The news is out, this coffee blogger is pregnant. After 16 weeks I am once again able to indulge in warm beverages. Not regularly, however up until now all I have been able to drink is cold water, milk and actually just anything cold and refreshing. Not the ideal situation for a coffee blogger but I always knew it would be a difficult one with all the caffeine warnings out there for pregnant women.
So I had to do the research because as some of you know, I am going to Australia to visit a bunch of coffee shops in June! Yes the pregnant coffee blogger is doing a coffee tour down under. LUCKILY my husband is as big (if not bigger) a coffee nerd as I am. So regulation is decaf or no more than 1 cup of coffee a day. Some espresso has a higher dose of caffeine than others so we’ll be ordering one to share wherever we go so I can get the tastes in at all the great coffee shops we’ll visit.
I’d love to hear from the coffee lovers out there who have experienced pregnancy and the joys of cutting down on coffee. Any tips?
I must admit I am not one who HAS to have a coffee first thing in the morning. I actually rarely drink coffee at home. I like to save the experience for a good coffee shop so I can really enjoy it and share that experience with my readers.
So the next 6 months should be great fun as we count down to meeting our little coffee bean. I’ll be documenting our Australia trip on Instagram so make sure you’re following me @pipsrowney and when I return I will have SO many awesome spots to share on my blog and coffee map. I cannot wait.
