It is a very good idea to avoid drinking excess caffeine while pregnant and to avoid the additives they put in those engery drinks. Taurine, found in Red Bull and some others, is a vital nutrient for cats but is not part of the natural human diet. Even energy drinks that are caffeine free and "natural" are not always a safe bet. Natural does not equal healthy. Arsenic, opium, poisonous mushrooms, sugar and E. coli are all natural too. Talk with your OB about what foods are safe and what to avoid. Some times an additive or homeopathic pill is safe alone but added to pregnancy or other medicines becomes dangerous. And what is safe for a grown woman isn't always safe for babies. Your best advice will always come from your OB, he can also help you think of ways to help beat that sense of afternoon tiredness. :)

Why would you want to work for Starbucks?

Starbucks is a great employer, ive worked there for a while now and i love it. They have great benefits, and it looks really good on a resume. you also get to learn about how much Starbucks gives back. not just to the community , but to everywhere. plus interacting with the customers during the day , and makeing drinks seems to always keep you in a good mood. the discounts are great to , 30% off, free drinks on your shift and 40% off at Christmas. I love working at Starbucks because of the customers. It is so fun to see someone's face absolutly light up when you remember their name and their drink. Its also fun to do coffee tasting and sample all the drinks when you first start. Starbucks is the WORST company on earth to work for. Employees work their asses off for minimum wage, most are part-time without any benefits whatsoever, and the stress level is unbelievable. There is no payoff for working at Starbucks at all. Starbucks blows!!! Support your local coffee bar, get rid of Starbucks once and for all!! btw: I know of what I speak because I work for Starbucks and I'm quitting thank GOD!!!
