One cup of coffee a day would not cause any harm, but you should try to restrict your craving.

Try decaffinated coffee - it still has that coffee flavour and smell and there's much less caffeine in it.

Coffee neither tea is good for you and and your baby's health in pregnancy. I think you should rather drink lots of milk, and try rooibos tea.

Good luck
