Too Much Caffeine Causes Miscarriages

Small amounts of caffeine during pregnancy are probably okay, but more than 200mg per day will increase the chances of losing your fetus. That is about 12 ounces of coffee, but you have to add in the caffeine in soda pop, chocolate, tea and most energy bars and drinks. Be careful if you are pregnant, especially in the first trimester.
