Yes, but hold the refills. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends limiting your caffeine consumption to fewer than 200 milligrams (mg) per day. That's about what you'd get from drinking one 10-ounce cup of Starbucks coffee.

Going over that amount could be risky. Some studies have linked drinking more than 200 mg of caffeine a day with an increased risk of miscarriage and low birth weight. And drinking large amounts of caffeine (eight cups of coffee or more a day) has been linked with stillbirth. More research needs to be done to confirm these links, but it's a good idea to err on the side of caution when you're pregnant.

Be aware that the amount of caffeine in your cup of coffee will vary depending on the type of coffee and how it's brewed. The coffee at a restaurant or coffee shop, for example, can range from about 100 mg for a small (8-ounce) cup to over 400 mg for a large (16-ounce) cup, depending on the brand and the brew.

And remember, decaffeinated doesn't mean caffeine-free. A 16-ounce cup of brewed decaffeinated coffee typically contains about 12 to 25 mg of caffeine.

If you need a caffeine boost but are concerned about your intake, you might choose a latte (about 75 mg of caffeine). From the milk in a latte you'll get a little extra calcium and protein – nutrients you need during pregnancy anyway.

Be sure to drink plenty of water during your pregnancy. Milk and 100 percent fruit juices are also good choices.
