A lot of busy women swear by their coffee, but caffeine can actually be dangerous for pregnant women. Caffeine has been linked to miscarriages, with studies showing that early pregnancy loss rose by 74% with the consumption of three or more caffeinated beverages a day. To avoid these statistics, try to avoid caffeine as much as possible during your first trimester. After the first trimester, use the general rule of less than 200 mg of caffeine per day, while keeping in mind that common foods and beverages like soda and chocolate also contain caffeine.
