Caffeine!

When I was pregnant I completely cut out caffeine, switched my Darjeeling for caffeine free Irish Breakfast (delicious, by the way!) ​and my red canister of Folgers for green.

Since the m/c though, I have definitely re-upped my intake. I know it's not the healthiest thing in the world, but I have read studies that indicate a cup of caffeinated coffee a day is just as effective at treating depression in women as I think it was Prozac.

Not sure if that's a slam on Prozac or a one-up for coffee though, lol!

My husband is totally in love with things like Monster and Red Bull, even though they seem to give him no energy. He will drink a Monster and fall asleep.

I'm a little more sensitive though, at least after having stopped.

I was wondering though... How many of you ladies rely on caffeine? How much do you use/drink a day? Ever tried to cut back?

    I love coffee :). I drink probly 2 cups in the morning 1-2 cups in the afternoon. Then the rest of the day I drink sweet tea.

      I actually try to avoid coffee for fear of being one of those people that depends on it to get through their day. Not sure how that will work after baby gets here, lol! Husband drinks it occasionally. I'm thinking of getting a Keurig in February for my birthday. I really am more of a cappuchino person if I want something warm to drink. I don't drink much soda anyway. Green tea was my weakness. The hardest drink to give up in my pregnancy. Just love the taste!
