Pregnant Mommies and Those Planning....Put Down That Can of Cola!
I was informed by my doctor, plus reading in my pregnancy books, that I would need to limit my caffeine consumption. So, I kissed my cappuccinos and herbal teas goodbye and limited my Dr. Pepper. The allotted amount of caffeine intake is limited to less than 200 mg a day. The caffeine crosses the placenta. We may be able to handle the caffeine but our baby cannot. Caffeine is not only found in coffee but in soft drinks, chocolate, some over-the counter meds, and herbal teas. Caffeine can have a negative effect on our unborn baby. And, studies have found it increases infertility.
I wonder how it helps fertility though?
