I'm having my second cup of for the day. The husband normally won't allow this. But he's not home, so, yeah, I'm breaking the rules. LOL

When I was pregnant with Zander, coffee was totally banned from my . I couldn't even have tea or soft drink. The first few months of my pregnancy was critical because I frequently had cramps. So my diet was strict and I had to take a leave from work.

Too much of something is bad. Even if it's a good thing, if you have too much, it becomes bad. Coffee is said to reduce calcium from the bones or something like that.

Coffee has been a part of my life. If coffee was to be banned from my diet for the rest of my life? Nooooooo!

Moderation is the key. So I'm sticking with one cup a day. Oh, wait. Mug. Not cup. emoticon :smile:

Me, I am addicted to coffee ever since I was young and I can't stop it.

I limit my coffee intake to four pots or fewer. But of all the cups of coffee of the day, the one I could least do without is the morning cup (pot).

I cheated with coffee during my pregnancy by taking decaf.

I couldn't cheat during pregnancy. Coffee is dehydrating and I had to drink lots of water.

My addiction to coffee started way back in college. I was a heavy drinker, of coffee that is. emoticon :smile:

I take my only cup (mug) of coffee for the day in the morning. It keeps me up and going throughout the day.

Aha! You are becoming like me Nanay gulp_burp :) I am trying to alternate between milk and coffee. And speaking of coffee, I am quitting the Nescafe brand for Kopiko. Will post about it why...

I love the smell of Kopiko but Tatay Kulas prefers Nescafe. By the way, we haven't opened the pack of coffee you gave us. LOL! We had to finish the previous pack first to keep yours fresh.

I drink coffee all day and night, love everything about it except for the fact that it blocks calcium...

Yep, I just learned about that recently.
