Caffeine Addiction (Coffee, Tea, Cola's)

Can drinking coffee be bad during pregnancy

Caffeine (found in coffee, tea, colas, etc.) enters the foetal circulation. Research shows that drinking one and a half to two cups of coffee a day can double the risk of miscarriage. Studies have also shown that excessive caffeine use could result in temporary abnormal heartbeat, rapid breathing and tremors in the newborn and the development of diabetes later in life. There are several other reasons to cut down on your caffeine intake, if you are pregnant. Caffeine has a diuretic effect, drawing calcium and fluid, essential for the foetus' health, from the body. Drinking coffee and tea has a tendency to spoil your appetite for more nutritious food. Caffeine can affect your normal sleep pattern and aggravate mood swings. Caffeine may also interfere with the absorption of iron.
