Before I fell pregnant with my first baby I was a caffeine addict; coffees and red bulls all day (often in place of food!)
When I fell pregnant I went cold turkey, it was easily the worst habit I've kicked (I am a former- well before babe was conceived- cig smoker and weed addict!)! I mostly did this because of the guilt of caffeine and decided I just needed to stop all together.
This time around I really don't want to quit! I don't drink red bulls or caffeinated sodas but I do drink coffee, around one a day, sometimes less.
I know I am easily drinking under the max reccommended level, but I still feel semi guilty. But I have a 14 month and I want my coffee dammit!!!
Anyone else feel the same the second time around?!

Lol I've never thought about the "fell pregnant" thing to be honest. Just something I hear and have adopted?!
How do you phrase it just out of curiosity ?

It's funny, cos I KNOW what I am consuming is ok, but I still feel guilty.
It's like my brain is arguing...
"you quit last time, you did so well!"
"I didn't have a toddler last time"
"stop using it as an excuse, you should try"
"I WANT COFFEE DAMMIT"
