Headaches

I hate waking up with a headache. I know why I have it, I stopped drinking Dr Pepper again yesterday. I say again because I have stopped drinking Dr Pepper a million times, and always end up going back and drinking it again. I know caffeine isn't good for the baby, but I also know that the usual problems caused by caffeine are low birth weight and other circumstantial or anecdotal problems, nothing has been actually proven to be harmful about drinking it while pregnant. But I can tell it effects him, when I drink Starbucks he turns into the chorus of A Chorus Line, kicking like crazy. So, I am trying to cut back on the caffeine. Problem with that is the stupid headaches caused by not drinking caffeine. Yes, I know that means I am addicted to caffeine. But of all the things to be addicted to, it's low on the damage scale, ya know?

Anyways, wish me luck on day two with no caffeine. Hopefully this headache will let up soon so I can get on with what I have to get done...

Beckie,

You shouldn't have to suffer with a headache if you replace your coffee with some other items with caffeine and gradually reduce your intake. Black tea has about 1/2 the caffeine as coffee and green tea about 1/4. I know, I am regularly either giving it up or getting addicated. Congratulations on your pregnancy. (And we met, btw, I lived in Visalia but moved to the Sierras and we posted on the B for a bit at the same time.)
