Decaf coffee during pregnancy
HI ladies and Doc , I read this forum religiously but seldom get the courage to post. I am 16 weeks pregnant. I had very bad morning sickness, during which I could not tolerate coffee. However, the morning sickness is over, I am craving coffee. Can I drink decaf and how often? I don't want to do anything to harm this baby so I have been palying it safe and not drinking coffee. Pls some advice ladies or Gyn Doc.

Decaf in moderation is fine.
