You shouldn't drink more than three 8-ounce servings a day.

That's the limit we use because in studies of dairy cattle, when pregnant cows were given any more than that, their calves were born smaller.

Caffeine can cut down on the amount of blood flowing to the placenta, and you don't want to do that because the baby won't be getting as much oxygen.

But in moderate amounts, caffeine poses no measurable risk to the fetus.
