Can I have one cup of caffeineted tea each day?

Hi Alex, I am 4 weeks pregnant with my first. Very excited! Just have what might seem like a stupid question - can I have one cup of caffeineted tea each day? Some literature says flat out `no` while others say to cut down but beware of dangers in first trimester. Also when eating boiled eggs, can the yolk be runny? Thanks Alex

Answer: Hi, Congratulations! One cup of tea per day is fine but if you do want to cut out all caffeine you need to have decaf. Runny eggs are fine. Here is a link to healthy eating in pregnancy: http://www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au/consumers/life%2Devents%2Dand%2Dfood/pregnancy/ Best wishes, Alex
