Alcohol – Whatever goes into your body affects your baby too. Avoid drinking alcohol while you are pregnant.

Caffeine – In addition, you should avoid consuming a lot of caffeine. Studies have shown that moderate caffeine intake does not affect pregnancy, however, caffeine is a mild diuretic and you need to drink plenty of water.
