Caf­feine! Ex­ces­sive caf­feine (three cups of cof­fee a day or more) can de­crease blood flow to the pla­centa and af­fect baby’s growth. It’s also a di­uretic that causes your body to lose wa­ter and flu­ids con­tain­ing es­sen­tial vi­ta­mins you and baby need. Try to cut out caf­feine en­tirely, but if you re­ally need your daily fix, don’t go over the rec­om­mended max­i­mum of 200mg a day.
