coffee since finding out I am pregnant but today I gave in. I am way too tired and have a headache. I am currently enjoying 50/50 cup and enjoying it very much!!

    I'm a coffee lover too - and I didn't give it up entirely with either of my pregnancies...I was soooooo tired the whole time!

    Here's an article that might ease your fears about a cup or two:

    I hope you are all having an energetic pregnant day

    I am sadly ADDICTED to coffee...however with my last pregnancy I couldn't stand the smell or taste so I actually did go off of it This time around I still like it but find it only sounds good in the morning so it helps me limit my intake. My doctor has always said he's comfortable with 1-2 cups a day, and that he wouldn't know what to do if anyone told him he had to quit his coffee!

    I drink 1 cup of half-caf in the morning. The funny thing is I tend to feel nausea when I first wake up, but after cereal, water and my half-caf - I feel great. The nausea starts again about 6-8 hours later. I sometimes wonder if there is something in the coffee that settles my stomach...I know that would be ironic, but you never know.

    If this pattern continues, I might try another half-caf around 2pm just to see.

    I have also been using this product and is apart of the business as a distributor. I have recently been discovering quite a bit of problems brewing regarding these products.

    Do you still support Organo Gold Products?
